Cancers and tumors that affect the head and neck can be devastating. Even when the cancer is detected early and removed, there can be a lasting impact on the form and function of the face and neck. Microvascular reconstructive surgery can help patients recovering from head or neck cancer surgery restore nerves, muscle, bone and tissue lost and improve their appearance and facial function. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is one of the top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in New York and an expert in utilizing the most advanced techniques for microvascular reconstruction.

Microvascular reconstruction surgery is used to replace tissue lost during tumor or cancer removal in the face or neck. Dr. Rosenberg uses advanced reconstructive techniques to harvest muscle, nerves, bones and skin from other areas of the body to replace lost tissue. This is a very intricate and complex process, requiring delicate repairs and reconstruction to transfer the harvested materials to reform the face or neck. It is vital that the tissues are carefully transplanted to regain function, but aesthetics are also important. Dr. Rosenberg’s expertise in both functional reconstruction and cosmetic techniques can ensure both factors are achieved.

Head and Neck Free Tissue Transfer

There are several areas on the head and neck that are more likely to be affected by cancerous growths, including the larynx, pharynx, throat, oral cavity, sinuses, tongue and skin. Free tissue transfer is used to restore the area after the cancer has been removed, recreating the form and function as close as possible to its previous state. Tissue is harvested from less vital areas and sutured under a microscope to the wound where diseased or deformed tissue was removed. Nerves and blood vessels are carefully assembled to ensure circulation and movement can be restored to the area using the transferred tissue.

Dr. Rosenberg strives to help survivors of head or neck cancer restore their appearance and facial function for a higher quality of life. If you are facing cancer removal from the head or neck area, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg to discuss microvascular reconstruction surgery.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
