Conservation surgery

A strategy and philosophy of larynx [intlink id=”77″ type=”post”]cancer[/intlink] surgery that focuses not only on radicality with respect to removal of [intlink id=”77″ type=”post”]cancer[/intlink], but also on being conservative concerning sparing of normal laryngeal structures, so as to preserve voice, swallowing, and breathing, and to avoid total laryngectomy and/or chemotherapy and radiation. Special training and experience are required especially for advanced conservation operations, both laser (through the mouth) and non-laser (through an incision on the neck).
