Services and Treatments

The Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care provides diagnosis and treatment of all types and stages of cancer. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan coordinated by a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists, radiologists and oncology surgeons.

We use the most innovative treatments, based on the translational research of Montefiore Medical Center and its university partner, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and in all cases, we implement the least invasive solutions.

Advanced Cancer Surgery and Therapeutic Services

Our physicians and researchers use the most advanced technology and most ground-breaking surgical and diagnostic techniques in cancer care, including:

  • Minimally invasive surgeries for the treatment of tumors and improved palliation
  • Robotic surgery for cancers, such as prostate, urologic, thoracic and ovarian
  • Outpatient laparoscopic surgery
  • Lumpectomy/mastectomy and reconstructive surgery
  • Radiation therapy, such as RapidArc® technology, radiofrequency ablation, Calypso GPS regional therapy and image-guided radiation therapy
  • Chemo-, immuno- and gene therapies
  • Regional perfusion therapies
  • Radiation treatment and surgery for children with cancer
  • Diagnostic testing, such as CAT, mammogram, ultrasound, MRI and 4D CAT
  • Transplantation
  • Reconstructive surgery

Convenient Inpatient and Outpatient Procedures

The Center for Cancer Care provides inpatient diagnostic, radiation treatment and surgery. Our team of surgical, radiation and medical oncologists, along with radiologists, patient navigators and other support staff, coordinates all aspects of patient care to ensure patients receive the most effective and consistent treatment. Consultations with our oncologists are available through the referral of primary care physicians.

For the convenience of our patients, our staff coordinates the scheduling of appointments, so patients can see multiple specialists during one visit, rather than needing to make several appointments.

Outpatient procedures are also available at the Moses Division and Montefiore Medical Park for laparoscopic surgery, precision radiation and chemotherapy, enabling our patients to receive convenient, exceptional cancer treatment, and return to their lives as quickly as possible.

From diagnostic imaging to post-surgery follow-up visits, our oncologists work with patients to ensure they receive exceptional care tailored to their individual needs.
