Cirrone has made it his lifelong ambition to learn as much about the cancer process, the treatment of cancer, and the cancer patient. He gravitated to the Radiation Oncology field for the challenge of mastering a single modality for the benefits of treating patients and for its multidisciplinary approach towards cancer treatment. During his Radiation Oncology training he learned how to treat all types of cancer and has treated many difficult cases. One of his interests in Radiation Oncology is the treatment of patients with organ preservation protocol. Radiation Oncology has been used in many areas to eradicate cancer while preserving function of the treatment site. Such sites include head and neck cancers, breast cancer, and rectal/anal cancer. Dr. Cirrone understands his patients are in a difficult time in their lives and he strives to treat each patient with compassion and the respect they deserve.
