s and have delivered treatment with very low complication rates."

Dr. Habr-Gama believes that her research will impact treatment approaches for rectal cancer, both in the United States and internationally. In the decade since this research was first published, her team has published several prospective and retrospective studies that further refine the protocol to help maximize the clinical response and safety of this treatment approach.

"Our research on this approach has provided a considerable amount of evidence to suggest that select patients with complete clinical response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy may be safely spared from immediate radical surgery. There is indication that there will be trials in the United States using this treatment strategy," she said. "This represents a significant change in the surgical, medical and radiation oncology communities and will allow a more robust understanding of the role of 'watch and wait' for the management of select patients with rectal cancer."

Dr. Habr-Gama is grateful for the recognition from the radiation oncology community of her work and research to benefit cancer patients.

"This award confirms that all of the effort, hard work and perseverance in pursuing this treatment strategy for the sole benefit of patients with rectal cancer have been valuable. It takes time to implement changes in medicine and in people's minds. I feel truly rewarded to see it happening in front of me," concluded Dr. Habr-Gama.
