Evolution of Neck Surgery

This year’s Eugene N. Myers, MD International Lecture on Head and Neck Cancer will be presented by Eun-Chang Choi, MD, PhD. In today’s lecture, Dr. Choi will present “Evolution of Neck Surgery.” 

“I will talk about how to minimize morbidity of neck dissection with super-selective surgery,” Dr. Choi said. “I will also cover how to change this neck surgery from an unsightly one to an esthetic one. This is important because most head and neck surgery is done on an exposed area, leading to the inevitable scar and problems with appearance.”

Dr. Choi said he hopes attendees will walk away with a newfound knowledge about the evolution of neck surgery, including various types of selective neck dissection. In addition, he said, “I hope they will comprehend the advances in neck surgery through new techniques and innovative approaches such as robotic surgery.”

Dr. Choi serves as a Professor and Chairman of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at Yonsei University Health System in Seoul, Korea, a position he has held at his alma mater since 2012.

Dr. Choi’s research focuses on super-selective neck dissection, esthetic head and neck surgery, and metastasis of head and neck cancer. His department is a world leader in the field of robotic head and neck surgery.
