  • I'm delighted to be part of this team and because it is the best in the world.

  • The achievements in head neck cancer care that

  • have occurred here in Johns Hopkins have been seminal.

  • And oh, many patients have benefited from the discoveries made here, and

  • the refinements in patient treatments that have been achieved here at Johns Hopkins.

  • I always tell my patients that I'm only as good as the team around me, and the team around me is the best.

  • That is one of the things that, I think, that makes this place really special.

  • There's two nodules in here.

  • We just want to want to know if there's two nodules here.

  • We have a great team.

  • We have ten head, neck surgeons focused on head, neck cancer in our department.

  • The level of expertise is astounding.

  • Also a multidisciplinary team of experts in medical oncology.

  • Our chemotherapy and radiation oncology.

  • And our pathologist, our anesthesia team, our speak-language pathologist.

  • I'm gonna have you count from one to ten for me.

  • One, two, three.

  • Sounds

  • great.

  • We have a very active, multidisciplinary skull base group.

  • Skull-based cancer, in this case, is usually cancer in the paranasal sinuses.

  • We're gonna make an incision here and we.

  • Around the nose, up under the sinuses, and in the area behind the eyes

  • that requires often interaction between otolaryngologist.

  • Your nose and throat surgeons, and neurosurgeons.

  • So we have a group of surgeons that will work for 24 hours if they need to, to

  • remove a tumor in that very complex area where

  • the brain and the sinuses and facial tissues come together.

  • At the end of the procedure, you get

  • the, your final report that I have already performed.

  • And another thing that's exciting.

  • Is the training programs that we have to offer here at Johns Hopkins.

  • We're training future leaders in this area.

  • Individuals that will make significant discoveries

  • and progress against this disease.

  • That's real exciting.

  • We have a multidisciplinary Conference each week, during

  • which we discuss a specific case, and then delineate the options

  • , and then work with the patient to

  • tailor a treatment approach that is best for them.

  • This may involve a surgical approach or a non-surgical approach.

  • Robotic surgery, or endoscopic skull based surgery.

  • We have state of the art technology and high tech equipment and expertise.

  • These are [UNKNOWN].

  • Right, you know, it's a tiny.

  • The thing is our long track

  • record, 20 years or more, of clinical investigation.

  • In the laboratory that brings innovations to the bedside so that we're at the

  • cutting edge of, of understanding what makes cancer work and how to stop it.

  • Our program has been successful in delineating

  • why these tumors occur at the molecular level.

  • How HPV relates to oralpharyngeal cancer.

  • Early detection has one of our main areas of interest.

  • We're working on a test that will use advanced senocular

  • staging to find cancer cells in saliva and in blood samples.

  • We're also interested in targets.

  • For chemotherapy approach as what they call individualized medicine.

  • So if we know what alterations have occurred in one individual's

  • cancer then chemotherapy options specific to that change can be used.

  • Alright so, you're in good hands and he's up here.

  • Of course our first concern is to cure the cancer.

  • That's everyone's main concern when they come in.

  • But as they go through the treatment, and, look at, the hope of surviving for

  • many years afterwards, their ability to function day to day, rises to the floor.

  • So we need to support and want to support

  • them in their recovery after cancer therapy is finished.

  • The team is intensely focused on this challenging disease.

  • They wanna make progress.

  • They wanna see better outcome.

  • They wanna see cure.
