The experts at The Head and Neck Surgical Specialty Group make it a priority to design a customized treatment plan for every patient.
Located on the Swedish Medical Center campus in Englewood, our facility is here to provide highly-experienced care in a patient-focused environment.
Our physician, Dr. Nemechek, is fellowship-trained in advanced head and neck oncologic surgery, ensuring that patients receive the best possible treatment options available to them.
Dr. Nemechek is experienced in treating a number of otolaryngological conditions, including:
Oral cavity cancer
Oral cavity cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the lips or mouth.
Pharyngeal (throat) cancer
Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in your throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx) or tonsils.
Thyroid tumors: Benign and malignant
Thyroid cancer is specific to the thyroid, which is a butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck.
Parathyroid cancer is a rare cancer that usually affects people in their forties or fifties and occurs in one of the four parathyroid glands.
Salivary gland tumors
Salivary gland tumors are rare types of tumors that begin in the salivary glands.
Salivary gland tumors can begin in any of the salivary glands in your mouth, neck or throat. Salivary glands make saliva, which aids in digestion, keeps your mouth moist and supports healthy teeth.
HPV related cancers: Including oropharyngeal cancer
Advanced skin cancer and malignant melanoma
Melanoma is a form of skin cancer that arises when pigment-producing cells—known as melanocytes—mutate and become cancerous.
Most pigment cells are found in the skin, but melanoma can also occur in other parts of the body.
Our highly individualized approach to patient care
Dr. Nemechek is also passionate about public health advocacy for these head and neck tumors, especially when it comes to screening, vaccination and treating HPV-related malignancies.
For all diseases and disorders related to the head and neck, early detection is key.
