NYU Winthrop’s Head and Neck Cancer Program of Long Island, NY

NYU Winthrop’s head and neck center on Long Island, NY is equipped to diagnose and treat various conditions and disorders that affect the head and neck by providing personalized care on a case by case basis. Our state of the art facility allows doctors to provide robot assisted care in the case of head and neck surgeries. This allows patients a faster recovery time using innovate approaches that are minimally invasive.

Treatment of Head and Neck Cancers

Tumors and masses are treated at NYU Winthrop Hospital with a multidisciplinary approach in order to personalize care and treatment. Depending on a patient’s diagnosis, surgical treatments may include:

  • Thyroidectomy / Parathroidectomy –removal of all or part of the thyroid (the facial nerve is monitored carefully during this procedure to ensure the safest possible care)
  • Parotid Surgery – removal of the parotid gland
  • Neck Dissection – removal of lymph nodes from neck tissue
  • Voice Disorder Treatments – ranging from minimally invasive treatments to surgical intervention
  • Endoscopic Zenker’s Diverticulum – repaired endoscopically to reduce pain from the out pouching of the gastrointestinal tract which results in compromised swallowing
  • Da Vinci Robot Assisted Surgery – for maximum precision, vision and access with minimal scarring

Speech Language Pathology Services

Our Speech Language Pathologists evaluate and treat communication and swallowing disorders. As part of the Otolaryngology service, we have specialists who treat voice, swallowing, and upper airway disorders in the inpatient and outpatient setting. We work collaboratively with our Ear, Nose, and Throat Center, and Head and Neck Center to offer many diagnostic exams including a modified barium swallow study, fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing, and laryngeal videostroboscopy.
