The Johns Hopkins Head and Neck Cancer Center is at the leading edge of head and neck cancer treatment. You will benefit from the multidisciplinary care of head and neck surgeons, working together with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and speech language pathologists to address every aspect of your experience.

Every person — and every cancer — is unique. With that in mind, our team develops individualized approaches, working with the full array of medical and surgical methods, including traditional, endoscopic and robotic surgery, to address tumors.

Johns Hopkins is a leader in understanding what makes cancer work and how to stop it. Our researchers have made exciting progress in uncovering why tumors occur at a molecular level, which is essential to interrupting the cancer process and preventing head and neck cancers in future generations.
