As a Uro-Oncologist/Radiation Oncologist, my over-riding concern is to cure patients having prostate cancer (and select other sites) while minimizing side effects. I pioneered brachytherapy for the prostate and have published 7 medical textbooks on this modality, 12 medical booklets and over 100 medical journal articles on this topic. I developed the most sophisticated form of external radiation called "DART". With DART, a "microbeam" strikes an individual target called a "voxel" (a cubic millimeter) while it is moving. Using a proprietary software program, the target region and surrounding normal anatomy becomes "voxelized". Normal tissues are "off limits" unless the tumor directly invades that structure. I commonly use nanoparticle diagnostic technologies to precisely target tumors with DART (especially patients who have advanced nodal/bone disease). I have published the highest cure rates for intermediate to high-risk prostate cancer while boasting the lowest side effects worldwide.
I consider myself a Uro-Oncologist/Radiation Oncologist with well over two decades of brachytherapy experience and have performed tens of thousands of prostate implant procedures. Over this time period, I have been instrumental in pioneering prostate brachytherapy and optimizing brachytherapy designs to maximize tumor eradication and minimize symptoms. I have authored 7 medical textbooks, 11 consumer textbooks and have published countless medical journal articles on this topic. I have published the longest and highest published cure rates in all of the medical literature treating prostate cancer with the least side effects. I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish. I have applied the same technology to other forms of cancer, especially bladder, colorectal, gyn, breast and lung. I was appointed Associate Professor in Brachytherapy and Radiation Oncology at Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center in New York and at New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center prior to relocating to Florida. While in Florida, we are known for developing an extremely precise form of external beam radiation called DART. I serve on multiple medical journal editorial review boards. Government appointments include "The Prostate Cancer Task Force" of Florida and I am consultant to the "Washington Oncology Roundtable Advisory Committee". I have been selected by the "International Association of Oncologists" as a "Leading Physician of the World and top Brachytherapist".
