Head and Neck Tumors and Cancer

Undergoing cancer treatment requires stamina, patience, courage and hope. Once patients make their way from diagnosis to hearing that they are cancer-free, they are eager to return to their ordinary lives. Part of that return may involve undergoing reconstructive surgery at the site where cancerous tumors were removed. If you need treatment for head and neck cancer, including reconstructive surgery post-treatment, you can learn more at the Johns Hopkins Head & Neck Cancer Center

Other patients who have had benign tumors removed from their heads, faces or necks may not have endured the same ordeal as cancer patients, but they too are eager to return to a normal appearance.

For both kinds of patients, the reconstructive surgeons at Johns Hopkins can offer surgery to reconstruct facial features and restore skin on the neck and head. Employing a variety of materials, including skin and bone grafts and synthetic materials, they can restore appearance and functionality to affected areas.

Why choose Johns Hopkins for head and neck surgery?

At Johns Hopkins, our fellowship-trained surgeons can consult with and call on other medical personnel who are as knowledgeable and experienced in their fields as the surgeons are in theirs, such as medical and radiation oncologists, anesthesiologists, and pediatricians. Or anyone else they need.

Our surgeons are devoted to their profession and to providing attentive patient care. From the first consultation to the final check-up, our reconstructive surgeons make themselves available and accessible to patients and their families.
