New Chief of Thoracic Radiation Oncology at Penn
As chief, Dr. Simone will lead a team of four clinicians working in the thoracic service, which currently accounts for one of the largest patient volumes of any service within the department of radiation oncology at Penn. His responsibilities will span from the development and implementation of a standardized clinical treatment approach to thoracic malignancies at Penn Medicine, and all network facilities to improving the overall patient experience treated on this service.
Dr. Simone will continue working with photodynamic therapy (PDT) with his new responsibilities, as well as proton therapy for lung cancer, and proton therapy for mesothelioma.
