Support Services

Swallowing Center: Directed by a Speech Language Pathologist with more than 20 years of experience, the Swallowing Center provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and therapy for a myriad of swallowing conditions.

Speech therapy: As part of the swallowing center, speech therapy is provided both pre- and post-operatively to those experiencing difficulty.

Dietary counseling and nutrition: We have an on-site registered dietician to help coordinate nutritional plans, counsel patients pre- and post-operatively, provide recommendations for weight management, and ensure nutritional needs are being met.

Cancer support: Cancer takes a toll on both the patient and his or her family. Spending time with others who have a shared a similar experience can help with feelings of depression, frustration, anxiety and the struggle of coming to terms with a whole new way of life. Those with cancer can find this type of fellowship at many support groups throughout the area. These groups help to boost spirits, validate feelings and encourage the determination to recover.
