Hanoi High Tech and Digestive Center at the St. Paul Hospital in Vietnam launches its thermal oncology program with the assistance of Dr. Mark Hurwitz. In the photo above, Dr. Hurwitz is explaining the functions of the thermal mapping probe of the newly installed BSD-2000 3D deep regional hyperthermia system.
Saint Paul General Hospital opened the Digestive Center in 2017, specializing in endoscopic surgery and the treatment of digestive disease including stomach and pelvic cancers. Built following European standards, it is the country’s leading endoscopic surgery facility.
Dr. Hurwitz was invited to lecture on hyperthermia best practices and share his vast knowledge and experiences in the field of thermal oncology and its role in cancer treatment.
Dr. Hurwitz is a globally known thermal oncologist and radiation oncologist. He is currently Vice-Chair for Quality, Safety & Performance Excellence, and Director of Thermal Oncology, Department of Radiation Oncology, at Jefferson Health, Sidney Kimmel Medical College.
Often a featured lecturer at conferences throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia, his hands-on clinical knowledge of both deep regional and superficial thermal therapy prepares new sites, like St. Paul, to become leaders in this cancer treatment technology.
