Neck-stretching in symplectic topology was first introduced by Bourgeois et al. and became a widely used technique in the field. Charest-Woodward used neck-stretching techniques to study Floer theoretic invariants of a Lagrangian which doesn't intersect the neck. In this talk I will show how techniques in Charest-Woodward's can be generalized to a class of lagrangians which meets the neck. I will also introduce the notion of local mutation and apply the neck-stretching technique to prove an invariance result of Lagrangian Floer Homology under local mutations of Lagrangians.
