We offer a variety of advanced treatments and programs to patients, including standard external beam radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), brachytherapy and treatment programs that combine therapies.
Radiation is a critical part of treatment for almost all advanced head and neck cancers. Radiation therapy can be delivered alone or combined with chemotherapy as a primary therapy before or after surgery. New radiation techniques that precisely aim beams at tumors are very important for patients with head and neck tumors, since crucial structures are often very close to the tumors. IMRT effectively targets the tumor while simultaneously minimizing damage to normal tissues.
