Lymphoma Specialists



Leonard Prosnitz, M.D.

Chairman and Professor Emeritus

Duke Department of Radiation Oncology
 

The contributions of Prosnitz to the field of radiation oncology and to Duke itself are far reaching and transformative. He was a pioneer in demonstrating the effectiveness of lumpectomy and radiation rather than mastectomy in early stage breast cancer treatment, a process now considered standard and offered to more than 100,000 women each year in the U.S. He also pioneered combination therapies of radiation and chemotherapy for malignant lymphomas and other cancers.  On the humanitarian front, Prosnitz helped to develop a modern cancer center and radiation therapy facility in Taiwan and was a leader in the creation of Caring House in Durham—a home that provides adult cancer patients and accompanying caregivers with a comfortable, supportive, and affordable place to stay during outpatient treatment at the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The area of my clinical research is on treatment outcome of patients diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I especially focus on treatment side effects and late effects of cancer therapy, including second malignancies, cardiopulmonary complications and quality of life of long-term survivors of lymphoma.
