About Head and Neck Cancer
Cancers of the head and neck present significant challenges for diagnosis, treatment and functional recovery after treatment is finished. For this reason, patients with head and neck cancer are best treated in high volume centers teams with the expertise and experience to achieve treatment success and restore function and quality of life.
Our team consists of fellowship-trained oncologists, speech-language pathologists, registered dietitians and nurses who work together to insure comprehensive and efficient diagnosis and treatment. Treatment options include ablative surgery with microvascular reconstruction; re-irradiation; and systemic treatment with both conventional chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted agents. Our primary goal is to efficiently and effectively deliver treatment and to restore patients to their pre-cancer functional status.
Our multidisciplinary team is organized within the Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor Medicine. Our patients receive leading-edge care through customized treatment plans and access to the latest advancements in clinical research. All aspects of patient care are emphasized, including diagnosis, treatment, symptom control, and nutritional support. If you have questions or want to make an appointment, call (713) 798-5900.
