I was born in India and raised in Portland, Oregon. To complete my training in Radiation Oncology and gain experience in my chosen field, I moved to California for four years and to Minnesota for six years. By then, I had met by wife (also from Portland) and we wanted to come home to raise our family. It's great to live in Portland.
Within radiation oncology, I specialize in brachytherapy which is the placement of radioactive material directly in to a tumor or tumor bed. This allows a high dose of radiation to be delivered to the area of concern while sparing the surrounding health tissues. In appropriate patients and situations, it is highly effective. I most often use brachytherapy for prostate, breast and gynecologic cancers.
Life is busy with three children and an active practice. We enjoy exercise, golf and wine when time allows, and otherwise just enjoying our children's lives.
