Finding the Right Treatment for You

From traditional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation to alternative therapies and clinical trials, your supportive team will build a plan that puts some of the most advanced medical research and procedures to work for you.

Using sophisticated radiation technology, we can target tumors with amazing precision, reducing pain and leaving healthy tissue untouched. Radiation therapy targets specific areas of the body, shrinking tumors and killing cancer cells by damaging their DNA.

Our fellowship-trained surgeons place a strong emphasis on treating tumors with techniques that optimize each patient’s recovery. Options include advanced, minimally invasive procedures and techniques, including major ablative surgery, microvascular reconstruction, transoral robotic surgery (TORS), transoral laser microsurgery (TLM), minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and skull-base surgery.

Using a combination of specialized drugs, chemotherapy has the power to destroy or slow down the growth of fast-growing cancer cells, wherever they are. Chemotherapy is often administered intravenously for head and neck cancers, but it can also be delivered by injection or orally. Depending on disease specifics, our patients may be offered a contemporary standard of treatment or a novel clinical trial.
