Head and Neck Surgery



Head and neck cancers are primarily treated with surgery. This includes diagnostic procedures for certain head and neck cancers and radical open surgery for adequate removal of cancer. However, advances in minimally invasive surgery allow better cosmetic and functional outcomes without compromising oncologic safety.

The minimal access surgeries are either done with a laparoscope or robot. We offer the entire spectrum of open and minimal access to head and neck surgeries.

Diagnostic Procedures


Nasal endoscopy and biopsy

Direct laryngoscopes and biopsy

Micro-laryngoscopy and biopsy

Examination under anesthesia and biopsy

Triple scope and biopsy for unknown primary evaluation.



Open surgeries


Oral Cancer Surgery – Composite Resection (Commando) surgery for cancers of Buccal Mucosa, Tongue, lip, Floor Mouth & Jaw (maxilla or mandible).

Salivary Gland Tumors – partial or total parotidectomy (nerve preserving) submandibular gland resection

Laser-assisted Surgeries – oral lesions, vocal cord surgery (cordectomy)

Throat Cancer Surgery – Partial or whole Laryngectomy & Pharyngectomy

Voice Rehabilitation Surgery - (voice prosthesis placement)

Oropharynx Cancer – Tonsillectomy, base tongue, soft palate.



Head and Neck Cancer Screening


Screening looks for signs or symptoms of cancer before you have any symptoms. Screening methods can detect certain cancers early, such as stomach, colon, and prostate.

The overall goals of cancer screening are to – lower the number of people who die from the disease, eliminate deaths from cancer and lessen the number of people who develop the disease.

Screenable diseases do not include head and neck cancer. However, people who routinely drink alcohol, use tobacco products, or have used tobacco products are at high risk of developing head and neck cancers. Observing the warning signs and symptoms and doing self oral examination and Evaluation by an expert (Head and Neck Cancer Surgeon) for any suspicious-looking lesion can help detect in an early stage.

Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery

Thyroid and parathyroid surgery is typically performed using a small horizontal incision in the front of the neck. This is widely used approach, and usually results in a well-healed and thin scar

Oral Cancer Surgery

For Oral Cancer, surgery is the main treatment. For early oral cancers, intra oral removal of tumor and removal of neck nodes. For advanced tumors, more aggressive resection

Throat cancer surgery

Throat Cancer Surgery is the treatment of choice for many people with throat cancer. You may be able to have a minimally invasive surgery in which your surgeon removes the tumor through your mouth.

Voice Box Cancer Surgery

Early tumors of larynx can be managed by trans oral laser microsurgery. For locally advanced a combination of radiation and chemotherapy is offered. For very advanced tumors, a surgery is performed.

Nose and Sinus cancers

Nasal and sinus cancer is a rare cancer that affects the nasal cavity (the space behind your nose) and the sinuses (small air-filled cavities inside your nose, cheekbones and forehead).

Salivary Gland Tumor Surgery

Surgery is the primary treatment of the Salivary Gland Tumors, preserving the surrounding nerves and vital structures. For advanced tumors post operative radiation & chemotherapy may be advised.

Robotic Cancer Surgery

Robotic devices are often used in minimally invasive surgeries. These surgeries have several advantages including less pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays, and shorter recovery times.

Skull base tumors

Skull base tumors are growths that can form along the base of the skull or directly below the skull base. Many are benign - grow slowly over time. But few skull base tumor can be cancerous.
