I was particularly attracted to radiation oncology due to my background in physics and the multitude of options radiation provides to treat patients with cancer. I have special interests in brachytherapy (low-dose and high-dose rates), as well as the protection of normal tissue during radiation therapy. Since I believe all patients have unique stories to tell, my goal is to understand their individual stories – and then to discuss and tailor their radiation and cancer care. I love my work and feel privileged to support patients during the very difficult – and often rewarding – time of cancer treatment and follow-up. Conditions I Treat - Genitourinary cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular, etc.) - Gynecologic cancers (endometrial, cervical, etc.) - General radiation oncologyCredentialsSpecialtiesRadiation Oncology - American Board of RadiologyEducation2008MD | University of Rochester School of Medicine & DentistryPost-doctoral Training & Residency07/01/2009 - 06/30/2013Residency in Radiation Oncology at University of Rochester Medical Center07/01/2008 - 06/30/2009Internship in Internal Medicine at Saint Louis UniversityAwards2015Educator of the YearSponsor: Association of Residents in Radiation Oncology2012RSNA Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research AwardSponsor: University of RochesterLocation: Rochester, NY2008RSNA Roentgen Resident/Fellow Research AwardSponsor: University of IowaLocation: Iowa City, IAVIEW ALL expand_morePublicationsJournal Articles2020Ryan Wolf J; Gewandter JS; Bautista J; Heckler CE; Strasser J; Dyk P; Anderson T; Gross H; Speer T; Dolohanty L; Bylund K; Pentland AP; Morrow GR.
