If you or a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis and a recommendation for radiation therapy, look to Carolyn Savioz, MD, for the expert care you need.
Expert Radiation Therapy for Cancer Treatment
Dr. Savioz, a board-eligible radiation oncologist at Avera Medical Group Radiation Oncology in Sioux Falls, SD, offers advanced radiation therapy treatment options, including:
- Gamma Knife
- Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
- Intraoperative breast irradiation
- Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)
Although Dr. Savioz treats all types of cancer, she has a particular interest in treating lung, head and neck, central nervous system, breast and gynecological cancers.
In addition, she is very interested in survivorship and equipping her patients to live active and healthy lives both during and after cancer treatment.
Dr. Savioz says that interacting with her patients is the best part of her job. “I learn so much from them about life – from hearing their stories and meeting their families too. I really enjoy that kind of interaction.”
She is also fluent in Korean.
In her free time, Dr. Savioz enjoys running, yoga, singing, playing the violin and piano, and spending time with family and friends. “My husband and I also love to entertain and have dinner parties,” she adds. “We’re learning a lot as we work on our culinary skills. Between my Asian heritage and his European and Mediterranean heritage, we like to try all kinds of foods.”
