Cancer patients have long searched for treatment beyond radiation, surgery and chemotherapy. And they’re asking their physicians about other treatments. Many cancer specialists at Miami Beach’s Mount Sinai Medical Center are integrating nutrition, yoga, aromatherapy, meditation, art classes and other therapies with conventional treatments. One leader in the approach is Dr. Mike Cusnir, Mount Sinai’s co-director of gastrointestinal malignancies. Patient questions and requests prompted him to research complementary therapies for his cancer patients, including conducting clinical trials of such therapies.
