Physiatrist & Dietitian Role In Cancer
A physiatrist is a physician that is specialized in rehabilitation
medicine. People who have cancer very often have a variety of
different cancer related musculoskeletal problems, says Dr. Adrian
Cristian, Cancer Rehabilitation Physiatrist with Miami Cancer
Diet is very important in cancer patients too. Carla Araya, Registered
Dietitian with Miami Cancer Institute, says her goal as a nutritionist
is to optimize the nutritional status before, during and after the
treatment. She also says the treatment is individualized.
Prehab therapies are very useful in patients who are in cancer
treatment, she says.
