First Transoral Robotic Surgery in Queensland
ENT/ Head and Neck Surgeons at Greenslopes Private Hospital are the first in Queensland to perform transoral robotic surgery to remove mouth and throat (oropharyngeal) tumours.
Transoral robotic surgery is a new minimally invasive approach performed through the mouth (transorally) providing an alternative to what can be highly invasive surgery and high dose chemoradiation therapy for the diseases of the head and neck.

Former defence community members across the country are encouraged to focus on their physical and mental health and well-being.
