Head and Neck Surgery Program


Advanced Pediatric Head and Neck Surgery Program
At the Cohen’s Children Medical Center, we believe the highest quality of care for children with complex head and neck lesions comes from a multidisciplinary, integrated team approach. When children are affected by thyroid, salivary gland, skin or other head and neck cancers, we feel that an integrated approach to evaluation and management provides the best patient care and overall family experience. This multidisciplinary approach allows for streamlined channels of communication and facilitation of consultations. In addition, patient evaluations are able to be scheduled to make it as easy as possible for children and their families, so they do not have to be concerned that information is not shared between care providers.


Our primary goal is to make diagnostic evaluation and management recommendations as if each child were one of our own, while providing state of the art clinical care, and improving diagnostic and treatment techniques. Research is a critical component of our program, both to advance treatment options, as well as examine our patient outcomes to guide evidence-based clinical practice.
