Cancer treatments have come a long way, leading to more people surviving their diagnosis. But while chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and other treatments have prolonged lives, they can also have negative impacts on the body, including neuropathy, a painful pins-and-needles sensation, and lymphedema, a severe swelling of a limb after surgery.

At Weill Cornell Medicine, our cancer musculoskeletal specialists aim to improve patients’ quality of life using a holistic, empathetic, and patient-centric approach. We use holistic cancer treatments (also called complementary or alternative cancer treatments) in conjunction with conventional treatments (such as chemotherapy and radiation) to address both the physical and emotional needs of our patients. 

Our cancer rehabilitation specialist focuses on bone, muscle, and nerve health, and works with oncologists, as well as physical and occupational therapists, to develop individualized treatment plans for patients.

Treatment at our state-of-the-art cancer center may involve:

• An anti-inflammatory diet

• Exercise regimens

• Holistic cancer treatments

• Medications

• Imaging tests (to look for the spread of cancer)

• Injections (administered with the help of an ultrasound for the most accurate placement)

You’re in good hands with our expert cancer rehabilitation specialist in New York City. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
