    I am a radiation oncologist whose clinical practice is dedicated to the treatment of patients with breast cancer. My colleagues and I offer breast cancer treatment using state of the art radiation treatment techniques, customized to each individual, focusing on optimizing treatment outcomes while minimizing any normal tissue toxicity. I am also the co-director of the Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, which focuses on the non- invasive delivery of highly targeted radiation therapy for management of tumors of the brain and/or spine (both benign and malignant).

    My clinical research is focused on optimizing the quality of life of patients undergoing breast cancer radiation therapy. Together with my psychologist colleagues, we have completed several studies evaluating factors which negatively impact quality of life (QOL) and have successfully developed and implemented specific interventions to minimize or prevent a decrease in QOL.

    I am a member of several professional organizations including The American Society for Therapeutic Radiation and Oncology, The American College of Radiology and The American Society of Breast Diseases.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Green did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.

Insurance Information

Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).

Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date.
