(September 9, 2015 – Sarasota, FL) Joseph M. Kaminski, MD, has joined the staff at Dattoli Cancer Center, an internationally known prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment center based in Sarasota, Florida (www.dattoli.com).
Kaminski, a board certified Radiation Oncologist, comes to the Center from his recent post at the Medical College of Georgia, Georgia Regents University, where he served as associate professor and co-leader of the Neurological Oncology Multidisciplinary Program.
Kaminski is the first physician addition to the Dattoli Center in its 15-year history. Dr. Dattoli pioneered prostate brachytherapy (radioactive seed implant) nearly three decades ago, and he has selected Kaminski as the first physician that he will personally mentor in his highly successful prostate brachytherapy technique. Dr. Dattoli published the longest prostate cancer cure rate study in 2010, which has never been eclipsed.
In announcing Kaminski’s appointment, Michael Dattoli, MD, who founded the Center with partner Richard Sorace, MD, PhD, said, “We are excited about bringing a physician of Dr. Kaminski’s stature to our practice. His background and experience meshes well with our academic philosophies, and he will bring new dimensions to our ground-breaking research and clinical treatment programs.”
After graduating with highest honors from Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the nation’s top bioengineering universities, Kaminski completed medical school at the Medical College of Georgia, residencies in nuclear medicine and radiation oncology at Vanderbilt University Medical School (Nashville, Tennessee), and a radiation oncology residency at the prestigious Fox Chase Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
Upon completion of his medical education, Kaminski joined the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. At NCI, he is renowned for his work to accelerate the development of cancer therapeutics, including normal tissue radioprotectors/mitigators, imaging techniques, and important interventional devices. In addition, he served as lead medical officer in several capacities at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. He also served as a consultant to Varian Medical Systems, which manufactures high-end linear accelerators used for radiation treatments.
Kaminski has authored more than 70 peer-reviewed publications, and he served on the editorial board of the International Journal of Low Radiation.
His wife and two daughters have joined him in Sarasota.
