Wilmot Cancer Center601 Elmwood AveRochester, NY 14642Faculty AppointmentsAssociate Professor (Part-Time) - Department of Radiation Oncology (SMD) Patient Care SettingsCancer, Radiation OncologyBiographyI was drawn to gastrointestinal oncology because it is a challenging field, which includes some of the most lethal cancers. Radiation therapy plays an important role in the management of these diverse malignancies, including its use prior to surgery, as definitive treatment with chemotherapy and for palliation of local or metastatic disease. I also have expertise in stereotactic body radiation therapy for the treatment of primary and metastatic gastrointestinal malignancies. My philosophy of patient care is based on a personalized approach, providing each patient with comprehensive information regarding his or her diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis. It is a privilege to be entrusted with a patient's care – and I will always do my best to treat my patients with integrity, compassion and respect. Conditions I Treat - Esophageal cancer - Pancreatic cancer - Liver cancer - Rectal cancer - Anal cancer - Other gastrointestinal malignanciesCredentialsEducation1985MD | Sackler School of Medicine (Tel Aviv University)Post-doctoral Training & Residency07/01/1991 - 06/30/1992Fellowship in Radiation Oncology at University of Rochester School of Medicine GME09/01/1986 - 12/01/1993Residency at Chaim Sheba Medical Center (Israel)08/30/1985 - 07/30/1986Internship at Assaf Nasofeh Medical CenterVIEW ALL expand_moreAwards2011 - 2014Physician's Recognition AwardSponsor: American Medical Association2005Casarett AwardSponsor: Department of Radiation Oncology, University of RochesterLocation: Rochester, NYPublicationsJournal Articles2022Kachnic LA; Winter KA; Myerson RJ; Goodyear MD; Abitbol AA; Streeter OE; Augspurger ME; Schefter TE; Katz AW; Fisher BJ; Henke LE; Narayan S; Crane CH.
