    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Braunstein is a radiation oncologist with a clinical interest in the treatment of pediatric, central nervous system, and soft tissue malignancies. He has expertise in modern radiation therapy techniques including stereotactic radiotherapy (Gamma Knife, Cyberknife, Linac-based SBRT), intraoperative radiotherapy, and intensity modulated radiation therapy.

    Dr. Braunstein earned his M.D. at New York University School of Medicine where he also obtained a Ph.D. studying essential molecular pathways by which cancer cells mediate response to radiation. He completed residency at UCSF in 2014, during which time he continued to study cancer cell response to radiation, investigating genetic polymorphisms which yield the observed heterogeneity of tumor cell population radiosensitivity and risk of radiation-related secondary cancer.
