The McGill University Adult Head and Neck Cancer Program is situated at the MUHC Royal Victoria Hospital (Glen site) and the Jewish General Hospital. The two centres work as a unified multidisciplinary team through the Rossy Cancer Network. The service provides comprehensive cancer care with the close collaboration of head and neck surgeons along with a multidisciplinary team made up of radiation and medical oncologists, head and neck pathologists, radiologists, nurses, dentists, speech language pathologists, nutritionists and social workers.

Advanced ablative and reconstructive surgical techniques including microsurgery, transoral laser surgery, transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and microvascular reconstructive surgery are offered to patients. Through collaboration with radiation and medical oncology, patients have access to advanced radiotherapy techniques, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapies to personalize their treatment. Patients have access to novel therapies offered through clinical trials including transoral robotic surgery.

The academic program trains medical students, residents, fellows and graduate students. The program includes an active research component in fundamental, translational, and clinical research.
