Famous Patients:

* Lance Armstrong – Dr. Einhorn led the medical team to treat and saved the life of Lance Armstrong in 1996.

* Keith Palmer – Palmer was a pioneer in the use of embedded virtual test drive on eBay and eBay remains a long PowerSeller. Palmer was treated with Einhorn‘s regime in the IU Medical Center in 1990 and implemented by oncologists Dr. J. Brutha Roth (now of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center) and the beloved, late Dr. Stephen Williams (IU). Palmer suffered embryonal carcinoma in his right testicle, as identified by histopathological study after orchiectomy by the urologist Dr. Neale Moosey. Unlike Armstrong, Palmer underwent retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (also played by Moosey), in which more, metastatic abdominal tumors were discovered. After recovery from the second surgery, Palmer underwent adjuvant chemotherapy Einhorn, consisting of three rounds of placement of platinum with hydration, alternating with three consecutive doses of bleomycin weekly outpatient. Although Palmer has never won the right to wear a yellow shirt, did a little riding in his youth and has long wondered if there is a connection between testicular cancer and the loss of blood supply to the groin due to pressure on the pudendal nerve that occurs in cycling. Today, Palmer still likes biking, and claims to enjoy his new ability to “cross your legs in the European style.” Initially testicular tumor was discovered a pea size in self-examination after feeling a dull pain, radiating into the abdomen after two hours of playing ping-pong with force. Palmer considers physical activity in the night in question agitated enough of the tumor and the testicle to the point that created the first event-related pain.
