The Head and Neck Specialty Teams and Treatments (STAT) Clinic at Wellstar’s North Fulton Cancer Center is set to open in August 2022. Fiyin Sokoya, MD, the head and neck physician, will treat patients at this clinic alongside an entire team of specialists who all see the patient in one place at the same time.
The specialist team includes: a Head and Neck Surgeon, Medical Oncologist, Radiation Oncologist, Pathologist, Radiologist, and Nurse Navigator. Together they collaborate with pharmacists, physical and occupational therapist pathologists, and other specialists to provide the most comprehensive care possible.
Dr. Sokoya is a fellowship-trained, double board certified head and neck oncologic and facial plastic surgeon who has extensive training in all extirpative, reconstructive, and cosmetic procedures of the head, face, and neck.
While the Head and Neck clinic will open in August, the North Fulton Cancer Center will not open until spring 2023.
The North Fulton Cancer Center is a part of a $12M investment and will have more than 12,000 additional square feet of space to offer comprehensive cancer services in one space and STAT Clinics for breast cancer, lung cancer, and head and neck cancer.
The Center will incorporate CyberKnife technology, a non-invasive treatment for tumors that can reduce radiotherapy timelines from eight weeks to as little as five 30-minute sessions.
