I am a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in treating brain tumors. In particular I have an expertise in stereotactic radiosurgery and hypofractionated courses of image guided radiation therapy for both metastatic disease and primary brain tumors. Together with my colleagues in diagnostic radiology we are studying different types of MRI sequences for primary brain tumors and the effect they may have on the design and delivery of radiation therapy. I also have an expertise in the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image guidance (IGRT) for the delivery of radiation for brain tumors.
Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.
