Sexuality, Intimacy & Menopause Program
The Smilow Sexuality, Intimacy & Menopause Program
The Sexuality, Intimacy, and Menopause Program is one of the only clinics of its kind in the country. By combining both medical and psychological interventions, it is designed to help women who experience sexual dysfunction after cancer.
Sexual dysfunction after cancer is common; however, sexual side effects often go untreated after having successfully treated a patient’s cancer. Our doctors look to manage not only the physical issues, but also any psychological concerns that may arise.
The collaboration between physicians treating men and women allows the practice to help couples as well as individuals, with an emphasis on relationships. We encourage couples to come to appointments together to discuss any intimate issues they would like to address.
