Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a complex cancer that is best treated by experienced physicians who see multiple myeloma patients every day and understand the nuances of the disease. Our multiple myeloma service in Brooklyn, part of Mount Sinai’s Center of Excellence for Multiple Myeloma, offers a full array of diagnostics and comprehensive treatment options.

We use a multidisciplinary approach that incorporates experts in specialties such as Pathology, Radiology, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases. Working together, we customize a treatment plan based on your disease characteristics, risk factors, and personal preference.

Cesar Rodriguez, MD, is our multiple myeloma specialist at Mount Sinai Brooklyn. Dr. Rodriguez is Associate Professor of Medicine (Hematology and Medical Oncology) and Clinical Director of Multiple Myeloma at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Rodriguez is fluent in English, French, and Spanish.

Conditions We Treat

Our Mount Sinai Brooklyn multiple myeloma service treats patients with:

  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MGUS)
  • Smoldering Myeloma

Both MGUS and smoldering myeloma are considered precursor conditions, as they can develop over time into active myeloma. We have a special clinic for patients with these conditions at our Mount Sinai Hospital location. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Rodriguez will determine whether it might be appropriate for you to be followed at the Multiple Myeloma Precursor Clinic.

Services We Provide

We provide a complete diagnostic work up for each patient that includes assessment of risk factors based on laboratory test results, bone marrow biopsy, and genetic profiling. This allows us to create a personalized treatment plan. Treatment may include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Immunomodulatory agents
  • Proteasome inhibitors
  • Monoclonal antibodies

We also offer access to emerging treatments through clinical trials.
