Our Thorough Approach

Our program has a multidisciplinary team that includes dedicated head and neck surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists on the medical staff, along with nurses, speech and physical therapists, dieticians and social workers. We take a team approach from diagnosis through rehabilitation and recovery.

Following a thorough diagnostic evaluation, an individualized treatment plan will be developed based on the exact location of the tumor and the stage of the cancer, among other factors. Treatment approaches include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy if appropriate.
