Professional Focus

Dr. Anthony Wong specializes in the treatment of thoracic and genitourinary malignancies. His research focuses on innovative applications of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). He has a particular interest in treating lung cancer, prostate cancer and oligometastatic disease with linear accelerator-based and CyberKnife radiosurgery. He is the author of a currently accruing randomized clinical trial refining linear accelerator-based radiosurgery techniques, and his work has contributed to a growing body of literature defining the appropriate role of ablative local therapies in patients with oligometastases.
