If you ever need surgery to remove a cancerous lesion on your head or neck, you will likely be cared for by an otolaryngologist. This type of doctor specializes in treating the diseases and disorders of the ear, nose and throat (ENT) and the related structures of the head and neck. 

Our Head and Neck surgeons specialize in all aspects of head and neck cancer, and they offer comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of diseases and disorders of the ears, nose, nasal sinuses, oral cavity (mouth), pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box) and neck.

Head & Neck Surgery Team

The Head and Neck Surgery Group includes specialists in all aspects of head and neck oncology and has a particular emphasis on restoration of quality of life in the rehabilitation of patients with tumors. The head and neck surgical team works closely with speech and swallowing therapists, psychologists and nutritionists to treat and rehabilitate patients with skull-base lesions and head and neck tumors.

The department offers nationally recognized ear surgeons and audiologic services for the management of hearing loss. Advanced neurotology procedures such as acoustic nerve surgery and cochlear implantation are provided. Many of our physicians are subspecialists in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well.
