Shahed Badiyan, M.D.
Meet Dr. Badiyan
UT Southwestern Medical Center’s lung cancer program includes a dedicated team that offers a level of expertise unmatched in Dallas and North Texas. We provide our patients with comprehensive, timely, and effective care.
Some of the most groundbreaking achievements in radiation therapy for lung cancer in the past decade have taken place at UT Southwestern. Our physicians have pioneered the use of stereotactic radiation to treat early-stage lung cancer, in some instances changing the medical standard of care for certain patient populations.
As one of the top academic medical centers in the country and the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in North Texas, we lead and participate in a number of clinical trials aimed at improving the outcomes of patients with cancer. The Department of Radiation Oncology enrolls approximately 200 new patients in clinical trials each year.
Clinical trials are critical in developing new therapies for cancer and can mean having access to new medication, groundbreaking research, and additional clinical care. Our clinical trials team is comprised of radiation oncologists, radiation biologists, clinical research coordinators, quality assurance coordinators, and clinical data specialists.
