Areas of surgical specialization in Head and Neck Surgery
Head and Neck Research, Head and Neck Surgeon, Reconstructive Head & Neck Surgery
As a head and neck surgical oncologist, my major focus is the treatment within the head and neck region, affecting the face, neck, mouth and throat. At USF, I help lead a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals, that develop individualized cancer treatment plans, for each of our patients.
I have extensive surgical training and experience, which includes advanced sub-specialization within my field of otolaryngology. This allows me to perform a wide array of surgical procedures and particularly focus on reconstructive surgery. This entails taking body parts from one area and transplanting them into the head and neck. This helps maintain a more normal physical appearance and optimizes speech/swallowing function, which can be impacted by cancer or other maladies. I’m able to not only treat a person’s disease, but also help to optimize their quality of life long after treatment is complete.
In addition to cancer, I also focus on other complex head and neck conditions, such as those affecting the salivary glands, thyroid, and trachea. At USF, I also engage in various teaching and research activities, which enhance my ability to provide state-of-the-art care to all my patients.
