One of the most technological advances in the field of radiation oncology is stereotactic radiosurgery.
SRS is a treatment which targets radiation to small tumors in the brain and spine with precision and accuracy. The radiation beams enter the body from multiple angles and intersect where the tumor is located, targeting high dose radiation and avoid other critical tissues that surround it. Typically one to three treatments are needed to successfully eradicate the tumor. A similar technique for the rest of the body is stereotactic body radiation therapy or “SBRT”. SBRT is often utilized to target small tumors in the lungs, liver, pancreas, and prostate. SBRT is delivered in two-to-five treatments and also delivers high-dose, focused radiation while safely avoiding other normal tissue around the tumor.
SRS and SBRT require special equipment and a trained radiation oncologist to deliver. Dr. Gullett has experience using multiple technology platforms including GammaKnife, Varian True Beam, Novalis, and Cyberknife. If you would like a consultation to discuss SRS/SBRT with Dr. Gullett, please call 910-291-7630.

“My daughter has stage 4 gliablastoma and had it not been for the care she received from Dr. Gullett and her staff she would probably not be with us now. I would highly recommend her, she is a wonderful caring doctor who does what is best for her patients. If you ever had the need for a Radiation Oncology doctor she would be my choice.”

“Dr. Gullett is compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. She listens and then develops a plan with you, taking into consideration what will work best for you. She suggested the Live Strong program at the YMCA, which was a wonderful program. Dr. Gullett is willing to think of healthcare in an expanded way, and to encourage the patient to do the same.”
