Give yourself a window of opportunity

Dysplasia refers to an area of mouth lining which has abnormal cells. If you think of the line between normal healthy mouth lining and mouth cancer, dysplasias take up the middle ground.

Or to put it another way, a diagnosis of dysplasia represents a window of opportunity to intervene and potentially halt the progression to cancer.

Harnessing the power of lasers for good

Dysplasias are most often treated using the latest laser technology. Lasers help to reduce the side effects for patients, and wounds heal nicely.

At the Head + Neck Surgery London, you’re in safe, experienced hands. Our consultants have laser certification, and perform around 100 laser excisions of dysplasias per year.
