Biography

Dr. Monika Leja is a clinical assistant professor and specialist in cardio-oncology at the University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center, Ann Arbor. She has developed a cardio-oncology 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 Michigan. 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 toxic side effects of cancer treatment drugs.
