Oncologists in the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology represent a group of highly specialized and trained physicians dedicated to the care and treatment of cancer, including: breast, colorectal, stomach, kidney, liver, leukemia, lymphoma, melanoma, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), multiple myeloma, pancreatic, prostate, and sarcoma. From initial diagnosis to follow-up care, patients are seen for consultations, second opinions and treatment at all stages of the disease.
Our colleagues at Mount Sinai provide specialty care in surgical oncology, radiation oncology, pain and palliative care, as well as behavioral medicine. It is convenient for our oncologists to provide referrals to on-campus physicians in medical subspecialties such as cardiology, gastroenterology, organ transplant, rheumatology, or pulmonology, should the need exist.
Our oncologists also offer access to genetic testing and counseling for patients at high risk of breast and colon cancer. This service helps identify individuals who may need intensive monitoring for the early detection of cancer. And our patients benefit from special access to resources available at Mount Sinai, including volunteer support groups, physical therapy, and social services.
We believe that through a vigorous commitment to patient care, education and research, Mount Sinai's oncologists in partnership with patients and their families can meet patients' needs at every phase of treatment while making important medical contributions to the over-all understanding of cancer, and its eventual cure.
