Head and Neck Surgery in Washington, D.C.
The goal of any doctor is to provide thorough and effective nonsurgical treatments whenever possible; however, if you are dealing with problems that are treatment-resistant, or you have been diagnosed with head and neck cancer, then our otolaryngologist may recommend surgery.
Head and neck surgery may be used to treat a wide range of health conditions such as,
- Jaw issues
- Sinus disorders
- Thyroid problems
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Head and neck cancer
- Spinal cord problems
- Pinched nerves
- Chronic ear infections
- Tonsil problems
There are many different kinds of head and neck surgeries and our otolaryngologist will sit down and discuss your treatment options as well as provide in-depth information regarding what to expect from surgery, the length of the procedure, the recovery time and prognosis. This evaluation with Dr. Bond is not only meant to provide you with the comprehensive information you need to make the most informed decision regarding your health and any treatment you receive but also to ensure that if you have any questions or concerns that you mention them to us during your consultation.
Treating Head and Neck Cancers
The most common surgeries that we perform are designed to remove cancerous tumors of the head and neck. While some head and neck cancers may require chemotherapy or radiation, surgery may be the best approach for removing cancerous tissue and to prevent cancer from spreading.
Due to the physical impact that head and neck tumors can have on a patient’s appearance, an otolaryngologist will also be able to provide reconstructive surgery to restore both function and appearance. Reconstructive surgery can also be performed at the same time as the tumor removal procedure.
Dr. Bond and his team understand that undergoing surgery of any kind, but particularly surgery to remove a cancerous tumor, can be overwhelming and difficult. We also know how important it is to find a doctor that you trust to provide you with the results you want. We would be happy to sit down with you and map out a specific plan for your treatment and recovery so you can decide the best way to proceed. We want you to feel that you are in capable, skilled and professional hands every step of the way.
