Dr. Hirsch has a particular interest and expertise in the treatment of breast cancer as well as the integration of natural approaches with conventional cancer treatment. In addition, she is very interested in the use of Cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) to treat primary lung and prostate cancer, benign and malignant brain tumors, and solitary metastasis to brain, spine, and liver. She is experienced in the use of conformal 3-D therapy, intensity modulated therapy (IMRT), and low and high dose rate brachytherapy. Dr. Hirsch is involved in breast cancer awareness programs, community and is active in Medical Education. She has written papers and lectured on various cancer topics. When asked why she chose Radiation Oncology she states, "When in medical school, I became involved in the care of a young woman hospitalized with breast cancer. This experience led me to understand the depth of relationships possible between patients, their families, and their physicians. The combination of scientific stimulation and progress with human interaction is what attracts me to this field."
