WHO WE ARE — Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is a world-class cancer treatment center that unites doctors from Fred Hutch, UW Medicine and Seattle Children's. Learn More

Overview

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the Northwest's leader in head and neck cancer care and is ranked as one of the top five cancer centers in the nation.

UW Medicine and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center doctors are developing new cancer treatments every day. Our goal is to achieve cure and at the same time minimize acute and chronic side effects of therapy.

As a patient, you will be seen by a team of doctors, often in just one clinic visit. Our doctors will then meet together to prepare and present to you a tailored treatment plan.

At SCCA, we are committed to bringing the newest treatments, including state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries like robotic surgery with the da Vinci Robot for transoral minimally invasive surgeries for difficult-to-access tumors, like those found at the base of the tongue.
