Daniel Higginson Lab

I am a radiation oncologist who specializes in the use of highly precise, high-dose radiotherapy to treat tumors in the spine, brain, and other organs. I use advanced imaging and radiosurgery technology to precisely target cancers while sparing normal tissue. With these technologies, we can give repeated courses of radiation to tumors next to the spinal cord. I am part of a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and interventional radiologists that provides seamless personalized care.
