Dr. Christian Hyde joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® in Newnan, Georgia, in 2012 and was the founding radiation oncologist at the start of hospital operations.
With his extensive experience in radiosurgery, Dr. Hyde initiated the use of totally non-invasive brain radiosurgery at our Atlanta-area hospital. He led the adoption of several other advanced technologies, including respiratory gating and prone radiation positioning for breast cancer, which better spare a woman’s heart from radiation. For many men with prostate cancer, Dr. Hyde brought MRI planning and Calypso guidance for prostate cancer, which can shorten radiation from 40 treatment days to just 5 treatments.
Dr. Hyde also is experienced in using image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy 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. “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, where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha-Omega-Alpha honor society, Dr. Hyde completed an internship in Internal Medicine at University of Utah-affiliated hospitals. He then completed a residency in Radiation Oncology at UCLA, where he served as Chief Resident of UCLA Radiation Oncology.
Prior to CTCA®, Dr. Hyde was a radiation oncologist and director of stereotactic radiosurgery at Huntsman-Intermountain Cancer Center in St. George, Utah. A constant innovator, he was the first clinician to use IMRT for head and neck cancer at the West Los Angeles VA hospital.
Dr. Hyde’s academic contributions include a publication on PET scanning in Clinical Nuclear Medicine, a book chapter on GYN brachytherapy, and live debates on the virtues of lung radiosurgery compared to traditional surgery. Currently his interests are focused on the combination of advanced radiosurgery techniques with recent immunotherapy breakthroughs.
An outdoor enthusiast, Dr. Hyde enjoys bicycling. He 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.
