The First Total Laryngectomy At KUTRRH
Early this year the ENT team at KUTRRH led by Dr Getachew Beza, a head and neck surgeon, performed the first total laryngectomy, which is an operation to remove the entire voice box for advanced cancers of the voice box. The patient was a 66-year-old male patient with stage four voice box cancer. The patient has since been discharged with good outcomes and continues with follow-ups as an outpatient.
