Karyn A. Goodman, MD

About Me

I am a radiation oncologist specializing in cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. My goal is to introduce the most cutting-edge technology in radiation oncology to the treatment of GI malignancies, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy, image-guided radiation therapy, and stereotactic body radiotherapy, with the intent of reducing toxicity and improving our results from radiation therapy. In addition to my interest in technical advances in radiation oncology, I am also involved in the development of therapeutic protocols combining radiation, chemotherapy, and targeted agents for gastrointestinal cancers. I am also interested in quality of life and late effects after radiotherapy.
