Colorectal Cancer


Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center experts at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Md., have vast expertise in managing all types of colorectal cancers. Part of the Johns Hopkins Colorectal Cancer Research Center of Excellence, our specialists have a long history with innovative screening, research and treatments for these cancers.


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.

  • Proton Therapy

    Some cancers may benefit from proton therapy, which uses high energy beams to deliver radiation. The Johns Hopkins Proton Therapy Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital is one of the largest and most advanced centers in the U.S.
