• Overview

    Oral cancer surgery plays a crucial role in the treatment of oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancers. Typically, it is the primary treatment option for small, early-stage cancers that have not spread to other parts of the body. The specific surgical approach varies depending on the location and stage of the cancer.

    The primary goal of oral cancer surgery is to remove the cancerous tissue while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. This not only helps eliminate the cancer but also aims to maintain the patient's vital functions and quality of life.

    In some cases, after the cancerous tissue is removed, reconstructive surgery becomes necessary to restore both the appearance and function of the affected areas. This is particularly relevant when the cancer or cancer treatment has resulted in significant tissue loss or impairment. Reconstructive surgery utilizes various techniques, including microvascular reconstruction and free flap surgery, to rebuild and restore the affected structures, such as the mouth and throat.

  • Advanced Techniques in Oral Cancer Surgery

    Head and neck cancer surgery is a vital component of treatment for oral and oropharyngeal cancers. It involves the removal of cancerous tissue, often with a margin of healthy tissue to ensure thorough elimination. The specific surgical approach depends on factors like the tumor location and size.

    Procedures such as tumor resection, mandibulectomy, maxillectomy, and robotic surgery may be employed based on individual needs. Mohs micrographic surgery, for instance, is ideal for lip cancers. For larger tumors, more extensive surgeries like mandibulectomy or maxillectomy may be necessary.

    Laryngectomy, which involves voice box removal, is reserved for complex cases. Neck dissection, a procedure to remove affected lymph nodes, may also be performed.

    Microlaryngeal surgery is a crucial component of oral cancer surgeries, focusing on preserving vocal function. It involves precise excision of tumors in the larynx while safeguarding vocal cords. This technique enhances post-operative voice quality and patient's quality of life.

    Reconstructive surgery becomes essential to repair defects caused by extensive cancer removal, and various techniques are available. Skin grafts, muscle flaps, and microvascular procedures offer options for rebuilding affected areas.

    Laser surgery plays a pivotal role in oral cancer surgeries, offering precision and minimal invasiveness. It allows for targeted tumor removal, reduced post-operative discomfort, and faster recovery. This technology continues to advance the field of oral oncology, improving patient outcomes.

    Microvascular free flaps are indispensable in oral cancer surgery, enabling reconstruction after tumor removal. These delicate tissue transfers restore both form and function, ensuring patients can eat, speak, and lead fulfilling lives. This technique has revolutionized oral cancer treatment, offering remarkable results.

    Dental prostheses and implants are invaluable in oral cancer surgery for restoring oral function and aesthetics. They aid in replacing lost teeth and tissues, improving patients' ability to eat and speak post-surgery, enhancing their overall quality of life.
