Dr. Ralph Weichselbaum, in conjunction with Dr. Samuel Hellman, has pioneered the treatment of potentially curative treatment of oligometastases with radiotherapy. Based on the observation that not all breast cancer may be widely metastatic at initial presentation, Dr. Samuel Hellman advanced our understanding of the natural history of metastasis through proposal of a spectrum hypothesis, with some breast cancers remaining locoregionally confined, others being metastatic at presentation, and some progressing from locoregional confinement to metastatic. Soon thereafter, Hellman and Weichselbaum described the clinically relevant oligometastatic state, where metastases are limited in number and destination organ, and where long-term disease control may be achievable with metastasis-directed therapy.
