I finished my Medical studies at the Faculty of General Medicine of Semmelweis University in 1995. I completed my specialist training in surgery at the Institut Jules Bordet (Jules Bordet Institute for Oncology) in Brussels, and my specialist training in gynaecology at the St. Thomas’ Hospital in London.
Since 1997, I work at the Centre of Radiotherapy at the National Institute of Oncology.
2004: radiation therapy specialist
2007: clinical oncologist specialist
Since 2007, I am section head of the X-ray therapy unit
I am a member of the Hungarian Society of Radiotherapy, the Hungarian Society of Oncologists, the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO), and the Paediatric Radiation Oncology Society (PROS). I participate in the work of the National Institute of Oncology’s committee on gynaecology and dermatology and I am consultant of the Semmelweis University’s 2nd Department of Pediatrics’ committee on oncology.
My main field of interest is radiation therapy of gynaecological cancers. In 2016, we were the first in Hungary to work with Image Guided Brachytherapy in treating advanced cervical cancer at our Institute, which allows for individual dose distribution. With the help of this innovative method, we achieved that 83% of our patients whose advanced cervical cancers were considered inoperable before, are now locally tumour-free.
I attach particular importance to the radiation treatment of paediatric cancers. I treat my paediatric patients in close cooperation with the Semmelweis University’s 2nd Department of Pediatrics and the Heim Pál’s Children’s Hospital’s Department of Paediatric Oncology, taking into account the latest international guidelines.
As head of the X-ray therapy unit and member of the onco-dermatological committee, I focus a lot on the radiation therapy of different skin cancers (basal-cell carcinoma, melanoma). In addition, we also treat a big number of rheumatic patients with our X-ray therapy devices, treating calcaneus exostosis or different types of arthritis, because in the case of such illnesses, a small dose of radiation therapy can be a very efficient pain relief.
