Peter Rossi, MD
Radiation Oncologist
Calaway-Young Cancer Center
Valley View Hospital, Glenwood Springs, CO

Areas of expertise: Prostate brachytherapy

I have a comprehensive and active clinic in Radiation Oncology at the Calaway-Young Cancer Center at Valley View, specializing in the multi-disciplinary daily management of cancer patients with a broad range of malignancies. I have expertise in innovative technologies, brachytherapy, radiopharmaceuticals, advanced external beam radiotherapy, clinical research and integrative oncology. To best serve our patients, I work closely with medical oncology and surgical oncology colleagues. My primary research focuses are genitourinary cancers and advanced and innovative technologies, including: LDR and HDR brachytherapy, stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and radiosurgery (SRS).  Additionally, I study the quality of life in cancer survivors, with a focus of improving the side effect profile of treatment. I am a board member of the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) and past Chairman of corporate relations committee and corporate advisory board for the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
