Genetics Help Determine Head and Neck Cancer Treatment
At Avera, you can expect that your care will be supported by the newest techniques and technology. If you’re diagnosed with a head and neck cancer, your case may be supported by genetic testing through Precision Oncology. The Precision Oncology team pinpoints the most effective treatment based on your genetics and the genetics of your cancer.
State-of-the-Art Technology for Precise Care
The head and neck are visible body parts, so treating complicated head and neck conditions or injuries requires a delicate approach. When your treatment plan requires surgery, our physicians will consider using robotic-assisted surgery. The benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:
- Smaller incisions
- Less visible scarring
- Less pain
- Shorter recovery time
Your care will be conducted with dignity and the foresight to minimize scarring or other symptoms. Our surgeons are skilled in plastic surgery to restore effects caused by conditions, injuries and treatment.
Comprehensive Care Team
To ensure our patients receive the most effective care, we collaborate with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, speech and swallowing specialists, dietitians, physical and occupational therapists, dentists, neurosurgeons, ophthalmologists and more.
