Biography

Veronica Chiang, MD, a neurosurgeon and director of the Gamma Knife Center at Yale Medicine, specializes in treating metastatic cancer using radiosurgery. This technique allows doctors to transmit radiation directly to tumor cells and avoid radiating healthy brain cells, which can help improve patients’ quality of life after treatment.

Dr. Chiang acknowledges that brain surgery can be a big step for patients and provides as much information about the procedure as possible. “Knowledge helps people deal with how scary it might feel,” she says.

In addition to treating patients, Dr. Chiang conducts research on managing patient care through multidisciplinary approaches, and how technologies like thermocoagulation and radiosurgery can help patients with brain metastases. “The neurological system is one of the last areas where there’s very little known about it. I love learning about it and figuring out how to improve patient’s lives,” she says.
