Survivorship & Support
To help our patients manage concerns that may arise after treatment for a tracheal disease, Memorial Sloan Kettering offers a wide range of programs, including the following.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Counseling Center
Our Counseling Center offers individual and family counseling sessions to help patients and their families address the problems that they may encounter in adjusting to life during and after treatment.
Integrative Medicine Service
Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Integrative Medicine Service is designed to enhance patients’ quality of life through healing regimens that address the body, mind, and spirit. We offer a number of therapies including various types of massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization, and other mind-body therapies, music therapy, and nutritional counseling, as well as classes such as yoga, t’ai chi, and chair aerobics.
Our Smoking Cessation Programs specialize in addressing the needs of patients who want to improve their health by quitting smoking. We use a range of individually tailored methods to help each person find alternative, healthy ways to resist the craving to smoke and to quit smoking permanently. We also welcome family members who want to stop smoking, as it may be easier to quit together.
Help for Older Patients
A diagnosis of a tracheal disease is difficult at any age, but older patients face unique challenges. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is committed to providing patients aged 65 and older with the treatment, facilities, and support they need.
Older patients receive the services of our multidisciplinary geriatric team, which includes physicians, clinical nurse specialists, social workers, nutritionists, and psychiatrists, as well as members of the Palliative Medicine Service and Integrative Medicine Services.
For more information about our services for older patients as well as for their family and friends, visit the Help for Older Patients section of our website.
