Dr Nina Stewart
MBBS(Hons), FRANZCR, Radiation Oncologist
I aim to treat each individual patient using evidence based medicine, modern technology and advocacy to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Breast, neuro-oncology, palliative care and stereotactic radiation therapy
Special clinical interest in breast, neuro-oncology, palliative care and stereotactic radiation therapy.
Nina completed her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Western Australia (UWA) with honours in 2008 and began her medical career at Fremantle hospital followed by community programs in the Kimberley and in palliative care.
She commenced specialist training in radiation oncology at Prince of Wales Hospital (NSW) in 2014 and gained experience in stereotactic radiotherapy and paediatric oncology. This was followed by a clinical research fellowship in breast and central nervous system tumours at Fiona Stanley Hospital where Nina developed a treatment protocol to examine radiotherapy planning CT scans as a way of estimating a patient’s risk of future coronary artery disease.
Nina has been an examiner of medical students at UWA and UNSW and continues to lecture current radiation oncology trainees. She is also a member of the RANZCR palliative care working group and is a board certified lifestyle medicine practitioner.
Nina’s key clinical interests are breast and neuro-oncology, palliative care, stereotactic radiotherapy, value based health care, patient experience and outcome measures. She also has a keen interest in the benefits of integrative medicine.
