Head and Neck Multispecialty Clinic
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and UW Medical Center provide comprehensive care to patients with head and neck cancers. In the Head and Neck Multispecialty Clinic, a patient’s care begins with a team evaluation that includes a head and neck oncologic and reconstructive surgeon, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist — all UW Medicine physicians who specialize in head and neck cancers.
This team works closely with our Fred Hutch and UW Medicine radiologists, pathologists, reconstructive surgeons, dental surgeons, neuroradiologists, dieticians, speech and swallowing pathologists, physical therapists and social workers to ensure true collaboration and understanding of the patient’s goals of care.
