Board-certified hematologist/oncologist specializing in multiple myeloma
I am a board-certified hematologist/oncologist with a special interest in plasma cell dyscrasias — a group of disorders that includes multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, light chain deposition disease, POEMS syndrome, and Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia. There have been tremendous advances in this field over the past decade, and several new drugs are available or in development to manage these conditions. With my colleagues at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I have focused on developing and optimizing new approaches to treat these diseases, including both new drugs and new strategies to improve patients’ outcomes. I also have a particular interest in thrombotic complications (blood clotting) that occur in cancer patients and in patients receiving chemotherapy. We are trying to develop prophylactic strategies to decrease the frequency of these common complications in cancer patients using old and newer blood thinners.
