University of Wisconsin Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Tumor Board is a long-standing tumor board focused on discussing the optimal treatment and diagnostic plan for each patient, covering about 20 patients per week. The tumor board draws expertise from physicians in head and neck surgery, oral surgery radiology, pathology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology, as well as, nurses, speech and language pathologists, advanced practice providers, and others. We are focused on optimizing care for each patient by taking into account the unique clinical and social circumstances of each patient.
