Head and Neck Surgery
Our department provides individualized care for patients with head and neck cancer. Our specialists take a multidisciplinary approach to patient care, working closely with radiation and medical oncologists, oral and plastic surgeons, speech-swallow pathologists, nutritionists and other physicians.
To foster the comprehensive care of all patients with head and neck cancer, our department holds weekly head and neck tumor board meetings to coordinate optimal patient care and has been instrumental in establishing a weekly multidisciplinary clinic, where patients with head and neck cancer meet with their surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, dentists and nutritionists in one visit. We have expanded this model and recently opened a weekly multidisciplinary office session at the Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care.
