Here’s how we can help

Our specialists are senior members of regional multi-disciplinary cancer teams managing upper aero-digestive tract, thyroid and salivary gland malignancies. Where necessary we bring in other super-specialists to manage the even rarer childhood/adolescent and other soft tissue (sarcoma) malignancies in the head and neck. We provide transoral LASER surgery of upper aero-digestive tract for benign or malignant growths. We support management of post-chemo-radiation complications (hearing loss, tinnitus, sino-nasal, voice, swallow).

We are at the forefront of developing and evaluating novel technological tests and screening strategies, to avoid unnecessary over-investigation and wasted costs in disease management.

Our team are leading the way with evolving minimally-invasive surgical treatment options aimed at minimised disruption for the patient through:

  • Reduced functional morbidity of treatment (minimised impact on voice, swallowing, breathing, pain)
  • Smaller or no incision scar
  • Shorter hospital stays, allowing earlier normalised function and return to work

Simple screening tests include nasendoscopy assessment, which is performed within minutes during an outpatient visit, with or without topical local anaesthesia, often affording reassurance and facilitating swift feedback and treatment for patients.

This test allows the specialist to look directly at the nasal passage (nose), pharynx (throat) and larynx (voice box) or gullet (oesophagus). The endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a bright light at the end, allowing the specialist to clearly and directly view different areas of the lining in the nose, throat and voice box to check whether any disease or abnormality is present.
