Head And Neck Oncosurgeries

Tumors in the head and neck region occur due to uncontrolled cell division. Surgery is considered the preferred treatment for a tumor limited to the head and neck. If the tumor spreads to other organs, the surgery is combined with other treatments.

Our Offerings

  • Oral Cavity Tumor Surgery: The common oral cavity tumor surgeries are the excision of buccal mucosa tumors, laser glossectomy, mandibulectomy, commando operations, inferior maxillectomy, and laser excision of leukoplakia and erythroplakia.
  • Oropharynx: Oropharyngeal cancer is related to the nose, oral cavity, larynx, trachea, pharynx, and esophagus. The surgeries conducted for treating oropharyngeal cancer are a radical tonsillectomy, laser oropharyngeal surgeries, and excision of the soft palate.
  • Larynx and Hypopharynx: Surgeries for treating laryngeal and hypopharyngeal tumors include transoral laser resection for T-1 and T-2 tumors, partial and total laryngectomies, total laryngectomy, total pharynx laryngectomy with esophagectomy, and trachea-esophageal puncture and voice prosthesis placement.
  • Neck: Surgeries for management of neck cancer and related symptoms include selective neck dissection, comprehensive neck dissection, radical neck dissection, sentinel node biopsy, excision of branchial cleft cysts, excision of lymphangiomas and hemangiomas, and tracheostomy.
  • Thyroid and Parathyroid: Surgical interventions for managing thyroid and parathyroid cancer include hemithyroidectomy, total thyroidectomy, minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomies (MIVAT), recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring, minimally invasive radio-guided parathyroidectomy (MIRP), and central compartment dissection.
  • Trachea: Tracheal cancer is surgically managed through tracheal sleeve resection, tracheal balloon dilation, tracheal resection and end-to-end anastomosis, Montgomery tracheal stenting, and laser excision of tracheal and subglottic stenosis.
  • Nose and Sinuses: The surgeons treat nasal and sinus tumors through endoscopic medial maxillectomies, partial maxillectomies, total maxillectomies with and without orbital exenteration, and craniofacial resections.
  • Reconstructive Surgeries: Reconstructive surgeries are performed to correct the deformity due to cancer surgery. The reconstructive surgeries include local flaps like the submental island flap, nasolabial flap, platysma flap, and infrahyoid flap; regional flaps like PMMC flap, deltopectoral flap; free flaps like radial forearm flap; fibular flap, LT flap, and mandibular plating.

Partial pharyngotomy involves the removal of some parts of the pharynx, and total pharyngotomy involves the removal of the complete pharynx. It is usually performed to treat throat cancer. Patients with total pharyngotomy lose their ability to speak.

The benefits include reduced risk of complications, a high cure rate, and improved cosmetic outcomes due to small incisions.
