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.

Surgery on the neck: There are a number of different structures in the neck, and so there are several different specialties that operate in the neck. These include plastic surgeons, general surgeons, ear nose and throat surgeons, spinal surgeons, etc. Thank you for your question.
