Memorial Sloan Kettering is home to a team of compassionate experts from different areas who specialize in treating mouth cancer. The team includes head and neck surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, dental oncologists, speech and swallowing therapists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who focus only on caring for people with head and neck cancer.

Having experts from all of these disciplines on your team ensures that your treatment plan is coordinated and comprehensive. The team meets regularly to review each patient’s case and works together to develop a personalized treatment plan that is right for you.

Because the number of patients 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 offer at our Manhattan locations, our surgeons offer consultations at our outpatient locations in New Jersey and Westchester County, as well as 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.
