Daphna Y. Gelblum, MD

I am a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and dose painting in the treatment of technically challenging cancers to maximize therapeutic gain while minimizing side effects from treatment. I treat various malignancies including lung, head and neck, gynecologic, breast, and brain cancers, as well as cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.

I have a particular interest in the use of IMRT in the treatment of patients with lung, head and neck, and breast cancers. I often 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 on Long Island.
