Dr. Timothy Nichols has extensive experience with external beam radiation (IMRT, IGRT, 3D Conformal), and he specializes in Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Partial Breast Irradiation. Dr. Nichols is Board Certified in the field of Radiation Oncology by the American College of Radiology. A Dallas resident, Dr. Nichols earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Nichols served his residency in Radiation Oncology at the University of Maryland Medical Center, as well as receiving a Fellowship from that institution. He has most recently served as Radiation Oncologist at the Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, and earlier held the position of Medical Director at the Plano Oncology Center. He is a member of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, the American College of Radiology, the American Medical Association, the Texas Medical Association and the Dallas County Medical Society.
Radiation oncology is undergoing an explosion of new cutting edges techniques. Recently spending four years at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, Dr. Wilhelm Lubbe worked at a unique cancer only institution holding two Nobel Prize winners. At this world leading cancer treatment center, Dr. Lubbe has utilized some of the world’s most innovative emerging techniques. A Diplomat of the American Board of Radiology, Dr. Lubbe is a Board Certified Radiation Oncologist. This experience affords Dr. Lubbe the luxury of knowing the full extent of the advantages and limitations of each new technology and technique.
Holding two doctoral degrees, Dr. Lubbe was awarded a prestigious medical program where he received both a M.D. and Ph.D. at the same time. This was within a special program through Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. In addition to his clinical expertise, he obtained a Ph.D. in molecular cancer research. Beyond winning multiple awards in both medicine and cancer research, he has coauthored a United States patent for a molecular guided cancer therapy. This strategy activates the body’s own internal and environmental bio-mechanisms to inhibit cancer spread. His research on natural molecular cancer treatments and innovative radiation techniques have been presented at oncology meetings drawing a world wide audience.
Outside of work, Wilhelm enjoys a great variety of activities in the Dallas area. Of note, he was a NCAA Division I tennis player at Villanova University and received All-Conference distinctions as a pre-medical student athlete.
