Head and neck surgery comes under the department of otorhinolaryngology. This Surgery has an integrative research program designed to address the needs of the head and neck cancer patient now and for years to come. Patients seek treatment from an otorhinolaryngologist for diseases of the nose, throat, or ear and for the management of cancers of the head and neck. Otolaryngologists perform this surgery which involves removal of tumors from anywhere in the head and neck region. This includes the voice box, tongue, the parathyroid gland, salivary gland, thyroid glands, including the submandibular and parotid glands, tumors that involve the eye, and they work in coordination with neurosurgeons to remove or to reduce tumors that involve the brain or the base of the skull as well.
