The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute sees more newly diagnosed cancer patients than any other facility in the country. That experience and expertise extends to our Head and Neck Cancer Program, which is nationally recognized by US News & World Report as a “high-performing” facility. We offer advanced technologies including incision-less surgeries, multi-disciplinary care teams for those tumors that aren’t in a single location and high-quality clinical service to meet the needs of every patient.
Because head and neck cancers—laryngeal cancer, lip and oral cavity cancer, oropharyngeal cancer and metastatic squamous neck cancer, to name a few—usually require a combination of different therapies the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute’s Head and Neck Cancer Program takes a multidisciplinary approach. We feature Central Florida’s largest group of otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat surgeons), along with radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, a dedicated Head & Neck Cancer Care Coordinator and other specialists. These experts work together to create an individual treatment plan for every patient we see.
These treatment plans are based on certain conditions related to the cancer—for instance, the location of the malignancy, the cancer’s progress and the general age and health of the patient. Head and neck cancers are often very complex. For that reason, they tend to require a combination of treatments and some highly specialized procedures. Our team will consult with you and review the circumstances of your specific case to map out the treatment plan that best suits your needs.
Not only are we equipped with the latest technology and offer specialists versed in cutting-edge surgical techniques, but the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute is also committed to exploring every possible to treat head and neck cancer. For this reason, we’re deeply engaged in clinical trials that may offer new hope for catching the disease early, controlling it effectively and perhaps one day, finding a cure.
The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute is accredited by several national cancer organizations for their quality, outcomes and comprehensive care. FHCI is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (COC) and the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI). Most recently, our Clinical Research Center has been awarded a $2.1 million grant from the National Cancer Institute’s Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), allowing FHCI access to NCI’s prevention, control and treatment trials for cancer treatment and prevention.
