Abstract: Primary treatment modality of oropharyngeal carcinoma is non surgical. However minor salivary gland tumors warrants surgery whichever site may it be, owing to its radioresistance. Conventional surgery for these tumors in oropharynx has significant morbidity due to mandibulotomy, tracheostomy, prolonged hospital stay etc. Minimal access surgery avoids these factors, making it a day care procedure.
