On September 28th, the Grand Atrium of the Presidential Circle Building in Hollywood was aglow in Pink and Purple to celebrate two milestones with the help of Morton's of Chicago catering, the 25th anniversary of Dr. Robert Donoway practicing world class Cancer Surgery in South Florida and the announcement of the opening of Atlas Oncology - the Institute for Advanced Pancreatic and Liver Cancer Ablation.
Speaking to an audience of 150 physicians and colleagues Dr Donoway, a native of Philadelphia moved to South Florida in 1990 and he has remained here ever since. Having completed his medical education, surgical training and oncologic fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center he has been a prolific fixture of our oncologic community, serving as Director of several area Cancer Centers and served on the Boards of numerous organizations such American Cancer Society and Gilda's Club. Dr Donoway identified the many "firsts" he had introduced here but was especially proud of the sentinel lymph node mapping for Breast Cancer he introduced in 1995 and Ablation for Liver tumors in 1992. His dedication to providing personalized cancer care has been a hallmark of his career, By bringing advanced techniques, such as the NanoKnife for the treatment of Pancreatic, Liver and other advanced Cancers, which is available through Atlas Oncology he feels will make a significant difference in patient outcomes. Dr Donoway introduced the NanoKnife over 4 years ago and currently has the largest international experience, drawing patients from all over the US, South America, the Caribbean, Hawaii and even Asia.
In receiving the 20 inch swaroksy crystal award for Service Dr. Donoway was ever so proud of the many thousands of cancer patients he has had the privilege to treat and the doctors he has served. He concluded by saying...." It is my hope that by continuing to push with more technologically advanced options for cancers once felt to be untreatable that more lives can be extended and saved. The mission and vision of Atlas Oncology is to provide HOPE where patients have been misinformed."
For more information about the NanoKnife and its uses please contact the office of Dr. Robert Donoway at 954-986-6366 and asking specifically for Kathryn Anderson, Practice Administrator.
