Dr. Ganly has special expertise in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors in the head and neck area including tumors of the mouth, throat, larynx (voicebox), esophagus, sinuses, thyroid gland, salivary glands, head and neck skin cancer and melanoma. His surgical expertise has been developed with his training in otolaryngology, general surgery, and plastic surgery, giving him the full repertoire of skills necessary to treat head and neck tumors.

In addition to traditional, open surgery, Dr. Ganly has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery. One area of expertise is using transoral endoscopic laser surgery to remove tumors of the larynx and pharynx. This type of surgery is performed through an endoscope inserted in a patient’s mouth; the tumor is then removed using a special laser. This technique has several advantages over traditional open surgery. It involves no incisions on the neck, meaning that speech and swallowing function are preserved. In many cases these procedures can be done as an outpatient.
