Head and Neck Cancer

In conjunction with the departments of Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology, patients with malignant head and neck tumors are reviewed in a multidisciplinary conference and are co-managed.

A unique selective chemotherapy infusion program (RADPLAT) in the treatment of advanced head and neck tumors is fully operational and cooperatively structured through interventional radiology, medical oncology, and radiation oncology.

Fletcher Allen is one of a just a few medical centers in the nation to offer this therapeutic modality.
