HEAD AND NECK CANCER

Head and Neck Cancer: The First Dayton Difference

The best treatment for oral, head and neck cancers is directed by an experienced specialist. Doctors Marger and Hughes are the region's experts. They use advanced technology and extensive experience to find the best way to fight and beat your head or neck cancer.

First Dayton is the only freestanding facility in the region to offer both CyberKnife® and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) – so we can combine treatments if necessary. Our collaborative approach means we'll work with your whole treatment team to find the fastest way to get you back to your life.

First Dayton Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

IMRT is effective for early-stage head and neck cancer because it allows your cancer care team to conform the radiation dose to your tumor. IMRT is often used in combination with chemotherapy to provide excellent cure rates with few complications.

Our physicians are a part of a collaborative team of experts who will help reduce your risk for harmful side effects and improve your results. As independent physicians, we can work with surgeons and medical oncologists of your choice or we can recommend who we think is the best.

Benefits of IMRT

  • No cutting
  • No pain
  • Spares healthy tissue
  • Higher doses can be used safely
  • Few, if any, side effects
