About the offer

Surgery in the advanced stages of oral cavity cancer is performed in case of ineffectiveness of radiation and chemotherapy. Before the operation, a comprehensive examination of the patient is carried out. CT scans determine the exact location and size of the tumor. These data provide oncologists with accurate information on the prevalence and extent of bone damage. The main task of the surgeon is to remove cancer and minimize the risk of its relapse. Surgeons act as carefully as possible, but removing the soft palate, jaw bone, part of the tongue, and cervical lymph nodes is often necessary. The maxillofacial or plastic surgeon participates in the operation and instantly carries out reconstruction, allowing for the preservation of the appearance and speech of the patient. Reconstruction is a critical stage of oral cavity cancer treatment since it helps patients regain lost speech and ensure chewing and swallowing. In addition, some patients require dental implants or a tissue transplant from another body part. For example, to reconstruct the tongue, the doctor takes tissue from the donor area (soft tissues of the forearm, abdomen, and thigh). After the operation, the patient stays under the supervision of medical personnel for some time to prevent possible complications. Thanks to modern restorative techniques, patients are usually well rehabilitated even after significant operations.
