Why Choose Johns Hopkins For Colon Cancer Treatment
The Multidisciplinary Difference
The interaction among all research and clinical specialties that led to breakthrough discoveries is the hallmark of the Johns Hopkins Colorectal Cancer Research Center’s Multidisciplinary approach.
The multidisciplinary approach brings together multiple specialties, precision treatments designed specifically for the unique characteristics of each patient’s cancer, and the innovative research that revolutionized progress against colorectal cancer.
Immunotherapies provide long lasting control of specific colorectal cancers, including some advanced cancers.
Better detection methods, including circulating tumor cell technology known as liquid biopsy, detect small clusters of cancer cells years before they are visible on CT scans or other scans.
Advances in precision medicine, including identification of critical cancer signatures, allow doctors to customize treatment for individual patients.
