Head and Neck Cancer Chemotherapy Oncology Services
Medical oncologists specializing in head and neck cancers offer a full range of chemotherapy and biologic targeted therapies for all types and stages of cancer.
Patients have access to the latest therapies and clinical trials through our collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI), western Pennsylvania's only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
When appropriate, head and neck cancer patients are placed on a Clinical Pathways — a disease-specific treatment strategy developed by UPMC CancerCenter's physicians to ensure that all patients receive the same quality, evidence-based care.
- Each pathway combines innovative and promising clinical trial options with the best standard of care therapies. Ongoing review by the clinical team ensures that each pathway remains to be the best and most effective treatment option available.
