Our Head and Neck Oncology Team

Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center's Otolaryngology Department has a team of experts who specialize in treating head and neck tumors with the latest advancements. We use minimally invasive/endoscopic techniques to treat tumors with lasers and robots, when possible, for quicker healing times and less pain.

At Cooperman Barnabas we partner with "Top Doctors" in Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology to treat tumors in the thyroid, parathyroid and parotid glands as well as cancers of the head and neck, including tongue, tonsils, larynx (voice box) and throat.

We have a team of maxillofacial surgeons, endocrinologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, speech and swallowing therapists, and highly trained nurses. All of the health care professionals on our team focus only on caring for people with head and neck cancer.

Having experts from all of these disciplines ensures that your treatment plan is coordinated and comprehensive. The team meets regularly to review your progress and is constantly thinking of new ways they can improve your experience.

Because the number of people we see in a year is among the highest in the United States, our care teams have a very high level of expertise. Many of our doctors and other specialists are recognized nationally and internationally for their skill in treating head and neck cancer.
