Dr. Baschnagel is a radiation oncologist and assistant professor in the Department of Human Oncology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, WI. He specializes in treating patients with lung, esophageal and other thoracic malignancies. He also has experience in performing stereotactic body radiotherapy and intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of brain, spine and liver metastases. He is actively involved in UW Multidisciplinary Thoracic Program and works closely with thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pulmonologists and radiologists to best meet the needs of our patients. In addition to patient care, he is actively involved in translational and clinical research at the regional and national level.
