What Sets Us Apart

Head and neck cancer usually arises in the mucous membranes inside the mouth, nose, and throat. Physicians at NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center and the Head and Neck Center provide customized treatment based on the location of the tumor and how advanced it is.


At NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, we personalize the care of every patient.More About Perlmutter Cancer Center
