How We Treat Head and Neck Cancer
Your case is unique, which means your treatment plan will be designed around you and your unique needs. Every week, a team of specialists meets to discuss cancer cases and collaborate on the best treatment for each patient. You benefit from the combined expertise of specialists in radiology, surgery, pathology, pharmacology, oncology and therapists in fields like physical therapy and psychology.
Your recommended treatment will be based on best practices that have worked for other patients, specific aspects of your cancer/tumor, the results of all your tests, the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences.
While there are many ways to treat head or neck cancer, the main types of treatment are surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or any combination of the three with additional newer treatments to supplement your care.
