Dr. Ragab completed his residency training as chief resident in radiation oncology at LAC+USC Medical Center in Los Angeles. He received his medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine of USC and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Neuroscience from the University of Southern California, graduating magna cum laude. Dr. Ragab recently completed his fellowship training in clinical brachytherapy at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in June 2016 under the mentorship of Dr. Jeffrey Demanes. Dr. Ragab's research interests include gynecologic cancers and brachytherapy treatment programs.
Dr. Ragab provides clinical services for GI cancer, GYN cancer, and Sarcoma and is developing a brachytherapy program for multiple disease sites at Keck Medical Center of USC and LAC+USC Medical Center. He is focused and dedicated in his expert management of patients diagnosed with gynecological cancers. He is highly recognized for his easy-going personality, exemplary skill, knowledge, and work ethic. He provides top level care in gynecologic oncology involving state of the art intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) techniques, as well as traditional but highly effective intra-cavitary brachytherapy procedures.
