Head and Neck Reconstruction Surgery in Mumbai


Head and neck reconstruction is required in many situations, including:

  • After the removal of large cancers
  • Trauma victims
  • Burns victims
  • Congenital anomalies

We offer the following modalities of reconstruction:

  • Grafting to areas of loss
    e.g. following burn injuries, and extensive injuries
  • Local flap reconstruction Local tissue can be used and transferred using flaps to restore soft tissue cover. These flaps are very safe in the head and neck region.
  • Regional flap reconstruction Reliable tissue can be transferred based on the vascular pedicles of the head, neck and chest region.
  • Free flap reconstruction More complex defects require the use of free tissue transfer. This is where a reliable block of tissue is moved from one area to another and its blood supply is restored using microsurgical techniques.
  • Revascularisation and replantation Microsurgical reconstruction is used to restore a blood supply to a region when it has been divided (e.g. scalping type injuries or after the amputation of all or part of the nose and ear), or to restore blood flow when interrupted by trauma (e.g. crush injury).
