Head & Neck Cancers

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way head and neck cancers are prevented, detected, treated and, yes, cured.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and there are no routine head and neck cancers.

Head and neck cancers are complex diseases. Each patient’s cancer is different, behaving differently in the bodies they’re in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective head and neck cancer detection and treatment, our internationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

Our team of head and neck cancer subspecialists spans a broad range of disciplines: from medical and radiation oncologists to head and neck surgeons, dentists, voice and swallowing specialists, molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more — all specializing in a specific type of head and neck cancer research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.  

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual head and neck cancer patient.

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.
