Memorial Sloan Kettering is home to a team of compassionate experts from different areas who specialize in treating head and neck cancer. This includes head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, maxillofacial surgeons, dental oncologists, endocrinologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, speech and swallowing therapists, and highly trained nurses. All of the healthcare professionals on our team focus only on caring for people with head and neck cancer.
Having experts from all of these disciplines ensures that your treatment plan is coordinated and comprehensive. The team meets regularly to review your progress and is constantly thinking of new ways they can improve your experience.
Because the number of people we see in a year is among the highest in the United States, our care teams have a very high level of expertise. Many of our doctors and other specialists are recognized nationally and internationally for their skill in treating head and neck cancer.
In addition to the care we provide in Manhattan, our surgeons offer consultations at our outpatient locations in New Jersey, as well as in Westchester County and on Long Island. Other treatments you may need are available at our New Jersey and Long Island locations as well as in New York City.
