"I believe that the next frontier in head and neck cancer will be made in the rehabilitative field. Patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancer suffer problems in speech and eating. Microvascular reconstruction allows us to replace the tissue removed during the surgical procedure with similar composite tissue during the reconstructive aspect. Utilizing various insetting patterns, as well as reanastomosing the neural input/output, we hope to enable our head and neck oncology patients to achieve better rehabilitation than what was possible in the past. In conjunction with our speech language therapists, we continue to monitor our patients' progress and modify our reconstructive strategies to maximize our patients' outcomes."
