John has just returned from Hawaii where he was involved with the head and neck surgery section of the meeting. His presentations included office based thyroid and neck ultrasound, nerve preservation in thyroid surgery, new published guidelines in the management of thyroid nodules and cancer and transoral surgery in throat cancer. John also chaired a session on salivary gland surgery and a debate on the role of immunisation in the prevention of HPV related throat cancer.

John has just returned from a course in Atlanta and Philadelphia on trans oral robotic surgery TORS he will use this technology in treating patients with HPV related oropharyngeal (Throat) cancers. These are the most common mucosal cancers now seen in NZ and the incidence has doubled over the last 2 decades. The deVinci Robot is based at Southern Cross North Harbour and patients will be treated by John there.
