Meet Dr. Zabi Wardak
Stereotactic Radiosurgery Specialist in Dallas

Zabi Wardak, M.D., specializes in the treatment of adult and pediatric brain and spine cancer with particular interests in Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) for:

  • High- and low-grade gliomas
  • Brain metastases
  • Meningioma
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Acoustic neuroma (also known as vestibular schwannoma)

Growing up, Dr. Wardak always aspired to be a surgeon and loved cutting-edge technology. In his free time he would frequently be found taking apart and putting back together cars and computers. “I’ve always been big on technology and computing,” he says. “Once I discovered that we could use radiosurgery to deliver noninvasive cancer treatment to patients and achieve similar outcomes as surgery, I knew this is what I wanted to devote my practice to.”

Radiation treatment technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, Dr. Wardak notes, adding, “Patients benefit not just from advanced treatment machines but from a skilled team that understands how to use that technology to its maximal potential.”

Dr. Wardak says his No. 1 priority is treating cancer aggressively. He points out that patients who have been diagnosed with cancer may have many life changes to deal with all at once, so it is vital that they feel their cancer is being handled by an experienced professional who is dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for them. 

“My philosophy of cancer treatment incorporates my own approach to whole-body wellness, which includes mental and nutritional health as well,” Dr. Wardak says. “I encourage patients to take care of themselves, and I do my best to take care of the rest.”
