Healthcare Leadership 2013 Award Winner: Dr. Robert Kuske
The editorial department of AZ Business Magazine scrutinized hundreds of nominations before deciding on the winners and finalists who are recognized with 2013 Healthcare Leadership Awards. Our very own Dr. Robert Kuske is the pioneer of breast brachytherapy, a five-day radiation therapy alternative for women with early stage breast cancer and won in the Researcher Category.
Brachytherapy, or partial breast irradiation, has been studied by Kuske since 1991 as a treatment method after lumpectomy. He is co-principle investigator in the largest breast cancer radiation trial in history, testing six-week whole breast radiation versus brachytherapy. Kuske is within a year of finishing the trial and believes the results will cause the biggest paradigm shift in breast cancer treatment since Sir William Halsted in 1896.
