Resection of tumor with coratid artery involvement.

I have had multiple occurrences of previously benign tumors in the salivary glands and associated regions. I have recently been diagnosed with another. CT scans showed additional tumors in lungs. While chemotherapy will be used, the head and neck surgeon is unwilling to consider resection as there is involvement with the coratid artery. I read an article that discussed resection enblock of the mass with coratid replacement with a vein from the legs etc.. I understand the need for chemo, but wanted to explore options should chemo prove inefficient. I also understand the need for two surgeons. Does anyone know of any center which performs this type of procedure? Enblock resection of tumor with coratid artery involment. Thanks.
