Head and Neck Institute

The purpose of the Head and Neck Institute is to provide state-of-the-art surgical and medical treatment for patients with diseases of the head and neck.

Care is individually tailored and provided in a supportive, caring environment by a multidisciplinary group of medical and surgical experts. This specially trained team, including physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, dieticians and speech and swallowing specialists, personally and proactively coordinates each case individually in an evidenced- based scientific fashion. When calling the Head and Neck Institute, you will go through a triage process and your appointments will be coordinated as needed. As a result, specific recommendations and personalized treatment plans are discussed with patients and their families, allowing them to make informed and knowledgeable decisions about the care they receive every step of the way.

For more information please call (845) 483-6314.
