Head & Neck Surgery

The head and neck region is the area between the base of the skull and the top of the lungs, and as such is the main corridor between the brain and the body.

Due to its confined space, it is also the densest area of vital structures in your body. The head and neck region houses all sorts of important functional organs responsible for breathing, swallowing, speech, chewing, hearing, eyesight, balance, contact, exchange of emotions, and many others. This is what makes head and neck disease so invalidating and its treatment complicated, as it is often a delicate trade-off between eliminating disease and preserving quality of life. 

Dr. Wreesmann is a fellowship-trained head and neck surgeon with a vast experience in diagnosing and treating head and neck disease. This includes non-cancerous lesions such as neck lipomas, thyroglossal duct cysts or branchial cleft cysts, vocal cord abnormalities including papillomas or Reinke’s edema, salivary gland disease, cancerous (skin) tumors of the head and neck in all shapes and forms, thyroid and parathyroid disease, and many others. Whether you suffer from a lump in your neck, a growth in your mouth, a cyst on your vocal cord or a different issue entirely, our team is here to help you.

Below we will include some examples of head and neck problems we commonly encounter in our clinic.
