Bhuvanesh Singh, a head and neck surgeon and director of the Laboratory of Epithelial Cancer Biology, discusses the treatment team’s desire to cure patients and help them return to their everyday lives.

(02:00)

Treatment for head and neck cancer is constantly evolving. Once treated mainly with surgery, head and neck cancer treatment now involves cooperative, multidisciplinary teams to achieve the best possible outcome. Our treatment team includes surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, speech therapists, rehabilitative specialists, as well as ancillary support services. Our goal is to treat patients using the most effective tools available in the world.

As a surgeon actively involved in the care of patients with head and neck cancer, my role is to serve as leader of the treatment team. I have extensive experience in surgery and an in-depth understanding of each of the disciplines involved in the treatment of head and neck cancer. My philosophy to treat the whole patient, not just the cancer, serves as the basis for our team approach.
