Smilow Sexuality & Intimacy Program
About the Smilow Sexuality & Intimacy Program
Sexual dysfunction after cancer is common; however, sexual side effects often go untreated even after successful cancer treatment. The Sexuality and Intimacy Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital is the only program of its kind in the country. We help men and women who experience sexual dysfunction after cancer using a combination of medical and psychological care.
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.
