Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Doctors recommend radical neck dissection for some patients when oral cancer has spread widely in the neck to the lymph nodes. During the procedure, the lymph nodes are removed along with muscle and surrounding structures, such as the jugular vein, and muscles and nerves used for face, neck and shoulder movement, and speech and swallowing. While radical neck dissection is effective in eliminating cancer, it may require rehabilitation. Florida Hospital Cancer Institute treats patients with severe forms of cancer. Our interdisciplinary team provides care for the whole person—mind, body and spirit for faster healing. Schedule an appointment today.
