Head and Neck Cancer
A Multidisciplinary Approach
Treatment of head and neck cancer is often complex and requires a comprehensive clinical approach. To ensure the best medical and functional outcomes for patients, our head and neck cancer surgeons take an interdisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating all types and stages of cancers that occur in the tongue, jaw, larynx (voice box), pharynx (throat), thyroid gland, salivary gland, paranasal sinuses and skull-base.
Ear, Nose and Throat Associates of South Florida offers the only clinically integrated multidisciplinary head and neck cancer treatment program in the comfort of a private practice setting in South Florida. Our cancer specialists work with oncologists, hematologists, radiation therapists, social services and other support personnel in taking a collaborative approach to evaluating patients, defining treatments and minimizing side effects. Through a series of discussions, meetings and examinations, this multidisciplinary collaboration determines the most effective combination of modalities to help increase your chance for recovery. From screening and biopsies to diagnosis and treatment, you will experience the highest level of care in one location, saving you the time and stress of making numerous appointments and waiting lengthy periods for results.
We understand the broad range of emotions our patients feel when diagnosed with cancer. Our caring and compassionate staff are here to help and provide support and hope. Hope of a new day without pain or medication. Hope of recovery. Hope of returning to a normal life.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer, it is important to remember that cancer is not an automatic death sentence. With today’s advanced cancer treatments and programs, it is very possible for a patient to make a full recovery or at least manage the disease for many, many years to come. Keeping a positive outlook can help you make enormous strides in your fight against cancer.
