The UPMC Department of Otolaryngology recognizes that cancer survivorship starts at diagnosis. The multidisciplinary providers of UPMC’s Head and Neck Cancer Survivorship Clinic offer a comprehensive evaluation to patients before the start of their cancer treatment. This evaluation allows us to not only identify underlying issues patients may be experiencing regarding swallowing, dental care, and mobility, but also allows us to educate patients about strategies to optimize their health during treatment. After treatment, we utilize a patient-centered approach that includes surveillance, assessment of treatment effects, identification of referral and resources to help our survivors live beyond their cancer.
