The Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center, the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in North Texas, is a major center for head and neck oncology and serves as a regional referral center for the diagnosis and treatment of Head and Neck cancers. Approximately 1000 Head and Neck oncology cases are seen annually.
