PARK RIDGE, Ill. – Park Ridge-based Illinois CyberKnife has added Dr. Majid Mohiuddin to its staff of physicians certified to treat patients with CyberKnife, a noninvasive full-body cancer treatment system.
A board-certified radiation oncologist, Mohiuddin is a member of several professional organizations including the American College of Radiology and has expertise in treatment of lung and prostate cancers. He holds a medical degree from Brown University Medical School and completed his radiation oncology residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
“Dr. Mohiuddin will be a valued addition to our staff,” says Dr. Arica Hirsch, medical director of Illinois CyberKnife. “His extensive experience treating tumors throughout the body adds to our clinical team’s specialized expertise.”
CyberKnife treats malignant and benign tumors and other medical conditions with high-dose radiation beams precisely aimed from different angles.
