Laryngeal surgery is a common name for several different kinds of procedures that can be performed on the larynx (the vocal cords and related structures). Micro Laryngeal Surgery is performed when the vocal cords have growths, such as polyps, tumours, or other masses that need to be removed for biopsy or to improve function.
Micro Laryngeal Surgery is a kind of minor surgery that involves the use of endoscope, which is inserted in the larynx area through the mouth. As it involves no incisions the technique used in Micro Laryngeal Surgery is also called as minimally invasive technique or keyhole surgery.
Surgery on the vocal cords can be performed either directly in an open surgical approach (making an incision in the neck) or indirectly through an endoscopic approach (through a tube inserted into the mouth and throat). Either procedure is performed under general anaesthesia (the patient is fully asleep). An open surgical approach is most often performed after trauma or fracture of the larynx (upper front of neck) has occurred.
