Head and neck cancers are a complex group of diseases with far-reaching implications on some of the most vital everyday functions, including the ability to breathe, speak, eat and swallow. Caring for people with head and neck cancer demands personal compassion and sophisticated medical expertise. We at the Head, Neck and Thyroid Cancer Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital do not take this task lightly. 

Our world-renowned head and neck cancer specialists are devoted to tailoring individualized treatment plans based on the site and stage of each patient’s cancer, implementing thoughtful adjustments along the way as we follow our patients through diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and beyond.

In addition to providing the best available standard therapies, our team is actively involved in clinical research designed to bring the latest novel interventions to our patients, while promoting scientific advancement of the head and neck cancer field.
