About This Presentation

Radiation treatment for breast cancer is known to reduce recurrence and increase survival of the disease. But are there risks associated with this form of treatment? What long-term effects may be attributed to radiation therapy? Do the therapeutic benefits outweigh the potential risks? Are there ways to prevent or minimize long-term effects? What should a patient be aware of in the weeks, months, and years following radiation treatment?

Join us for an evening educational seminar with Dr. Kevin Mudd of UR Medicine - Wilmot Cancer Institute in Batavia to learn answers to these questions and more.

About the Presenter, Kevin J. Mudd, M.D.

 

Dr. Mudd writes: I use a patient-centered approach to care and combine evidence-based medicine with a realistic treatment plan that suits each patient’s needs and situation. Often, I am the third, fourth or more consultation. In addition to radiation oncology, I have expertise in palliative care and pain management.

I have always been interested in treating cancer patients. I started out as a radiation therapy technologist and advanced my career by going to medical school. I grew up in Western New York and returned here after living in North Carolina and studying medicine in New York City. I reside in Spencerport with my wife and two children. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, golf, art and fine dining. I am also on the medical staff at Wyoming County Community Hospital, United Memorial Medical Center and Medina Memorial Hospital, and see inpatients as needed.
