on directly to the tumor, improving the destruction of cancer cells. The reduction in radiation to the normal tissue around the tumor also helps reduce a patient's side effects.

"I was amazed by how well I felt -- it was easy and convenient and I really didn't feel uncomfortable at any time," explains Smith. "Dr. Levitt explained everything to me in a way I could understand. He took away any fears and anxiety I had."

Smith's daughter Shirley agrees, "After we spoke with Dr. Levitt, the nurse and the therapists, we felt everything was going to be fine."

"They saved my life," said Smith. "I've had 14 surgeries in my life and I really don't think I could have survived another…or any other treatment for my cancer."

Dr. Levitt is a board-certified radiation oncologist and Atlanta native, and the Medical Director of the North Georgia facility. He completed his doctorate and residency at Emory University's School of Medicine in Atlanta, and prior to joining RCOG, Dr. Levitt practiced in Colorado and Florida. Dr. Levitt was the first radiation oncologist in Colorado to develop a seed-based IGRT prostate program and  performed more than 45 SBRT procedures while in Colorado.

"Cancer patients are really fighting the biggest battle of their lives, and we are helping to cure them with minimal side effects," said Levitt. In the last three years, Dr. Levitt has treated over 50 patients using the SBRT technique.
