Holistic Healthcare & Quality of Life
A diagnosis of cancer in the head or neck can be devastating and have serious effects on your ability to live normally. Surgery can leave patients with major cosmetic defects, as well as structural and functional challenges. At Sheba, we strive to restore each patient to his or her previous whole self. A team of plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and maxillofacial surgeons collaborate to design the most effective reconstructive surgery possible – enhancing appearance and normal function. As an integral part of holistic healing, we also offer compassionate support services on-site, such as psychologists, rehabilitation therapists, and social workers.
