The head and neck are the most difficult anatomical areas for surgical procedures. The difficulty lies not only in the fact that vital anatomical structures are located there, but also in the social and communicative functions of the head and neck organs. These circumstances dictate the need for the development and implementation of technologies that would allow a functionally sparing treatment and contribute to the reduction of the rehabilitation period length. One of the solutions is the progress in the head and neck surgery using a carbon dioxide laser.
