Head and Neck Cancer Reconstruction
People who have undergone surgery to treat head and neck cancer, those with deformities and those who have suffered burns and trauma, opt for reconstructive surgery of the head and/or neck to improve their functional abilities and appearance.
As with all types of reconstructive surgery, the goal of head and neck reconstruction is to restore and maximise patients’ function and appearance. Because the head and neck are vital to eating, breathing, blood flow, and communication and due to the visibility of these areas, reconstructive surgery has unique challenges and goals.
There are a number of advanced surgeries that can be used to reconstruct areas of the head and neck. Some of them are as follows:
- Free tissue transfer and microvascular anastomosis
- Local flap reconstruction
- Reanimation of the paralyzed face
- Reconstruction of the jaw and facial bones
- Reconstruction of the nose, mouth, and ears
- Skull-base surgery
- Skin grafting
- Tissue replacement
To ensure the best outcomes, Dr. Date works closely with patients to help them choose the most appropriate surgical options based on their individual goals, preferences, and fitness for major surgery. Primarily, the goals of reconstruction focus on:
- Prevent leakage of saliva outside of the mouth and throat
- Improve speech and swallowing
- Maximise cosmetic results
