As the first Chief of the Geriatrics Service, which was established in Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Medicine in 2009, I provide a focal point for the care of our older patients with cancer.

Unlike just a decade ago, we now commonly offer cancer treatment to people in their 80s and even 90s. Many are contending with several health conditions in addition to cancer, and are taking numerous medicines while under the care of multiple physicians. As an internist with a specialty in geriatrics, I have expertise in treating these complex cases and provide comprehensive guidance that can help prevent avoidable complications.

Our Geriatrics Service also provides a much-needed framework for investigating new approaches and cancer therapies in this growing population. We both spearhead clinical research as well as collaborate with specialists in such areas as gynecologic malignancies, lymphoma, and psychiatry — and with Memorial Sloan Kettering’s long-established 65+ Program — in the hunt for best practices in caring for older patients with cancer.

A portion of my time is also spent guiding and educating other health professionals locally and nationally about potential complications when treating older adults with cancer.

I am originally from Uruguay, and received my PhD degree from the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Israel, in 1989. It was while I was completing my postdoctoral fellowship in cancer research at the University of Rochester Medical Center in the mid-1990s that I became interested in geriatric medicine, and pursued a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in geriatric medicine there.

I came to Memorial Sloan Kettering from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where I served as Director of Clinical Services in the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Adult Development.
