Tailored Cancer Treatments

Our medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, interventional radiologists and gastroenterologists, as well as nurses, advanced practice providers, social workers, and other caregivers, work together to support each patient’s experience. New colon and rectal patients have access to a full multidisciplinary care team. Our experts participate in tumor board conferences to discuss new patient cases across the Johns Hopkins network to gain expertise from all sites. Each patient participates in forming an individualized care plan that maximizes the opportunity for a successful outcome. Patients also have access to innovative clinical trials.

  • Novel Cancer Treatments

    Our colon and rectal cancer experts offer a range of treatment options, including chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, as well as immunotherapy and novel treatments through clinical trials.
