A board-certified radiation oncologist, Dr. Christian Hyde was the first clinician to use IMRT for head and neck cancer at the West Los Angeles VA hospital. He also is experienced in using image guided radiation therapy, stereotactic body radiation therapy, respiratory gating and brachytherapy to treat various forms of cancer.
“I consider it a real privilege to be involved in helping families cope with cancer,” says Dr. Hyde of his career. “Multiple members of my family have been affected by cancer and I understand the toll it can take, emotionally and physically. For me the fight against cancer is a very personal one.”
After earning a medical degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine, Dr. Hyde completed an internal medicine internship at University of Utah-affiliated hospitals. He then completed a radiation oncology residency at UCLA, where he was honored to serve as Chief Resident of UCLA Radiation Oncology.
Prior to joining our integrated team of cancer experts in 2012 at our newest hospital, Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan, Georgia, Dr. Hyde served as a radiation oncologist and Director of Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Huntsman-Intermountain Cancer Center in St. George, Utah. Before pursuing a medical degree, Dr. Hyde obtained a bachelor’s of science degree in biological science from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Dr. Hyde has been published in the Clinical Nuclear Medicine journal, and was invited to give a podium presentation on the use of IMRT and concurrent chemotherapy for head and neck sarcoma for the Southern California Radiation Oncology Society.
An outdoor enthusiast, Dr. Hyde enjoys bicycling, and once rode a solo, unsupported 800-mile bicycle tour of Northern California and the Oregon Coast. He also loves hiking and snorkeling, especially with his wife, Maureen, and their three children, Anna, Samuel and Henry.
