Head and Neck Surgery

Head and neck surgery is a vital branch of medicine that addresses diseases, disorders, and injuries in the head and neck region. This includes the treatment of the throat, larynx, nose, sinuses, salivary glands, thyroid, parathyroid, and lymph nodes. In Australia, head and neck surgeons are highly trained specialists who follow stringent regulations to ensure the highest standards of care.

Head and neck surgery involves a variety of procedures aimed at treating conditions that can significantly affect a patient's quality of life. Australian plastic surgeons specializing in this field are adept at performing intricate surgeries that can restore function and appearance.

Common Conditions Treated


  • Head and Neck Cancer: Early diagnosis and treatment of cancers in the mouth, throat, and voice box are crucial. Australian regulations ensure that cancer treatment protocols are up-to-date and effective.
