Anatoly Dritschilo, MD, was appointed to the dual positions of professor and chairman, Department of Radiation Medicine, at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and chief of service, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, in 2010. Previously, Dr. Dritschilo served as chair for the Department of Oncology and as interim director of the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. In the course of his career, Dr. Dritschilo has personally treated more than 5,000 patients with cancers of the breast, prostate, lung or gastrointestinal tract, as well as those with malignant or benign brain tumors and pediatric cancers. He was instrumental in bringing state-of-the-art therapies and technologies to the hospital, including CyberKnife SRS and SBRT services in 2002. That move made MedStar Georgetown one of the first CyberKnife sites on the East Coast, leading to its current position as a national leader in volume, experience and expertise. He also sees, consults and provides proton treatment for patients at the Maryland Proton Treatment Center. Dr. Dritschilo is a prolific researcher, with a cumulative total of more than $20 million in NIH awards and nearly 250 peer-reviewed articles to date. In turn, he is a regular reviewer or editor for prominent scientific and medical publications, a sought-after presenter at major national meetings and a frequent guest lecturer at medical schools around the county. The holder of a dozen US patents and a diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners, Dr. Dritschilo received his medical degree from the College of Medicine of New Jersey followed by a residency in radiation therapy and a fellowship in radiation oncology, both at Harvard Medical School. After a brief stint at Tufts University-New England Medical Center, Dr. Dritschilo joined Georgetown in 1979.
