About me

Anatoly Dritschilo, MD, is a Radiation Oncologist at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Dritschilo was appointed to professor and chairman, Department of Radiation Medicine, at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and chief of service, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, in 2010 and held that role for 12 years. Previously, Dr. Dritschilo served as interim chair of the Department of Oncology and as interim director of the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Georgetown University Medical Center.

In the course of his clinical career, Dr. Dritschilo has treated more than 5,000 patients with cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, gastrointestinal tract, brain tumors and pediatric cancers. He has been instrumental in bringing state-of-the-art therapies and technologies to the hospital, including Proton Therapy with HYPERSCAN™, CyberKnife SRS and SBRT services. MedStar Georgetown was one of the first CyberKnife sites on the East Coast, leading to its current position as a national leader in volume, experience and expertise. MedStar Georgetown is the first hospital in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to offer proton therapy and the first in the world to offer proton therapy with HYPERSCAN™. 

Dr. Dritschilo is a prolific researcher, with a cumulative total of more than $20 million in NIH awards and nearly 250 peer-reviewed, published articles. He is a regular reviewer and editor for prominent scientific and medical publications, a sought-after presenter at national and international meetings and a frequent guest lecturer at medical schools around the county. The holder of a dozen US patents and diplomat of the American College of Radiology, Dr. Dritschilo received his medical degree from the College of Medicine of New Jersey followed by a residency in radiation therapy and a fellowship in radiation oncology at Harvard Medical School. After a brief stint at Tufts University-New England Medical Center, Dr. Dritschilo joined Georgetown in 1979.
