Larynx Cancer Treatment
When it comes to treatment options, the health care team at the John Stoddard Cancer Center will help you to make the right decision. Treatment for laryngeal cancer might involve surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. It's important to talk with your doctor about the advantages and disadvantages of each. The best treatment choice will depend on the stage of the cancer as well as your general health.
One promising new treatment for these cancers is called stereotactic radiosurgery. The John Stoddard Cancer Center was the first facility in central Iowa to offer stereotactic radiosurgery.
The John Stoddard Cancer Center also was the first central Iowa facility to use Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
