Kenneth Russell, M.D.

Professor

Overview

Dr. Russell is a radiation oncologist who specializes in treating patients with genitourinary tumors particularly prostate and bladder cancers, and hematological malignancies, including plasma cell neoplasms, and Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. He is the University of Washington Department of Radiation Oncology program and disease site lead for genitourinary cancers. Dr. Russell practices at SCCA, UWMC, and SCCA Proto Therapy Center.

Patient Care Philosophy

“Patients should expect and should receive top care, both technical and personal, from a top team. I believe we meet these expectations in Radiation Oncology at UW Medical Center, SCCA, and SCCA Proton Therapy.”
