Head and Neck Cancers

Expert Care for Head and Neck Cancer

The treatment of head and neck cancers often requires more than one approach.

Our team of experts will customize your treatment, offering transoral robotic surgery and a range of radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and support services.

We create a plan based on the latest findings of medical research, and your personal needs and preferences. We also offer a large clinical trials program, featuring innovative approaches if standard treatments fail.

Types of Head and Neck Cancer We Treat

Our team is highly experienced in treating the full range of head and neck cancers, including:

  • Advanced skin cancers of the head and neck region
  • Oral, typically in cells that cover surfaces of your lips, tongue and mouth
  • Paranasal sinus and nasal cavity, in the sinus area inside and surrounding your nose
  • Salivary gland, located under your ears, on the floor of your mouth and near your jawbone
  • Throat (pharyngeal and oropharyngeal), starting behind your nose and ending where the windpipe (trachea) and esophagus begin
  • Thyroid, in the gland at the base of your throat that makes hormones that control your heart rate, blood pressure, temperature and weight
  • Voice box (laryngeal), contains the vocal cords and epiglottis, tissue that prevents food from entering your air passages
