Cancer & Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery

Micro vascular reconstruction for complex defects of oral cancer, tumours of the head and neck and other deformities are performed regularly with the help of a sophisticated operating microscope. This is the only centre in this region to perform such high quality, technically demanding surgical procedures for poor and needy patients to improve their quality of life.  Because of the advanced reconstructive technique we are able to operate more number of cancer cases with better reconstructive outcome. The advantage of micro-vascular free flap compared to conventional flap is faster healing, less morbidity and duration of patient stay is less. Free flaps used for reconstructions are free Fibula flap, Radial fore-arm flap and Anterolateral thigh flap.

Types of Free Flap

  • PMMC Flap 
  • Temporalies Flap
  • Skin Graft 
  • Forhead flap 
  • Anterior Lateral thigh flap 
  • Fibula Graft 
  • Radial Forearm Flap

A Total of 33 cancer cases were operated this year which is more compared to last year.
