Dr. Monika Leja is a specialist in cardio-oncology at the University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center. She has developed a clinic focusing on the cardiac health of cancer patients from chemotherapy to survivorship. Her clinic includes patients with cardiotoxicity from their chemotherapy, cardiac tumors, cardiac amyloid related to myelodysplastic disease, carcinoid heart disease, radiation induced cardiac disease, hypertension induced by chemotherapy, and all cardiac complications from cancer therapy. She has started a unique cardiac tumor program, first of its kind in the state. This field is pushing the frontier of health care for patients who perhaps have a preexisting heart condition and are diagnosed with cancer, or patients who are suffering from the toxicity side effects of cancer treatment drugs. She is dedicated to finding new ways to prevent the progression or manage the balance between cancer treatment and the progression of heart issues and to work on making the cancer patient return as survivors to their best quality of cardiac health and life.
