Compared with other sections of your body, your head and neck seem small—but they comprise an amazingly broad array of organs, tissues and functions connected by an expansive network of nerves. So when something goes wrong, you want trustworthy solutions that restore full function and appearance.
In the Sutter Health network, head and neck otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat specialists) collaborate with other experts, such as neurologists and neurosurgeons, to provide you with sensitive and comprehensive care. We apply this multidisciplinary approach to find the best treatments for facial and cranial nerve disorders, such as facial neuralgia, palsy or spasms, that can disrupt your life with vertigo, pain, weakness and more.
You can rest assured that your care teams are also specialized in diagnosing and treating head and neck cancer.
If your head and neck area suffer disfigurement from genetic anomalies, illnesses such as cancer, or traumatic injury, your doctor will work with you and other specialists to devise a plan for an excellent outcome—including, when needed, skillful reconstructive surgery. Head and neck surgeons specialize in minimally invasive and microsurgical techniques, such as endoscopic pituitary surgery, endoscopic orbital decompression, and rare facial-part reattachment microsurgery, to restore outward looks while resolving functional problems.
