Chris O’Brien Lifehouse radiation oncologist Nitya Patanjali, MD confirmed that the hospital’s stereotactic radiosurgery team strives to go above and beyond standard measurements for quality care delivery. “Patients can take comfort knowing that we’ve undertaken the Novalis certification, demonstrating that all of our medical and professional staff and equipment are operating at a very high level of competency and expertise.”

When faced with researching radiotherapy options for cancer treatment, patients can rest assured that Novalis Certified confirms a key measurement for safety and treatment quality. Novalis Certified is an independent accreditation program that promotes a very high standard of efficacy and safety for stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy treatments. The audit is based on the Novalis Standard, which focuses on best practice clinical and technical protocols and procedures as well as robust quality assurance. The Novalis Standard is based on continual self-assessment and quality improvement, peer-review, and on international standards and publications of various radiation oncology organizations.

“We’ve treated nearly 1,000 patients in our Novalis Radiosurgery Program,” said neurosurgeon, Benjamin Jonker, MD. “We have a great responsibility to our patients and their families to not only invest in advanced technology, but to also invest in the 360-degree review of its implementation and utilization. We underwent an external validation of our processes and systems to identify any potential for improvement or efficiencies and to demonstrate objectively that our program is at the forefront of modern stereotactic radiosurgery practice. We found the audit valuable and objective as well as collaborative.”
