Testicular Cancer Services at Mount Sinai
Because testicular cancer is a less common type of cancer and has many treatment options, Mount Sinai has assembled a multidisciplinary team of specialists who work together to customize the best treatment plan for each patient. Our experts in Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology, and Urology collaborate to optimize the chances of curing this disease while minimizing the risk of long-term complications from therapy. Our specialists’ home within the medical center also means that patients can see multiple physicians in the same day for the most efficient and effective care.
Specializing in Testicular Cancer
Due to our expertise in testicular cancer, Mount Sinai physicians are skilled in providing advanced treatment options not available everywhere. For example, surgical procedures such as retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (removal of the lymph nodes at the back of the abdomen) may not be performed by a community-based urologist, whereas our surgeons have extensive experience with the procedure. Our medical oncology team is experienced in the use of the chemotherapy regimens for more difficult to treat testicular cancers that don’t respond well to initial treatment.
Providing Comprehensive Care
Our testicular cancer specialists are committed to not only treating the disease, but administering therapies with the highest regard for our patients’ overall well being. In the case of chemotherapy, for example, we do everything possible to manage side effects and create a convenient schedule in order to minimize the impact of treatment on work and daily activities. For patients concerned about the possible impact of treatment on fertility, we offer counseling regarding options such as sperm banking.
With an expert team specializing in testicular cancer and advanced treatment options, Mount Sinai’s testicular cancer services strive to ensure that each of our patients achieves the greatest possible quality of life.
