ENT Cancer Treatment Options
Our team has access to a variety of diagnostic tools that enable us to make accurate and detailed diagnoses, an especially important factor when treating benign and cancerous tumors of the head or neck. By thoroughly mapping the location of a tumor, our staff can deliver treatment with greater precision than was previously possible, which may help limit damage to healthy cells. And, by determining the cellular characteristics of a lesion, we can further customize our treatment recommendations to be as effective as possible.
Treatments we offer include:
- Surgical interventions
- Skull-based surgery
- Mohs surgery
- Facial and skin reconstruction
- Microvascular flap reconstruction surgery, a procedure that very few centers perform
- Chemotherapy infusions
- Radiation therapy options
In addition to our ear, nose and throat cancer treatments, we offer supportive care services such as speech pathology assistance, physical therapy and audiology treatments all in one place. A clinical trials research coordinator on staff monitors active clinical trials and recommends our patients when appropriate.
