Dr Mario Guerrieri has been part of Radiation Oncology Victoria (ROV) since 2004 and GenesisCare since it amalgamated (with ROV) in 2011. Mario has developed subspecialist interests mainly in the area of pelvic malignancies (prostate cancer and rectal cancer), breast cancer and thoracic malignancies. He works closely with surgeons and oncologists in these cancer streams to deliver personalised, state of the art care in these common but complex malignancies. He is closely aligned with and attends the multidisciplinary meetings at Western Health, Australian Urology Associates (AUA) and the Australian Prostate Centre.
He was instrumental in setting up radiation therapy services in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne for the treatment of prostate cancer in 2008. In the search to continue to drive success rates and reduce toxicity for prostate cancer treatment, he has implemented intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), subsequently volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and then image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) using implanted fiducial markers and SpaceOAR. This has only been possible with close collaboration with local urologists. Working closely with his breast surgical colleagues, Mario has also helped introduce a radiotherapy protocol to optimise breast cancer local control rates and improve cosmetic and patient reported outcomes in those women requiring a mastectomy and reconstruction. Mario has also been active in the development and delivery of stereotactic radiation therapy at our Cabrini Malvern and Footscray centre for the treatment of prostate, colorectal and early lung cancers. Mario consults at Cabrini Malvern, Western Private Hospital Footscray, St Vincent’s Hospital Fitzroy, and St Vincent’s Private Hospital Werribee
