To that end, our facultystrives to be on the cutting edge of the surgical management of head and neck cancer as well as in our reconstructive procedures.

Our goals are to provide the best possible surgical outcome and to improve the quality of life for our patients. The head and neck tumor board fosters an interdisciplinary approach to treatment. The board consists of surgeons, radiation oncologists, neuroradiologists and speech pathologists who are dedicated to the care of head and neck patients. Weekly meetings are held to discuss cases and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.

Our faculty are involved in training fellows in all aspects of head and neck surgery as well as complex microvascular reconstructive surgery. We strive to improve the care of head and neck cancer through collaborative basic and clinical research projects. The faculty also work with community physicians to provide excellent care for patients with head and neck cancer and those needing complex reconstructions.
