CMH and Massey Cancer Center have joined together to bring advanced cancer treatment through radiation therapy to the community.

Come meet Dr. Paul Goetowski, Radiation Oncology Director, as he gives an overview of radiation treatment in cancer care and the benefits it will bring at May’s C.O.R.E. (Community Outreach Education) Program at Community Memorial Healthcenter (CMH.)

This free program will be held on Tuesday, May 21 at 7 p.m. in the CMH Education Center at 125 Buena Vista Circle in South Hill.

Goetowski will cover an overview of radiation therapy including what it is, how it works, why this type of therapy is used in treating cancer and what it means to have this available in our community. There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.

Goetowski earned his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and completed an internship in internal medicine at the University of North Dakota. He completed his residency in radiation oncology at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he was chief resident.

Goetowski has extensive experience in treating multiple tumor types as well as in using radiation to treat several noncancerous (benign) conditions, including intravascular brachytherapy for cardiac stenosis, postoperative keloid treatment and graves orbital disease. Goetowski is Board Certified by the American Board of Radiology.
