Treatment of Head and Neck Cancers

Tumors and masses are treated at Winthrop-University Hospital with a multidisciplinary approach in order to personalize care and treatment. Depending on a patient’s diagnosis, surgical treatments may include:

  • Thyroidectomy / Parathroidectomy –removal of all or part of the thyroid (the facial nerve is monitored carefully during this procedure to ensure the safest possible care)
  • Parotid Surgery – removal of the parotid gland
  • Neck Dissection – removal of lymph nodes from neck tissue
  • Voice Disorder Treatments – ranging from minimally invasive treatments to surgical intervention
  • Endoscopic Zenker’s Diverticulum – repaired endoscopically to reduce pain from the out pouching of the gastrointestinal tract which results in compromised swallowing
  • Da Vinci Robot Assisted Surgery – for maximum precision, vision and access with minimal scarring
