Head and Neck Oncosurgery is a specialized field of surgery focused on the treatment of tumors and cancers affecting the head and neck region. It involves surgical intervention to remove cancerous or abnormal growths in the area, aiming to preserve function and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Who Needs Head and Neck Oncosurgery:

Head and Neck Oncosurgery may be recommended for individuals who have been diagnosed with various types of head and neck cancers, including tumors of the oral cavity, throat, larynx, salivary glands, and thyroid gland.

Procedure
  • Preoperative Assessment: The surgeon will evaluate your medical history, perform a physical examination, and order imaging tests and biopsies to determine the extent and nature of the tumor.

  • Anesthesia: You will be given general anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and asleep throughout the procedure.

  • Surgical Resection: The surgeon will make incisions to access the tumor and carefully remove it along with any nearby affected tissues. The goal is to achieve complete tumor removal while preserving important structures and functions.

  • Reconstruction: In cases where significant tissue or organ removal is necessary, reconstruction techniques may be employed to restore function and aesthetics. This may involve the use of grafts, flaps, or implants.

  • Postoperative Care: You will be closely monitored in the hospital for proper wound healing, pain management, and any potential complications. The healthcare team will provide instructions on postoperative care, including diet, medications, and follow-up appointments.
