John P. Murtha Cancer Center LogoA part of the Murtha Cancer Center, we provide premier, patient-centered, comprehensive surgical oncology services for the treatment of cancer. We provide a multi-disciplinary approach, integrating supportive services such as nutrition, psychology, social work and pastoral care services.

Clinical care follows NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) guidelines in all appropriate cases.

We collaborate with some of the most prestigious institutions in the metropolitan area including the National Institutes of Health, Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University and University of Maryland.

We have a strong commitment to improve the quality of care through clinical research and translational research studies. All of our surgical oncologists are principal investigators on multiple clinical trials studying various aspects of cancer.
