Priyesh Sharad Patel is an expert thoracic oncologist. In order to better deal with thoracic malignancies, he uses an innovative radiation therapy technique called stereotactic ablative therapy. This type of therapy uses smaller beams of radiation those compared to most radiation therapies. This helps ensure the safety of the surround normal tissue while targeting the malignancies directly in the body. The goal of stereotactic ablative therapy is to keep the cancer cells from growing and eventually shrink in size. This type of therapy treatment has had a lot of success in patients who are able to catch their cancers early in their growth. He was trained and educated in the United States of America where he currently resides with his wife and two children in Seattle, Washington.
