State-of-the-art Surgical Technology

We perform delicate and complex head and neck surgical procedures that require extreme precision.

Technology and Research

Our surgeons use the most advanced surgical technology and imaging techniques available to deliver the most safe, accurate and effective care possible, such as:

  • Advanced imaging techniques that allow us to better define tumor margins so that each tumor is removed precisely.
  • Transoral Laser Microsurgery (TLM) and Transoral Robotic Assisted Surgery (TORS) to ensure improved access and complete resection of tumors

Advanced tissue transfer techniques to replace surgically removed tissue and maintain appearance and function.

Cutting-edge Head and Neck Cancer research at UCLA

Our work at the UCLA Head and Neck Cancer Program offers treatment techniques that go beyond traditional head and neck surgery. Our research faculty is pioneering new ways to treat head and neck cancers that allow for better outcomes. Not only are we researching new personalized treatment options for each individual patient , we are actively making our advanced surgical treatments, such as intraoperative instruments for tumor margin delineation, available to even more patients.

We have one of the most experienced Head and Neck Cancer Care teams in the world. We are using that expertise to treat today’s patients with the most cutting-edge options available and to continue to build on our work so that better options are always available for patients of tomorrow.
