A board-certified radiation oncologist, Dr. Christian Hyde joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America® in Newnan, Georgia, in 2012. Since then, he has helped launch the hospital's Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) Program and has expanded the use of IORT to patients with challenging pelvic tumors.
With his extensive experience in radiosurgery, Dr. Hyde initiated the use of brain radiosurgery at our Atlanta-area hospital. He led the adoption of several treatments, including respiratory gating and prone radiation positioning for breast cancer, MRI planning and radiation therapy with Calypso for prostate cancer, and hippocampal-sparing whole brain radiation.
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, 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. He also was the first clinician to use IMRT for head and neck cancer at the West Los Angeles VA hospital.
Dr. Hyde has been published in Clinical Nuclear Medicine, and gave a podium presentation on the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and concurrent chemotherapy for head and neck cancer at the Southern California Radiation Oncology Society.
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.
