In brief: Team work

It takes a team to treat and take care of head and neck patients.
There are surgeons to do biopies or surgical removal, radiation and medical oncologist to give chemoradiation as primary or secondary treatment, speech therapist and nutritionist to support and rehab patients, nurses to monitor patients and last but not least pathologist to make diagnosis.
