Dr. Kubicky is the spine tumor program leader for the Department of Radiation Medicine and co-leader of the multidisciplinary spine program for the Knight Cancer Institute.
"Dr. Kubicky's selection to the American College of Radiology's Expert Panel for Bone Metastases, is evidence of her development as a thought leader in the delivery of radiotherapy for patients with spinal and paraspinal metastatic tumors," said Charles Thomas, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Radiation Medicine. "Furthermore, her appointment is further validation of the national peer respect that the Knight Cancer Institute's Multidisciplinary Spine Tumor Program has garnered in a relatively short time."
In this role, Dr. Kubicky will develop national guidelines for the treatment of patients with bone metastases, a very common sequalae for many solid tumors worldwide. The economic impact on the health care system is significant and Dr. Kubicky's work will help to provide much needed evidence-based recommendations on how to treat these patients.
