Dusten MacDonald, MD, is a board-certified Radiation Oncologist with extensive
experience in Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). SBRT has many
palliative applications but is also a curative and non-invasive treatment
for early-stage lung cancer. This type of treatment has never before been
available on the north coast, and was not possible until The Dr. Russell
Pardoe Radiation Oncology Center at St. Joseph Hospital recently installed
two new Elekta Infinity Linear Accelerators.
Dr. MacDonald comes to us from Olympia, Washington, after completing residency
training at Washington University in St. Louis followed by eight years
of service in the US Army Medical Corps. In addition to having experience
treating a wide variety of malignancies, Dr. MacDonald has extensive research
experience, including recent presentations and publications regarding
breast cancer, urologic malignancies, and palliative radiation therapy.
We are very pleased with Dr. MacDonald’s decision to join us and
look forward to working together to continue to expand cancer care in
