Cancer prevention and treatment has dramatically improved over the last three decades. The National Cancer Institute now estimates that by 2020 there will be nearly 20 million cancer survivors in the United States. While patients are living longer and are more likely to survive cancer than they were in years past, physicians are paying closer attention to how cancer treatment may affect other areas of the body, such as the heart. Side effects may occur even after treatment ends.
In partnership with Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown and Overlook medical centers, Atlantic Health System Heart Care is committed to providing cancer patients and survivors with specialized care. Our goal is to prevent and treat potential cardiovascular side effects from cancer therapies, including immunotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy.
Working with other members of the care team, our cardio-oncology
specialists emphasize education, prevention, and early detection. Prior, during, and after treatment, we evaluate a patient’s risk for developing conditions like high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease. specialists
Our cardio-oncology team includes experts in cardiac imaging and heart failure. In particular, specialists in our state-of-the-art echocardiogram facility use 3-D imaging to determine if there may be tissue damage or poor blood flow in any areas of the heart. We will co-manage your care with your oncology specialist and your primary care physician.
Our cardio-oncology specialists use state-of-the art echocardiography techniques and the most advanced technology, which is available at Atlantic Health.
