Gaurav Marwaha, M.D., radiation oncologist at Rush Radiosurgery, was a guest speaker at Alliance Oncology’s 2017 Division Meeting.
The annual meeting was held April 12 – 14 at the Sheraton Grand in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
The title of Dr. Marwaha’s presentation was “21st Century Lung Cancer Management: Catching Up to Technology.” Dr. Marwaha, who specializes in treating chest tumors, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, mediastinal tumors and mesothelioma with radiation therapy, lectured about the use of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for the treatment of lung tumors and metastases. He co-presented the material with Keith Naunheim, M.D., general surgeon at St. Louis University Health Sciences Center. Dr. Marwaha and Dr. Naunheim had a lung treatment showdown, discussing clinical consideration for lung SBRT versus surgery. The two physicians also presented actual lung cases and debated on which treatment option would be best for the patients. They ended their segment with a Q&A session from the audience.
