Block Dissection of Cervical Lymph Nodes

blog

Block Dissection of Cervical Lymph Nodes is a neck surgery to remove the cancerous lymph nodes in the neck region. This procedure ensures that cancer does not spread to the remaining parts of the body through the lymph fluid which transports white blood cells across the body. In Block dissection, few lymph nodes are removed and the nerve, muscle and blood vessel regions of the neck are not affected.
