Physician Detail

Biography

As the Director of the Multiple Myeloma Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, my duties will focus on providing outstanding clinical care and coordinating a world class clinical translational research program. Prestigious investigators have joined forces to create one of the leading centers for myeloma research. I have no doubt that this cooperative effort forms one of the best myeloma research groups on the World. My 25 years of experience as a myeloma physician has helped me to appreciate how important it is to treat patients in the context of a comprehensive and individualized program. New York Presbyterian Hospital has an outstanding Bone Marrow Transplant Service (a treatment modality often used for myeloma patients), performing more than 100 transplants per year. It has also been rated the best in the world in the fields of cardiology (heart), neurosurgery and nephrology (kidney). The Hospital for Special Surgery, also part of the New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell system, has an outstanding group of orthopedic surgeons that support a new comprehensive bone disease program. In addition, as part of our continuing search for more effective therapeutic options, we offer multiple clinical trials utilizing promising new drugs and medical procedures for treating myeloma and related hematological disorders. The ultimate goal is to find the cure for multiple myeloma. The establishment of a free standing Multiple Myeloma Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center is an important step towards the accomplishment of this goal.
