A unique surgery was successfully performed to remove oral cancer tumour in addition to the reconstruction of the cheek, jaw and faringe of the patient. The patient was being treated at the hospital for left cheek cancer but it was established that the patient requires surgery and therefore doctor removed the tumor from the left cheek. Post removal of tumor, plastic surgeon reconstructed mouth, faringe and upper part of the neck. Generally, the surgery used is called ‘Double Free Flap Reconstruction Surgery’ where skin, bones and muscles from minimum two body parts are used for reconstruction. But the new ‘Single Flap Technique’ has reduced the surgery time to 5 hours.
