Dr. Kuske's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kuske "Pioneer of Breast Brachytherapy"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kuske "Dr. Robert Kuske is a radiation oncologist who is passionate about helping women with breast cancer.  Dr. Kuske pioneered "accelerated partial breast irradiation," a five-day alternative to the conventional six weeks of external beam whole breast irradiation in select early-stage breast cancer. Brachytherapy also spares the lung and heart from radiation exposure. He is a leader of the important 4300 patient phase III trial through the National Cancer Institute. He is recognized for his work that allows women who have been augmented with breast implants to be successfully treated with lumpectomy and 5-day radiation without hardening of the implants. Dr. Kuske is one of only a dozen radiation doctors in the U.S. who restrict their practice to breast cancer and publish extensively in medical literature. He was honored as the top medical researcher in the Valley."

I was referred to Dr. Kuske by my surgeon. Dr. Kuske called and explained how the Brachy Triumph-T Trial would be performed and answered all my questions. The procedure was perfect for me, I had no pain and I had excellent results.
