Nestled in the scenic city of Winter Park, under the guidance of Dr. David Buser, Winter Park Oncology, has been a local symbol of excellence in cancer treatment. Dr. Buser, uniquely dual-trained in OB/GYN and radiation oncology, has dedicated his career to providing the highest quality of conventional radiotherapy. His exceptional expertise, especially in women’s health, has set a benchmark in patient care and treatment efficacy.

The center’s journey takes a remarkable turn this year with the arrivals of Dr. Evan Thomas and Dr. Pantaleo Romanelli. Dr. Thomas, a world leader in brain & spine radiation oncology, beyond offering the fastest & most efficient treatments for brain tumors also harbors particular expertise in noninvasive treatments of neurological disorders such as essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease. He also is one of the few radiation physicians in the world to offer non-invasive ablation for ventricular tachycardia.

Dr. Romanelli, a brilliant Italian neurosurgeon, specializing in non-invasive stereotactic radiosurgery, has made remarkable strides in his world-leading experience treating debilitating conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia, epilepsy, and other pain disorders. Most recently, he is known for inventing a non-invasive, incision-less treatment for spasticity from spinal cord injury, stroke, and cerebral palsy. 

Their collaboration with Dr. Buser is more than fortuitous; it is a confluence of vision and expertise. Together, they envisioned creating a center that would not only continue the legacy of high-standard care established by Dr. Buser but also push the boundaries of medical technology and treatment methods.

This vision led to the transformation of Winter Park Oncology into a part of the Renaissance Institute of Precision Radiotherapy and Neuromodulation. With an investment of $10 million, the center is being reborn as the most advanced freestanding radiotherapy center in the country, integrating the latest in precision radiotherapy & radiosurgery equipment & techniques. Also, featuring the latest in imaging excellence, the center will offer the latest in 3T MRI & high-resolution CT imaging.

The Renaissance Institute is more than a medical facility. It’s a place where technology, expertise, and patient-centric care come together to offer new possibilities in cancer treatment and neurological care.

This story of Winter Park Oncology, now part of the Renaissance Institute, is a testament to the power of collaborative vision, advanced technology, and dedicated care. It’s a narrative of a center rooted in excellence, led by doctors with unparalleled expertise and commitment, reshaping the landscape of cancer treatment and radiosurgery.
