Life Doesn't Stop When Cancer Strikes​

“It’s not will you live, but how will you live.”
– Kirsten Rojas, MD

Experts at the Maimonides Urogenital, Sexual Health and Intimacy Center (MUSIC) help you to address sexual health problems that may arise due to treatments. Education and techniques for dealing with side effects are provided. We are the only program in Brooklyn – and among a select few in the nation – offering these services.

Individuals identified as high-risk can adopt tailored medical management plans to detect cancers at early stages or prevent their occurrence entirely.

Social workers help empower patients and families through all phases of the cancer journey. They help patients access information to understand their diagnosis and treatments, as well as offer practical and emotional support in coping with the disease.
Dietitians provide patients with guidance on how to appropriately nourish their bodies before, during and after treatment. Proper nutrition can help patients gain or maintain weight, sustain energy and strength, lessen treatment side effects, improve response to cancer therapy and reduce complications of treatment.
Patients can be referred for specialty assessment and management of the psychological, emotional, cognitive and behavioral problems that arise in association with cancer. Our behavioral health team includes a psychiatrist and psychologist with expertise in treating patients with cancer.
Social workers assist patients with applications to programs that offer practical and financial assistance.

Our program aims to minimize exposure to highly-addictive pain medicines such as opioids. Our nationally recognized pain management protocols rely on long-acting local anesthesia and alternative pain-relieving medicines.

Palliative care for better management of post-surgical pain and treatment side effects, such as nausea, fatigue, depression or anxiety.
