The otolaryngology department at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Atlanta, diagnoses and treats cancers of the head and neck. At CTCA® Atlanta, otolaryngologists, or ENT doctors, work closely with patients who have head and neck cancer and ENT-related disorders. With years of additional training and education, our otolaryngologists are equipped to address the concerns faced by patients with complex head and neck cancers.
An otolaryngologist is a doctor trained in the medical and surgical treatment of the ears, nose, throat and related areas of the head and neck. They manage cancer and other diseases that impact the ears, nose, nasal passages, sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, mouth, throat, neck and face. Our otolaryngologists use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including advanced imaging and laboratory tests, to diagnose and stage head and neck cancer. Based on your individual needs, the otolaryngologists in our Atlanta cancer center will work closely with you to recommend treatments designed for you and your specific cancer. The type of treatment recommended by your otolaryngologist may depend on many factors, including the type of cancer, stage of cancer and past medical history.
Otolaryngologists at our Atlanta hospital devote time to educate patients about their disease and options, while empowering them to take an active role in their treatment plan. The doctors and clinicians at our Georgia cancer center are committed to treating the whole person, not just the cancer. Our multidisciplinary team combines advanced medical treatments with supportive care services to help you fight cancer and stay strong throughout treatment.
