Radiation Oncology

I am a radiation oncologist who specializes in caring for people with cancers of the chest, known as thoracic cancers. These include lung cancers, pleural mesotheliomas, and thymomas. I work closely with a highly skilled team of experts from many areas — including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, medical physicists, and radiation therapists — to determine the best treatment options for my patients. We use advanced techniques including intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation therapy to precisely target cancers while limiting damage to normal tissues. I see nearly 400 patients each year at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Manhattan facilities.

We have made great progress in treating thoracic cancers with radiation. Some of the techniques we have pioneered at MSK are being adopted by other large academic cancer centers. We are also at work on a number of clinical trials specifically for thoracic patients.

When patients first come to see me, I try to help them understand how radiation oncology works. They may have concerns about the treatment and side effects, but their fears tend to dissipate when I explain that radiation is a localized treatment, similar to surgery, and that side effects are usually only at the area of treatment. I hope that after meeting with me, patients and their caregivers feel calm and have a better understanding of what the process is like. I especially enjoy when they later tell me that everything happened exactly as I explained it would!

Outside of work, I’m very interested in other cultures, classical music, and hiking.
