Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Koch "Patients with tumors of the mouth, throat, and neck region face special challenges. The top priority is to cure disease, and this requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The ENT surgeon as diagnostician and surgical oncologist is a key member of the treatment team. Attention to preservation of function and quality of life is critical. We take particular care to provide adequate time to answer questions, consider all options, coordinate care and walk with each patient through treatment."
