Laryngectomy is the removal of the larynx along with the separation of the airway from the mouth, nose, and oesophagus. Depending on the severity of the underlying cause, the specialist makes an incision in the neck to remove the larynx, lymph nodes, and a part of the pharynx. Afterwards, they create a permanent hole in front of the trachea to link to the lungs to breathe. An experienced ENT surgeon should be preferred for the procedure. The success rate for the treatment remains around 40-60% depending on the stage of laryngeal and hypo-pharyngeal cancer. It takes around 1-2 weeks for a complete recovery post-surgery with a couple of days spend in the ICU.
