About Radiation Oncology at The Mount Sinai Hospital
The radiation oncologists at The Mount Sinai Hospital are trained in a wide variety of disease site specific subspecialties to better serve our patients. We merge the most advanced technology with some of the most experienced professionals in the field to offer state-of-the-art treatment options. We are meeting the future of cancer care with innovation and confidence in our ability to stand on the forefront of research, education, and compassionate patient support.
During treatment, we strive to make our patients as physically and emotionally comfortable as possible. We understand that the journey back to good health, after receiving a cancer diagnosis, can be difficult, even frightening. That is what motivates us to ensure that our patients are well informed about their disease, their options, and all possible outcomes.
Our clinical staff includes a carefully selected team of nurses, medical physicists, dosimetrists, and therapists who all do their part to ensure that every treatment is accurate and safe. We offer consultations with a nutritionist who will provide patients with information and suggestions about their dietary needs during and after treatment. Also, a licensed clinical social worker is available to help counsel patients and caregivers through the inevitable emotions and life changes that accompany cancer treatments.
