The Johns Hopkins Center for Stomach Cancer Care multidisciplinary team provides innovative and evidence-based treatments and services that are tailored to the unique needs of each patient. We combine the expertise of surgical, medical and radiation oncologists — alongside gastroenterologists, dietitians and other specialists—to create specific treatment programs based on individual patients’ needs.
Our Treatment Research
Stomach (gastric) cancer patients receiving surgery, chemotherapy and radiation appear to have better survival rates than those who had surgery followed by only chemotherapy.
Early diagnosis of stomach cancers can lead to better outcomes. Our multidisciplinary team of gastroenterologists, surgical oncologists, medical oncologists and radiologists will determine the best diagnostic test and treatment for you.
