ENT & MaxFax

Otorhinolaryngology (Otolaryngology) is the area of medicine that deals with disorders and conditions of the ear, nose, and throat (hence "ENT") region, and related areas of the head and neck.

Head and Neck Surgery was one of the first areas in surgery where lasers found application and transformed clinical care. The carbon dioxide laser (CO2) remains the workhorse in the treatment of disorders of the upper aerodigestive tract in which non-contact, precise and hemostatic surgery is necessary. The role of the CO2 laser has expanded substantially in recent years and now is used to endoscopically remove advanced laryngeal and pharyngeal cancers, which previously required removal via a neck incision. Lasers are used to treat ear disease and cranial base disorders as well. In otosclerosis, which is a fixation of the stapes footplate, “optical drilling” facilitates the precise removal of bone to improve hearing. Lasers are also used to reduce or eradicate vascular lesions and neoplasms in infants, children, and adults that obstruct the airway. As facial plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists also apply various laser wavelengths to resurface the face, reshape cartilage of the ear and nose, and manage vascular malformations. Currently, head and neck surgeons are at the forefront of using minimally invasive approaches such as imaged guided surgery, robotics and lasers to treat diseases within the head, neck, and upper airway.

Oral and Maxillofacial surgery (often just called "MaxFax") is surgery to treat many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and Maxillofacial (jaws and face) region.

The 25W MCO25plus CO2 Laser, or even the higher power 50W MCO50plus CO2 Laser, are ideal systems for many of the applications in ENT or MaxFax Surgery, often used in conjunction with precise Micromanipulators and Surgical Microspcopes. A wide range of accessories is also available.
