Head and neck cancer often adversely affects speech, swallowing, breathing, and appearance. These abilities are part of what makes us who we are and have a significant impact on our quality of life. We work as a cancer team and strive to cure each patient of cancer while minimizing the side effects of treatment. This includes utilizing the most advanced surgical techniques such as robotic surgery, in combination with aggressive physical and speech rehabilitation. We also pay close attention to each individual patient’s needs as everyone presents with unique problems. In this way we hope to provide head and neck cancer patients with the best possible cancer outcome and quality of life.
