Physicians from the departments of oncology, surgery, medicine, and pathology, along with a team of specialized nurses, social workers, and genetic counselors, are dedicated to the management and cure of colorectal cancer. The Johns Hopkins colorectal cancer health care team meets regularly to discuss every diagnosis, and to develop a coordinated approach that ensures the best possible treatment and outcome for each patient.
 
We believe patients are an integral part of the Johns Hopkins colorectal cancer health care team, and that the patient-professional partnership assures the best care. We encourage patients to take an active part in their recovery.
 
The Johns Hopkins colorectal cancer web site is designed to assist patients, families, and caregivers in learning more about colorectal cancer and the care available at Johns Hopkins. This web site is one component of the Johns Hopkins commitment to comprehensive patient care.
