Health Travel Head and Neck Surgery Options
Head and Neck Surgery is typically performed by general surgeons who have completed advanced training/ fellowships in head and neck procedures. After completing this training, these surgeons may be nationally or internationally certified as Head & Neck surgeons. Procedures offered within our network include:
Endoscopic Surgery / micro-endoscopic surgery
This minimally invasive procedure allows surgeons to remove tumors with a specialized endoscope and camera without making an incision.
One of our head and neck specialists has been trained in sialendescopy with the world’s foremost experts on this procedure, which is a form of micro-endoscopy to look at the salivary glands.
Neck dissection are usually performed to remove cancer that has spread to lymph nodes in the neck. Generally, lymph nodes and surrounding tissue are removed from the neck, depending on the location of the cancer.
Transoral Laser Microsurgery
Widely used for tumors of the throat and larynx, this surgery is performed directly through the mouth and does not leave a visible scar.
Using state-of-the-art technology, surgeons can safely remove certain thyroid tumors through small incisions near the neck, avoiding a neck scar.
Our specialists perform a wide variety on oncology procedures for diseases of the head and neck and well as benign thyroid disease and benign salivary gland conditions.
These are just a few surgeries our affiliate surgeons perform regularly. If your procedure isn’t listed, it doesn’t mean we don’t have surgeons who perform it. Reach out to us anyway!
