Head & Neck Treatments and Surgeries

Our head and neck diagnostic and treatment unit is a one-stop clinic for your ENT or thyroid consultation and diagnostic tests. Here, we develop your treatment plan and arrange any surgical procedures.

Learn about the wide range of services we offer:

Diagnostic tests

  • Endoscopy: During this procedure, your doctor uses a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera to look inside your body. They examine images on a screen to help make a diagnosis and determine the best treatment options.
  • Laryngoscopy: Your doctor uses a hollow tube with a light attached (laryngoscope) to look at your voice box (larynx) and throat.
  • Microlaryngoscopy: Your doctor inserts a laryngoscope through your mouth to look at your larynx to find and treat problems with your voice box. You’ll be asleep (general anaesthesia) during this procedure. They can take a sample (biopsy) of the voice box lining if they find any areas of concern.

Head and neck surgeries

General head and neck surgeries we perform include:

  • Head and neck cancer surgery: Our surgeons remove cancerous tumours. If you need radiation therapy and chemotherapy as part of your treatment, we partner with The London Clinic to ensure you receive comprehensive care.
  • Laser surgery: We offer minimally invasive laser surgery to treat some head and neck cancers. Laser surgery provides effective cancer treatment while avoiding many quality-of-life problems that can come with treating head and neck cancers — including trouble with eating and swallowing and voice difficulties.
  • Parotid surgery: Your surgeon removes part or all of your parotid glands, located in front of your ears. Parotid glands make saliva that helps you chew and digest food.
  • Robotic surgery: We provide minimally invasive transoral robotic surgery for removal of head and neck tumours. We also use robotic surgery to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.
  • Salivary gland surgery: Your surgeon removes salivary gland cancer as well as all or some of the surrounding salivary gland.

Surgeries to correct or repair ear conditions include:

  • Ear surgery: We use surgery to prevent ear discharge and pain and to improve hearing.

Surgeries to correct or repair nasal conditions include:

  • Endoscopic sinus surgery: This procedure relieves sinus blockages. Your doctor uses a thin camera with a light (endoscope) to view your sinus tissues. They can remove diseased or obstructive tissue if needed.
  • Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping): We use this procedure to improve breathing problems or fix abnormalities caused by birth defects or trauma.
  • Septoplasty: We use surgery to fix a deviated septum.

Surgeries to correct or repair throat conditions include:

  • Snoring surgery: We use minimally invasive surgical treatments to remove or shrink excess tissue and improve snoring.
  • Tonsillectomy: Your doctor may remove your tonsils if you have trouble breathing while sleeping or frequent tonsil infections or tonsil stones.
  • Voice and swallowing surgery: Our surgeons offer treatments to improve voice and swallowing issues.

Surgeries to correct or repair thyroid conditions include:

  • Parathyroid surgery: Your surgeon removes part or all of your parathyroid glands, which regulate your phosphorus and calcium blood levels. Abnormal glands can lead to harmfully high levels of calcium in your blood.
  • Thyroidectomy: Surgeons remove all or some of your thyroid gland. We use this surgery to treat thyroid disease and thyroid cancer.
  • Thyroid nodule surgery: Surgeons remove unusual lumps (nodules) in your thyroid glands. This procedure treats cancer, obstructive symptoms (such as difficulty swallowing or breathing) and suspicious nodules for testing.
