Approach to Treatment
“My approach to patient care is very simple: treat every patient as you want to be treated, and be there for him or her every step of the way. More precisely, I get to know my patients, listen to them and treat the whole patient, not just treat their cancer.
Becoming a doctor who uses physics and computers to cure cancer was a natural for me. My interest in technology began in high school—when I began studying physics and building electronics from scratch.
As a radiation oncologist I have always been concerned with the side effects and complications patients experienced as a result of radiation treatment techniques that have remained essentially unchanged over the last 50 years. As I strove to reduce side effects and complications, I discovered that I could get better results for my patients with practically no significant side effects or complications using the CyberKnife radiosurgery techniques.
For the last 11 years I have dedicated my practice to providing treatment to my patients that is maximally beneficial and minimally consequential and I am grateful that we are accomplishing this every day at Anova Cancer Care.”
—Dr. Gregg A. Dickerson
