Where you go for cancer treatment can make a big difference in your survival. Recent studies have demonstrated that patients receiving treatment for cancer at specialty cancer hospitals, like Fox Chase Cancer Center, can benefit from additional years of life.

At Fox Chase, our head and neck cancer team takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer, including diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care. We draw on the experience of physicians and other clinical staff in head and neck surgery, hematology/oncology, radiation oncology, plastic surgery, radiology, pathology, endocrinology, speech pathology, physical therapy and nurse navigation. These teams work together to diagnose your condition and help you make informed decisions about your treatment.
