Treatment for benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck

SLUCare Head and Neck Cancer Ronald Walker, MD

SLUCare's division of head and neck cancer and reconstructive surgery specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck, and in reconstruction services for patients who have had head and neck cancer and severe trauma. We manage tumors of skin, salivary glands, thyroid and parathyroid glands, as well as the upper airway and digestive tract.

As part of an academic medical practice, our physicians work closely with Saint Louis University's experts in  oncology, dentistry, speech/language pathology, nutrition and social work to offer our patients information and insight into all aspects of the care they will receive. Our doctors and staff discuss the entire scope of your treatment with you, from your diagnosis to your surgery, as well as reconstructive procedures, follow-up care, and quality of life implications.
