Cordectomy

Cordectomy

A cordectomy is the surgical removal of part or all of the vocal cords. It can be performed using an endoscopic laser, where a special type of light is focused on the cancer through a small tube. Cordectomy can also be performed via laryngofissue, the surgical opening of the larynx by an incision through the thyroid.
