Biography Slice

Dr. Einhorn's clinical interests include solid tumor oncology, specifically within the fields of genitourinary and lung cancers. His legacy will forever be linked with revolutionizing testicular cancer treatment. Prior to Dr. Einhorn's research in the area of platinum combination chemotherapy in patients with metastatic testicular cancer, the survival rate of the disease was approximately 10%. Now, due to Dr. Einhorn's monumental findings, the current survival rate for metastatic testicular cancer is at 80%.

Dr. Einhorn rose to even greater prominence when he used his novel treatment paradigm to treat Lance Armstrong, cancer advocate and seven-time winner of the Tour de France. With Dr. Einhorn's treatment, Armstrong survived stage 3 testicular cancer that initially presented with abdominal, brain and lung metastases. Like Armstrong, Einhorn remains dedicated to raising cancer awareness. He was appointed the first Lance Armstrong Foundation professor of oncology in 2006.
