A Patient's Guide to Head and Neck Cancer
We use biopsies and the latest imaging tests to deliver an accurate head and neck cancer diagnosis. You have access to sophisticated fusion imaging studies such as PET/MRI and PET/CT scans, which capture a level of detail that is not possible through separate tests.
We tailor treatment plans so that you receive the services that are best for your unique needs. We offer a broad range of treatment options, including clinical trials and immunotherapy, which uses the immune system to fight cancer.
Our radiation oncologists offer intensity-modulated radiation therapy plans that employ Varian TrueBeam® technology. Our innovative techniques deliver focused treatment and reduce damage to surrounding tissues.
Our surgeons employ minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible, including transoral robotic surgery. With minimally invasive surgery, you can expect reduced side effects, shorter hospital stays and smaller incisions. We also offer reconstructive surgery, which focuses on restoring appearance and function.
You may be eligible to receive new cancer treatments through clinical trials. We offer options that are only available in select cancer centers nationwide.
