The Dietetic team will assess you prior to surgery too. It is important that you are able to maintain a good intake of calories, proteins and nutrients after your surgery. Sometimes this can be difficult and you will need help with supplements. The dietician will assess your weight and your daily requirements to ensure that you recover as quickly as possible after your surgery.

Our senior Dietician Rachel Skelly has provided a comprehensive information leaflet on all aspects of nutritional support whilst having head and neck cancer surgery.
