About Us

The Department of Radiation Oncology

The practice of radiation oncology advances continuously. Major strides in technology allow physicians to treat patients more comfortably and with better results than ever before. Biological and genetic research is helping to unravel the mysteries and benefits of radiation treatment for cancer at a remarkable rate. Those discoveries are leading to dramatic results in patient care.

At NewYork-Presbyterian - Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC), we are at the forefront of this progress. Home of the prestigious Columbia University Center for Radiological Research, the nation’s largest and most experienced university-based research center for radiation biology, the doctors and scientists of Columbia Radiation Oncology are world-renowned.
