Stage IV Colorectal Cancer

The treatment of Stage IV colorectal cancer can be complex requiring input from Surgery, Medical Oncology, Pathology, Radiology and Radiation Oncology.  Chemotherapy is usually the first step in your treatment process, although surgery may be indicated in certain cases.  A mutli-disciplinary approach is mandatory and the team at Johns Hopkins will meet together to discuss your case and develop a customized treatment plan that specifically addresses your unique situation.  Clinical trials are options for all stages of colorectal cancer patients at Johns Hopkins and may be fully explored with your team of experts.  The strength of our cancer program ensures that patients receive the most advanced, effective, and safe treatments best suited for their specific case and stage of disease.
