One of his major achievements is the development of the Stereotatic Radiotherapy, which he developed during his thesis when he was completing his MD studies. The technique is increasingly becoming used today owing to the numerous advantages that are associated with it. One of its major strengths is the fact that it is very precise. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most precise forms of radiation therapies that are available today. It was specifically developed for the treatment of tumours, especially the small brain tumours as well as any functional abnormalities present within the brain. Today, this technique is being used widely for the treatment of brain abnormalities. The technique is still being developed for purposes of making it more effective. Currently, its level of precision lies within 2 mm of the tumour being targeted. With more research, it is likely that the technique’s level of precision is likely to be extended to anything below a millimetre.

The seven years that followed his completion of MD studies saw him shock the world. This was after he published his thesis in 2007 in partial fulfilment of his Ph.D thesis which he obtained from Paris-Sud University. The paper contained information pertaining to breast cancer in young patients.
