Welcome to Columbus Cancer Care. Dr. Joan Keit has been practicing Radiation Oncology since 1994, helping cancer patients become survivors. Dr. Keit strongly believes in the value of every person that walks into her cancer centers. Compassionate care is at the core of her mission, her values and her patient centered care which drove her to create Columbus Cancer Care in 2011.

Dr. Keit is committed to providing state of the art care for her patients. This is easily seen in the treatment options she is able to provide her patients. She is the only physician in the state of Nebraska who is able to provide prostate high dose rate brachytherapy (see Treatment Options), a potentially curative treatment option for men battling prostate cancer. Dr. Keit was also the first physician to specialize in TomoTherapy® treatment system in the state of Nebraska and is currently the only physician with this treatment option in Nebraska.

Dr. Keit has been recognized as "Best Doctor in America" since 2005. The recipients of this award are elected by their peers and represent the top 5% of physicians across the United States. The "Best Doctor in America" recipient undergoes rigorous review of licensure, board certifications, and malpractice incidents and is evaluated in their area of expertise. Dr. Keit feels as though receiving this prestigious award, over the past consecutive years, has been one of the highlights of her career.

During her 11 years of practice in Nebraska, Dr. Keit has treated many patients, who without access to radiation within their community, were forced to drive hours to daily treatments. The sacrifices that these patients and families made both inspired and saddened Dr. Keit. This was the driving force behind her desire to bring radiation therapy to cancer patients within outlying communities. Dr. Keit purchased a plot of land of which she hoped would one day be able to serve the Columbus community. In January 2011, this dream has become reality with the opening of Columbus Cancer Care and offering TomoTherapy to patients within Columbus and surrounding cities.


Being scared is natural.
But so is fighting.
We can't promise it will be easy,
but we're trying to help.
We use a revolutionary system that
provides the most accurate and precise
Radiation Therapy available for cancer treatment.
It's called TomoTherapy
and it effectively delivers radiation where it is needed and
minimizes exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.

Be Hopeful... We Are.


Joan Keit, MD FACRO
