Head and neck services at The London Clinic

Head and neck treatments and surgery cover the structures and tissues that form part of the head and neck, including the face, mouth, lips, throat, nose, skin, thyroid and parathyroid glands.

Head and neck surgeons operate on the parts of the body that are responsible for two of our main senses; hearing and smell, as well as the structures in the face, mouth and throat that allow us to interact with others.

Head and neck surgeons can also be trained in dental surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery and ENT surgery, and all of these specialties overlap.

As well as removing benign growths, such as nasal polyps and vocal cord polyps, head and neck surgeons treat cancers that form anywhere in the oral cavity or face, apart from the eyes.

Head and Neck conditions

A deviated nasal septum and other structural problems that affect the nose can arise due to disordered growth from birth or from an accident in childhood or later in life.

Deviated nasal septum

Cancer can develop in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. Most commonly cancer starts to grow in the cells that form the lining of the mouth, nose, throat, ear or the surface of the tongue. 

Head and neck cancer

There are four main types of cancer of the thyroid: Papillary (most common; 4 in 5 cases) and follicular (1 in 10 cases) thyroid cancers are known as differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) and most of these cases are curable.

Thyroid cancer

A recurring inflammation of your tonsils is known as tonsillitis.


Head and Neck Treatments

At The London Clinic, we offer surgery to correct a deviated septum in a procedure known as a septoplasty.This operation is performed by our surgeons who specialise in the treatment of conditions affecting your ear, nose or throat.

Deviated septum treatment

The choice of treatment depends on the type and location of the cancer, how advanced the cancer is and the age and general health of the individual.

The three main forms of treatment are:

  • Surgery
  • Radiotherapy
  • Drug therapy

Head and Neck cancer treatment

A tonsillectomy may be the best treatment option to treat recurring inflamed tonsils, known as tonsillitis. The London Clinic’s ear, nose and throat surgeons offer several different operations to remove the tonsils, using the most up-to-date techniques.
