Dr. Douglas M. Coldwell is an internationally recognized expert in local regional therapy of cancer. He has pioneered numerous treatments for cancer, including the use of radioactive particles delivered through the arteries to treat tumors typically in the liver but which can be found anywhere. He was the first to use a probe that treats metastatic tumors in the spine by heating them with a bipolar radiofrequency ablation probe and then reinforcing the bone with cement to halt pain. The combination of radiofrequency ablation of the tumor and the reinforcing cement stabilizes the spine and allows improved quality of life.
After Dr. Coldwell received his BA and PhD in Materials Science from Rice University in Houston, TX, he had a stint teaching solid state physics and researching for Texas Instruments, Inc. He attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, performed his internship and residency at the Pennsylvania State University Medical School at Hershey, PA, and followed with his fellowship in Cancer Interventional Radiology at University of Texas System Cancer Center, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. He is Board Certified in both Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. Dr. Coldwell is a Fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology, the American College of Radiology, and the American Heart Association. He has been on numerous university faculties, frequently lectures internationally, and has authored over 100 peer reviewed papers.
