Radiation oncologists are highly specialized physicians who utilize radiation therapy treatments to treat patients suffering from cancer. Dr. Jhaveri is trained to identify the type of cancer and create a targeted treatment plan that will increase the patient's chances of overcoming the disease. To treat and manage cancer, radiation therapy targets malignancies, working to prevent cancer cells from continually dividing. As a result, radiation therapy can kill cancer cells and shrink tumors & growths.
Dr. Jhaveri is the lead author of several nationally published research articles on the role of radiation therapy. He has written about stereotactic body radiotherapy in the management of bone metastases, the emergence of integrated urology-radiation oncology practices, and a comparison on the effectiveness between helical tomotherapy (a spiral scan) and 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy, also known as 3D-CRT (radiation beams match the shape of the tumor to avoid healthy tissue), for advanced cancers.
