Head & Neck Oncosurgery
Cancers of the head and neck are common in India. Unfortunately majority of the cases present in the late stages making the chances of cure from the disease very less. To help detect early stage cancers, we have the cancer screening program at low cost in the hospital. All head and neck malignancy cases are properly evaluated, discussed in the multi-disciplinary tumor board meeting and the most optimal treatment is determined. The treatment principle is based on multi-disciplinary team approach emphasizing on organ preservation and restoration of form and function by advanced reconstructive surgery so that patient can have a better quality of life. Surgeries of the benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck, especially oral cavity, salivary glands are routinely done teamed with the Plastic & Reconstructive surgery team where reconstructive surgery is also required.
