    Board Certified in Radiation Oncology

Dr. Stephen Rosenberg specializes in treating lung cancer, mesothelioma, pancoast tumors and thymoma.

He personalizes his radiation therapy with a novel approach that often decreases side effects and improves control of local tumors.

Rosenberg combines radiation with immunomodulatory drugs and targeted therapies. He has spent considerable time researching the effectiveness of MRI-guided radiation therapy.

As part of his research efforts, he has studied the utilization of radiomics and genomics. His work is part of the Future of Radiation Therapy program at Moffitt, which is designed to increase the effectiveness of personalized treatment.

Published Author on Cancer Treatment

Rosenberg authored the book “Cancer What You Need to Know: Overcome the 10 Common Mistakes Patients Make.”

One of his goals with the book was to take issues surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of cancer — particularly the medical terms and concepts — and make them easier to understand.

The book stemmed from a previous study he did that examined the websites of National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Centers and demonstrated their lack of readability by the general public.

“What we found looking at the information was that it was at a level that most people could not understand,” Rosenberg said. “There was a big disconnect between what we should be presenting to patients, what they can understand, versus what we’re actually writing for patients.”

At Moffitt, he works with a multidisciplinary team of mesothelioma specialists, all with experience in treating this rare cancer typically caused by exposure to asbestos.
