Patient Care Philosophy
Being diagnosed with and treated for cancer is one of the most arduous journeys that any person will experience. Every patient and every cancer is different. As a radiation oncologist, my goal is to guide patients through this difficult time by providing the most compassionate, personalized care possible and making sure they have access to the latest, innovative clinical trials and state-of-the-art technology.
Gastrointestinal cancers (esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, bile duct, rectum, anus); genitourinary cancers, metastatic cancer, proton therapy.
Dr. Apisarnthanarax is interested in improving patient care by optimizing the way radiation therapy is delivered through novel functional imaging. In particular, his current interest focuses on developing novel ways in imaging the function of the liver so that radiation treatments can be personalized for each patient and be delivered more effectively and safely. He also has interest in radiosensitization and combining radiation with novel biologic agents as radiosensitizers.
