Abstract

Care of patients with advanced head and neck cancer is a multidisciplinary effort through all phases of care. Head and neck cancer surgery involves balancing oncologic control, functional preservation, and aesthetics. Given the advances in free tissue reconstruction, the majority of defects can be reconstructed using free tissue transfer flaps. A 2-team approach allows for early, continual communication and meticulous operative planning. Operations can be combined into a single effort. This approach maximizes efficiency and enables multidisciplinary collaboration for comprehensive surgical treatment. We present our experience and an outline of how responsibilities between the ablative and reconstructive teams are shared.
