I grew up in Missouri and went to the Missouri State and Univ of Missouri.
I had honors and awards in Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, and Radiation Oncology. My residency was completed at Univ of Texas Medical Branch where the majority of professors were from MD anderson and Joint Center (Harvard). I passed boards and practiced in Louisiana ever since. As director of my department I introduced every new advancement in Radiation Oncology including HDR brachytherapy, IMRT, IGRT, Cyberknife Radiosurgery and excelled at Prostate Brachytherapy with seeds. Being good with your hands, visual spatial concepts and detailed abillities allowed me to see and treat over 1300 patients with seed brachytherapy for prostate cancer. Radiation is used in many cancers with the majority of cancers I treat now consisting of breast, lung and rectal.
