Dr. Feigenberg received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Drexel University in 1991. He received his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in 1997. He completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia and residency in Radiation Oncology at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Since completing his training, he worked at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia where his clinical and research interests focused on lung cancer, head and neck cancer with a special interest in stereotactic body radiotherapy.
In 2009, he was recruited to University of Maryland’s Department of Radiation Oncology to lead the stereotactic body radiotherapy program, specifically to focus on tumors in the lung, liver and breast.
Dr. Feigenberg’s current interest continues to be centered around stereotactic radiotherapy and developing non-invasive methods to predict treatment responses. This is of utmost importance now that we are comparing this approach to surgery. Trying to develop early surrogates of treatment response are imperative to allow early surgical salvage if/when necessary. We are also investigating the mechanism of this novel technique which appears to be related to stimulating the immune system causing one’s body to fight tumor cells.
