Head and Neck Surgery

When surgery is recommended as the best course of treatment, your surgeon will work with you to determine the best approach.

All four of Mass. Eye and Ear’s head and neck surgeons have completed fellowship training in microvascular surgery, an advanced technique in which the surgeons use free tissue transfer to reconstruct the head and neck area. They are also among the most experienced head and neck/microvascular surgeons in the country, with an annual volume that ranks the program as one of the nation’s busiest.

In some cases, patients may benefit from transoral robotic surgery, a less invasive approach using a state-of-the-art surgical robot controlled by the surgeon at a console a short distance away.
