Dr. Jared Sturgeon became a radiation oncologist after working closely with cancer patients during his medical school training at University of Minnesota Twin Cities. He completed his training in radiation oncology in Texas and after his residency, completed a fellowship in proton therapy under the direction of medical director, Dr. Andrew Lee, at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Dr. Sturgeon accepted his first position at the Karamanos McLaren Proton Therapy Center in Flint, Mich. The draw of returning to Texas was too great, and in 2015 Dr. Sturgeon relocated his family to the lone star state to join the team at Texas Center for Proton Therapy.
Dr. Sturgeon’s clinical research interests include proton toxicity outcomes, advanced imaging and human reproducibility, and cancer population etiologies. He is interested in medical education and created an online database to help residents pass their medical boards.
Dr. Sturgeon has a special interest in treating breast, head and neck, pediatric, and lung cancers. He is passionate about working closely with patients as they undergo cancer therapy. Dr. Sturgeon understands that every person and cancer is unique and works hard to ensure that each patient receives high quality care.
