About

Bio

I enjoy the practice of medicine and taking care of my patients. I specialize in the treatment of lung cancer and the use of radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiotherapy. I am an acitve researcher at both the regional and national level leading a number of clinical trials designed to hopefully help more patients beat cancer or improve the quality of their lives during there fight with cancer.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Category?: Really impossible to answer without more specifics. In general the best advice is to find a comprehensive team you can trust.

The M.D. matters : Just be careful not to get sucked up by marketing of a particular machine. That is an unpleasant part of modern medicine. Find the best team you can with lots of experience rather than a particular machine.

Single stage: Primary brain tumors (gliomas) are not staged 1 through 4 like cancers in other parts of the body. Prognosis has more to do with what type and if it can come out with surgery.
