Head and Neck Cancers
We offer a variety of treatment options to best meet every patient’s individual needs. Services offered in our center include:
On a patient’s first visit, the radiation oncologist will discuss treatment options, including the role radiation will have with other treatment modalities including chemotherapy and surgery. After the initial visit, a specialized CT scan to localize the tumor cells will be scheduled. A treatment plan specific to the patient will be developed, overseen directly by the radiation oncologist. This planning process can take 1 day or up to 2 weeks depending on the type of treatment. When the treatment plan is complete, the patient will be scheduled to begin their radiation therapy treatments. Typically, treatments occur Monday through Friday until the total number of treatments prescribed by the physician has been delivered. A treatment course will generally last from 7 to 9 weeks.
