Dr. Yamada's Care Philosophy

I am a radiation oncologist with expertise in treating cancers with brachytherapy (radiation placed inside of tumors) and image-guided radiation (using advanced medical imaging technology to deliver precise beams of radiation to safely destroy tumors.) Brachytherapy and image-guided radiation are both very effective and safe ways to treat tumors because high doses of radiation can be given to a tumor while sparing healthy tissue and causing few side effects. **I work with a team of highly skilled multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiologists, medical physicists, radiation therapists, and nurses. Through these collaborations, we are able to take advantage of the sophisticated medical technology available at Memorial Sloan-Kettering that is necessary to provide these types of treatment. **In addition, I am involved in clinical research that involves using image-guided technologies to treat tumors in all sites of the body, including adult brain and spine tumors, as well as liver tumors. I am also the primary investigator for several protocols using brachytherapy to treat cancers in the prostate. **I have been invited to speak in many scientific forums both nationally and internationally. I am currently serving as the program director for the 2008 World Brachytherapy Congress co-sponsored by the American Brachytherapy Society and Groupe Europeen de Curietherapie s European Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ESTRO).
