UMGCCC's designation by the National Cancer Institute as a comprehensive cancer center means we not only have the physicians with the expertise needed to treat complex cancers but the technology and institutional scope to offer:
Multidisciplinary Clinic - Our patients can see a range of specialists all in one appointment and work with an oncology nurse navigator for coordination of services and support.
Radiation Therapy - The comprehensive radiation therapy options at UMGCCC mean the right therapy for you can be easily integrated into your treatment plan.
Proton Therapy - UMGCCC is affiliated with Maryland's only proton therapy center. This highly focused therapy means the radiation targets the tumor not healthy tissues.
Robotic Surgery - This minimally invasive technology can reduce side effects of head and neck surgery.
Clinical Trials - As an academic medical center, we are able to offer our patients access to clinical trials offering new and advanced therapies.
