Dr. Stryker

My name is Dr. Jeanne Stryker. I am a board certified interventional radiologist oncologist. I started my medical career as a RN at UCSD San Diego in labor and delivery. I realized early on that being a nurse was going to be my first step to becoming a doctor. That came to reality when I completed my medical degree at Albany Medical College in 1992. In addition, I have done:

  • —Diagnostic radiology residency at Dartmouth.
  • —Pediatric radiology at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
  • —Fellowships in Women's Imaging and Vascular & Interventional Radiology at Medical University of South Carolina.

The best part of my practice is getting to destroy cancer. It’s truly my passion. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Thank you for visiting my website. I am here to help you Stryke Back at cancer.

Stryker MD  >  Step 1: Starve The Tumor by Cutting Off Its Blood Supply

Embolization

A tumor cannot grow without a blood or nutrient supply. It is believed that a tumor mass cannot exist in a volume greater than the tip of a ballpoint pen without a proper blood or nutrient supply.

An Embolization procedure is the process of inserting a thin tube, the diameter size of a spaghetti noodle, called a catheter, into the artery to discover the blood vessels feeding the tumor. Then a small amount of a chemotherapy or immunotherapy drug is dispensed directly into the blood vessels feeding the tumor. This is followed by placing small blocking particles into those same blood vessels, closing off the blood supply. Finally, platinum coils are inserted to lock the door.

This procedure can be performed multiple times to achieve the desired response within the tumor. The goal is to create a chronic dormant state and to shrink the tumor.

Three to four weeks after Embolization, the second step, Cryoablation occurs.
