Jeffrey Kittel, M.D.
Jeffrey Kittel grew up in Connecticut as the child of two Midwestern transplants. He attended Amherst College, then worked for two years in health care consulting before attending Washington University in St. Louis for medical school. He then completed residency at Cleveland Clinic in 2016, and returned to his midwest roots, joining Radiation Oncology Associates to practice medicine in Wisconsin.
His primary clinical focus is on head and neck and thoracic cancers. His practice includes definitive radiation with or without chemotherapy, neoadjuvant or adjuvant radiation (before or after a planned surgery), as well as SBRT. He also treats a significant number of prostate cancers, including prostate SBRT with CyberKnife and brachytherapy. He regularly treats many other types of cancer as well. Dr. Kittel has a strong interest in quality initiatives. He is the Chair of the Aurora Health System Head and Neck Cancer Quality Committee. He is the Chair of the SBRT Quality Committee and the Director of the SBRT Radiosurgery program at St. Luke’s. He serves on the Thoracic Cancer Quality Committee. He is a regular member of the tumor board conferences for the Thoracic, Head and Neck, and Genitourinary cancer groups. In addition, he regularly sees patients together with Medical Oncologists and surgeons at our Thoracic, Head and Neck, and Genitourinary multidisciplinary clinics. Together, these teams serve some of the highest volumes of cancer patients in their respective specialties in the state.
“I believe that every patient is different and every cancer is unique. What works for one patient may not work for another patient. I believe in meeting patients where they are while applying the latest research and most innovative techniques to maximize the chance of a meaningful outcome while minimizing the risk of side-effects. I promise that you will leave my clinic feeling like you were heard, that you were given the information you needed, and knowing that we made a plan together that fits your goals.”
