Dr. Kenny Yoo, Director of Interventional Radiology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® (CTCA), Chicago, believes being a doctor and caring for cancer patients requires more than diagnosing and treating cancer. He says, “Being a doctor is about treating the patient and the family who is battling cancer and helping them understand what they are dealing with. My goal is to empower them with information throughout their fight.”

As an interventional radiologist at CTCA® Chicago, Dr. Yoo diagnoses and treats patients using minimally invasive and innovative techniques in order to reduce risk to patients, and improve health outcomes and quality of life. He and the hospital’s interventional radiology team also use a variety of therapies such as TheraSphere®, radioembolization, radiofrequency ablation, vertebroplasty and lutetium Lu 177 dotatate to treat cancer patients.

Dr. Yoo is board certified by the American Board of Radiology. Additionally, he is certified in vascular and interventional radiology. He earned a medical degree from Rush University in Chicago. He completed an internship at Malden Hospital in Malden, Massachusetts. He also completed residencies in nuclear medicine and diagnostic radiology, as well as an interventional radiology fellowship at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York. While at Strong Memorial, he also served as Chief Resident.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York, where he graduated cum laude. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Prior to joining CTCA®, Dr. Yoo served patients at numerous hospitals throughout the Chicago area.

Dr. Yoo has collaborated, researched and published key studies and abstracts in publications such as the Journal of Nuclear Medicine and the Journal of Pediatric Surgery. He has also presented at multiple conferences. He is a member of the Society of Interventional Radiology and the American College of Radiology.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
