Paramount Oncology Group was founded in 2011 when Dr. Bobby Koneru recognized that both university and community cancer care had gaps in applying process driven, breakthrough radiation treatments in a compassionate, personalized manner. Dr. Koneru applied his background as a Northwestern University Faculty member in Radiation Oncology, TEDx speaker and nationally recognized expert on Stereotactic Radiosurgery to form Paramount Oncology Group (POG) with the purpose of delivering world class cancer care within smaller communities. Paramount Oncology Group is driven to transform radiation delivery through collaborative POG pathways, a premier team of board certified experts and the latest treatment techniques.
