Dr. Anand Kuruvilla, Radiation Oncologist, has been serving NE Florida communities for the past three decades. After completing his undergraduate studies in India, he spent two and half years in England where he commenced postgrad oncology training until he immigrated to the USA in 1982. He spent four years at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, earning an American post-grad degree in radiation oncology. He was chief resident during his final year. After attaining his board certification in therapeutic radiology, conferred by the American Board of Radiology in 1986, he was a consultant radiation oncologist and subsequently a partner with Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles, California, the largest HMO in the United States.
Dr. Kuruvilla was offered the Director of Radiation Oncology position at the Cancer Center of Putnam in 1991, the year the facility was opened and today is proud of the fact that the center has become a full-fledged cancer center, acknowledged by its peers in NE Florida to be second to none. Dr. Kuruvilla is the President of the Putnam Florida Radiation Oncology Group LLC, and in 2017 joined with the Hospital Corp of America (HCA) and the Integrated Oncology Network LLC (ION), to form a joint venture, the Putnam Radiation Oncology JV. This joint venture has invested significant capital to make the facility, the Cancer Center of Putnam, and its equipment state-of-the-art. The Cancer Center of Putnam was awarded Apex Certification in January of 2021, only the fifth facility in Florida to have attained this prestigious award by the American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO).
Dr. Kuruvilla has referred patients with a suspected or new cancer diagnosis. He evaluates and expedites appropriate Imaging and required workup to confirm the diagnosis, stage the extent of disease and expedite appropriate sub-specialist involvement. With multidisciplinary input, appropriate surgery, radiation treatment, and/or chemotherapy with the appropriate sub-specialists is possible.
Dr. Kuruvilla has an exemplary reputation amongst his peers and the community for his unique abilities to see and care for patients in record time by expediting the above processes in multiple ways based on his decades of experience. He appreciates your support and wants you to let him know if you need any help!
