 Our Radiation Oncology physicians work closely with the Head and Neck Surgeons, Medical Oncologists, and Prosthodontics in a comprehensive multidisciplinary manner. We also work very closely with other specialty services at OSUMC including pathologists and radiologists who are focused on the care of patients with head and neck cancers.

Our department also has a full time social worker who is invaluable in assisting patients and families find needed resources.
