Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Cardiology Service is one of the world’s leading programs devoted exclusively to the management of cardiovascular diseases in cancer patients. The many facets of this program share a common goal: To facilitate the delivery of optimal cancer therapy in patients who are at risk for or who have existing heart disease. Careful communication with other members of the MSK treatment team — including oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, radiation therapists, and medical subspecialists — makes this possible. On a practical level, this effort reduces the risk of cancer patients developing heart disease, and allows more patients who have both cancer and heart disease to safely receive the optimal therapy for their cancer.
MSK’s Pulmonary Service is dedicated to patient care, research, and training. The outpatient Pulmonary Service is among the busiest subspecialties within MSK’s Division of Subspecialty Medicine. The service treats both internal referrals and patients who are new to MSK. Our busy inpatient service consists of three teams, one of which is procedural. Inpatient consults include all types of patients who have pulmonary problems associated with cancer, as well as other pulmonary disorders that are not unique to the cancer patient population. The procedural team performs bronchoscopies (both rigid and flexible) and pleural procedures, including thoracentesis, placement of all types of chest tubes, and interpleural installations. The Pulmonary Service is also responsible for managing patients who are chronically ventilated, including weaning these patients from mechanical ventilation when possible. Over the past several decades, the Pulmonary Service has grown to include ten attending physicians, including two interventional pulmonologists and six fellows. We also have one of the busiest pulmonary function laboratories in the country. The lab is capable of doing conventional testing, bronchoprovocation challenges, and cardiopulmonary exercise testing. We perform about 10,000 tests each year.
