Surgeries We Perform

Removal of Neck Masses

It is not uncommon for children to have various cysts, growths, lymph nodes, which are abnormal in the neck area. 99% of the time these lesions are benign and can be diagnosed and excised with an outpatient surgical procedure. At the Pediatric Ear, Nose, & Throat Clinic, these procedures are performed as an outpatient usually with the parents or caregiver in the room when the child is incubated by anesthesia. Typically these procedures take less than 30 minutes and the recovery room time is less than 30 minutes. The surgery typically has very little blood loss and the patient can be followed postoperatively on an outpatient basis. For added comfort, the Pediatric Ear, Nose, & Throat Clinic gives all parents Dr. Crews' cell phone number for direct access postoperatively. If you suspect your child has a neck mass or a tumor and needs an evaluation, please call Pediatric Ear, Nose, & Throat Clinic for consultation.
