Approach To Care

Dr. Gits completed medical school at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. A Minnesota native, he returned to the Twin Cities to provide care for the community he loves. He trained in residency at the University of Minnesota and was selected as Chief Resident during his final year. In these roles, he developed relationships with renowned physicians locally and nationally, gaining experience at the forefront of a changing field.

As a radiation oncologist, Dr. Gits is experienced in treating patients with wide variety of cancers, using the latest techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), brachytherapy, and others. During each new patient encounter, he reviews the latest evidence and research to provide options and to deliver the highest quality care. Dr. Gits builds relationships with patients and strives to empower them to understand their cancer treatment.
