Tracheostomy and Laryngectomy

Tracheostomy

A tracheostomy is where an opening (stoma) is created at the front of your neck so a tube can be inserted into the windpipe (trachea) to help you breathe.

Laryngectomy

A laryngectomy involves the removal of the larynx and separation of the airway from the mouth, nose and oesophagus. An opening (stoma) is then created at the front of your neck so a tube can be inserted into the windpipe (trachea) to help you breathe.
