Michael Confer, MD is a radiation oncologist at Norman Regional Health System. Diseases he treats and procedures he performs include:

  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for early-stage and oligometastatic patients
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for treatment of brain tumors
  • Benign and malignant brain tumors
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Sarcoma

Dr. Confer said that even before starting medical school, he knew he wanted to be part of a cancer-fighting team to help patients through one of the most challenging times of their lives.

“I chose radiation oncology because I love personalizing each patient's treatment plan based on diagnosis, staging, and anatomy,” Dr. Confer said.

He said his patients can expect a listening ear and complete explanations.

“I have seen that well-informed patients are better able to overcome great challenges,” Dr. Confer said. “I also think laughter is still great medicine, so I try to incorporate smiles and humor as much as I can.”

Dr. Confer loves to cook, grill and bake. On the weekends he enjoys family bike rides and being outdoors. He speaks Mandarin Chinese, which he learned as a missionary. Dr. Confer’s favorite treat is ice cream and he especially likes the last bit of melted ice cream at the bottom of the bowl!
