If you suspect that you have a head or neck tumor or have just been diagnosed, our Head and Neck Cancer Clinic is here to help you.
Over the last decade, advances in chemotherapy and radiation therapyhave allowed the world-class specialists at UAMS to treat many head and neck cancers with less invasive procedures or without surgery.
Our clinic at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute provides the most advanced treatment with state-of-the-art equipment for all types of malignant and benign tumors of the head and neck, including:
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Vascular malformations
- Salivary gland tumors
- Skull base tumors
Doctors in the Head and Neck Oncology Clinic work closely with our other cancer specialists, such as radiation oncologists and medical oncologists, to decide the best treatment plan available for you. Should you require reconstructive surgery, a surgeon with extensive reconstruction experience is available to see you in the same building as our clinic.
This multidisciplinary approach to health care is the standard for clinics in the UAMS Cancer Institute and not only offers comprehensive care but also reduces the number of clinic visits required.
Our clinic services are led by James Suen, M.D., who is nationally recognized as a leader in his field and has coauthored the manual on head and neck cancer.
Depending on your condition, you may be eligible to participate in clinical trials offering new and innovative treatment not available elsewhere in Arkansas.
