Dr. Dorai is a neurosurgeon with advanced training in brain and spinal tumors. Dr. Dorai earned her degree in medicine from the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Her post-graduate work includes a fellowship in neurosurgical oncology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, specializing in the surgical treatment of brain and spinal tumors. Dr. Dorai is a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, including the tumor section. Her clinical specialty interests include degenerative spine disease, brain and spinal cord tumors, and surgery for epilepsy disorders. She is also trained in CyberKnife® radiosurgery.
Dr. Dorai treats tumors using the CyberKnife® at Sinai Hospital, the only hospital in Maryland to offer this technology. The CyberKnife® precisely locates the position of a tumor in the body and uses a high-energy X-ray source, mounted on a robotic arm, to deliver highly focused beams of radiation to the tumor. This targeted technique allows the maximum amount of radiation to reach the tumor while preventing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. It gives physicians the ability to treat multiple tumors and lesions, some of which may have been diagnosed as inoperable, without making a single incision.
