Sheryl Green, MBBCh
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Radiation Oncology
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.
