Terry J. Styles, M.D. is a board-certified radiation oncologist at Oklahoma CyberKnife.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering with honors from Georgia Tech, Dr. Styles worked for two years with Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine and Miracles. She then attended Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, where she completed both medical school and a residency in radiation oncology. After six years in a multi-specialty private practice in Atlanta, the birth of a daughter and the desire to be near family took her to the Philadelphia area, where she served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology with the University of Pennsylvania Health System for five years. During her last two years at Penn, Dr. Styles focused on caring for breast cancer patients at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. At the same time, she pursued her interest in holistic health and completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona under the direction of Dr. Andy Weil and Dr. Victoria Maizes.
Dr. Styles brings not only her expertise in the latest radiation techniques to Oklahoma CyberKnife, but also her passion to integrate this technology with the care of the whole patient, including the use of complementary medicine in the prevention and treatment of cancer. She is a member of the American Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncologists and the Society of Integrative Oncology and has numerous publications and presentations regarding the use of Complementary Medicine in Oncology.
Growing up, Dr. Styles experienced a lot of cancer in her family, which influenced her decision to enter into the field of radiation oncology. In addition to helping people, she loves the engineering and technical aspects of her job.
When not working, Dr. Styles focuses her time and energy on her daughter, husband Mike, and dog Olive. She is fluent in Spanish, likes trying new food, loves physical activity including karate (she is second degree black belt in Kenpo/Krav Maga), weight training, sailing, and any other activity that she can do outside. On rare opportunities she enjoys lounging in a hammock with a good book!
