Head & Neck Cancer

Treating Cancers of the Head, Neck, Mouth and Throat

Florida Hospital Medical Group’s internationally renowned head and neck surgeons are accomplished providers of complex, minimally invasive, robotic and reconstructive surgeries to address tumors and other cancerous conditions affecting the head and neck, endocrine glands, airway, and vocal cords. Their superior clinical skills, pioneering research, and teaching affiliations with three Florida medical schools constantly reinforce their status among the elite surgical resources for patients who seek their assistance from across Central Florida. Understanding the significant physical and emotional impacts of head and neck cancers, our specialists apply a unique brand of care, along with highly sophisticated skills in reconstructive procedures to minimize the cosmetic impacts of a life-saving surgery.

Patients who have been diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancer, thyroid tumors, or cancers of the mouth, salivary glands, vocal cords, or lymph nodes in the neck can count on our surgeons’ documented expertise in performing complex neck dissection procedures, skull base and endocrine surgeries and removal of malignant tumors, which is second-to-none in the state of Florida and beyond. We have some of the best five-year survival rates for thyroid and head and neck cancers nationwide, and we are always on the lookout for ways to improve patient outcomes and the overall patient experience.
