Training and Expertise
The physicians of Radiation Oncology Associates have trained rigorously with a diverse range of experiences from well-regarded academic institutions such as Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Georgetown University, Wake Forest, University of Maryland, Thomas Jefferson University, Washington University in St Louis, Cornell, and the University of Washington in Seattle.
Radiation Oncology Associates consists of a well-balanced group of physicians with complementary strengths that translate into excellent personalized care for our patients. The senior partners of our group provide sound clinical judgement cultivated from almost 30 years of medical practice treating thousands of patients. Our established partners bring the sophistication of their experiences from academic faculty positions at institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Harvard and Duke University. Our younger physicians bring cutting edge radiation techniques learned at top medical schools in America, with an up-to-date knowledge base including new clinical trials in the specialty of radiation oncology. Over the years, our physicians have been consistently recognized as Washingtonian Magazine's Top Doctors.
Radiation Oncology Associates is also involved in training visiting resident physicians-in-training from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The new ideas and experiences of physicians-in-training from well-regarded academic institutions such as the NCI and NIH brings additional depth to the care we are able to provide.
Radiation Oncology Associates is active in radiation oncology research, with a number of patient protocols on the national level with the NCI-funded RTOG (Radiation Therapy Oncology Group), NRG Oncology (merged NSABP, RTOG and GOG) as well as locally with the Inova Health System. Notable research protocols include intraoperative radiation therapy for breast cancer, stereotactic accelerated partial breast irradiation, and stereotactic body radiation therapy for prostate cancer. With safety and sound research practices in mind, our group is also an integral member of the Inova Research Oversight Committee that meets monthly to discuss proposed and active research protocols at Fairfax Inova Hospital.
