Head & Neck Surgery:

Head and Neck problems include swollen lymph nodes, neck mass, cyst, and lumps. The cause of the lesion can be from inflammation, infection, congenital, tumor and malignancy.

Lymph Node Biopsy:

Involves a small incision of the skin in the neck, separate soft tissue to locate and remove the enlarged lymph node. The lymph node will be sent to pathology for diagnosis. This procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia.

Submandibular Gland Removal:

Submandibular is a salivary gland located one on each side of the underside of the jaw. The duct of the gland can become blocked by a stone and this can cause infection. The gland can also develop a tumor. An incision is made at the upper lateral neck and the gland is removed. This is usually performed under general anesthesia.



The Parotid gland is also a salivary gland located on the side of each cheek. Parotidectomy is usually necessary when a tumor has been identified. This procedure involves an incision in front of the ear extending to the neck. The facial nerve dissection is usually required to protect the nerve and preserve the movement of the face. This is usually performed under general anesthesia.



A Thyroidectomy is usually required when a tumor or cancer has been found in the thyroid. A horizontal incision is made in the front of lower neck and after carefully identifying the recurrent laryngeal nerve, the thyroid glands and tumor is removed. The laryngeal nerve is important to maintain a clear voice. This is usually performed under general anesthesia.



Parathyroid Glands are located behind the thyroid gland, most people have four. Their function is to maintain a steady blood calcium level. When one or more glands become tumorous or over grown, the blood calcium level can increase. Stones can occur in the gall bladder or kidney. Removal of the enlarged Parathyroid gland is necessary to control the blood calcium level. This is usually performed under general anesthesia.
