In his radiation oncology practice, Dr. Ferris has broad clinical interests that include treatment for most malignant and non-malignant tumors and the use of advanced radiation techniques.

He strives to work closely with the entire treatment team, including surgery and medical oncology colleagues, to offer cutting-edge and tailored treatment for each patient. He prizes meticulousness and attention to detail throughout each patient's course of radiation therapy.

One of the main focuses in his practice at UM Upper Chesapeake is to bring the availability of world-class cancer treatment options, including clinical trials and specialized radiation techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy, proton therapy, and brachytherapy, to the residents of Harford County.

His clinical research has resulted in numerous peer-reviewed publications and has yielded oral presentations at national and international conferences. Dr. Ferris' ongoing research is focused on optimizing advanced radiation techniques to maximize control of malignancies while sparing side effects and improving long-term patient-reported outcomes.
