To provide better treatment to the cancer patients Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya Cancer Centre (MPMMCC) and Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital (HBCH) have started Microlaryngeal laser surgery for the patients suffering from vocal cord cancer. Microlaryngeal laser surgery is used to treat vocal cord cancer, leukoplakia, polyp cancer, and early oral cancer lesions.

Dr. Aseem Mishra, in-charge of Head and Neck Cancer Department, MPMMCC and HBCH said "The biggest feature of Micro laryngeal laser surgery is that the patient does not have to undergo open surgery, which reduces hospital stay after the surgery. At the same time, this surgery is cost and time effective and the success rate of this surgery is 90-95 % provided patients approach us on early stage.”
