Our Head and Neck Cancer Program offers the resources of a world-class medical center along with a personalized, integrated approach to your care. Our goal is to give you the best possible care in the most convenient location for you.

Your integrated care is coordinated through our centrally located hub at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH as well as our five regional locations (Manchester, Nashua, and Keene, NH, and St. Johnsbury and Bennington, VT) and affiliated hospitals throughout New Hampshire and Vermont.

Your team may include a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, surgeon, radiologist, nurse navigator, physical therapist, speech pathologist, social worker, financial counselor, nutritionist and others.
