Experts from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and Brady Urological Institute at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and Suburban Hospital in Washington, D.C., have expertise in managing all types of prostate cancers.
Our fellowship-trained medical and radiation oncologists, urologists, radiologists and pathologists, along with nurses and other health professionals, work together to individualize treatment plans for patients, including providing access to novel clinical trials. Patients can meet with several specialists during multidisciplinary clinics held twice a month. Our specialists also participate in weekly tumor board meetings with faculty colleagues at our East Baltimore campus to discuss new patients and consult on treatment options. Each patient participates in forming a personalized care plan that maximizes the opportunity for a successful outcome.
Specialists with Johns Hopkins collaborate, consult and maintain a line of open communication with physicians in the community.
Podcasts Diagnosis and Treatments
Diagnosis and Treatment
Listen as Radiation oncologist Curtiland Deville discusses the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, and the Johns Hopkins National Proton Center.
Benefits of Clinical Trial
Listen to medical oncologist Michael Carducci talk about the benefit of clinical trials and treating patients with prostate cancer.
Cutting-Edge Treatments and Research
Our experts offer a range of treatments for prostate cancers, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, as well as immunotherapy and targeted therapies.
Johns Hopkins Proton Therapy Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital is one of the largest and most advanced centers in the U.S., with three treatment rooms and advanced pencil beam technology to “paint” tumors with cancer cell-killing proton energy layer by layer, sparing surrounding tissues and vital organs.
Our experts also use brachytherapy, which delivers radiation to prostate cancers through the placement of radioactive seeds at the tumor site.
Patients can receive nearly all of their care at locations within the greater Washington region.
Patient Support Services
Beyond medical treatment, our program has other innovative methods of supporting our patients. See our Center for Patient and Family Services page for information about social work, survivorship, patient navigation, spiritual support and other services, or call 202-537-4107.
Programs offered for cancer survivors include classes in yoga, meditation and mindfulness, reiki and art therapy. We also host a prostate cancer support group and an annual prostate cancer symposium at Suburban, as well as caregiver support groups and other services. Many options have been moved to online resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
