Daphna Y. Gelblum, MD

I am a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) in the treatment of technically challenging cancers to maximize therapeutic gain while minimizing side effects from treatment. I treat a variety of malignancies, including gynecologic and breast diseases, with a special focus on the combined modality treatment of head and neck cancers, lung cancers, and the design and delivery of stereotactic body radiation therapy.

I work closely with my medical oncology colleagues to combine chemotherapy, targeted agents, and radiation therapy in the treatment of these cancers. I also participate in institutional and national clinical trials to help bring state-of-the-art cancer care to my patients in Westchester. I have been the principal investigator at Memorial Sloan Kettering for several national lung cancer trials.
