Neck Surgery Defined: This is a very broad term. It refers to any procedure performed on the structures of the neck, ranging from cosmetic (facelift/necklift/rhytidectomy), to traumatic (neck exploration for injury), to cancer (neck dissection of lymph nodes), to endocrinologic (thyroid/parathyroidectomy), to arthritic (vertebral fusion or disc herniation repair). www.mainlineent.com.
