Not long ago, patients with complex head and neck diseases did not have a lot of options for minimally invasive procedures as treatment. Traditional approaches to head and neck surgeries involve extensive incisions and lead to many complications, including visible scars and difficulty swallowing or breathing after surgery.
With the advances in science and technology, removing tumours of the head and neck region without leaving behind visible scars is very much possible. Minimal access surgeries produce better functional outcomes with lower morbidities.
Minimal access surgeries include scarless thyroidectomy, microlaryngoscopic surgery, endoscopic procedures for nasal, paranasal, and base of the skull tumours, and keyhole surgery for parathyroid.
These surgeries are associated with fewer side effects compared to traditional surgical procedures. Their benefits include shorter hospital stay, faster recovery periods, reduced postoperative pain, minimal risk of postoperative infections, and minimal scarring.
The Department of ENT at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Navi Mumbai houses qualified surgeons who are specialised in performing minimal access surgeries. With years of medical expertise in the field, they perform surgeries for mild and severe cases in both adult and paediatric groups. The Department is equipped with state-of-the-art machines and medical instruments, and the newest technology is employed while delivering care and treatment.
