US. AMERICAN STORIES Supports Research
When Mike Toth was diagnosed with tonsil and throat cancer, he and his family turned to Daniel Deschler, M.D., F.A.C.S. at Mass. Eye and Ear to save his life. Under Dr. Deschler’s expert care Mike’s life was saved three times and today he is cancer free. It has been a difficult journey and over the course of his treatment Mike has lost his ability to speak and eat. Regardless, today Mike and his family live life to its fullest and serve as an inspiration to Dr. Deschler and his team to conduct world-leading research designed to improve outcomes for patients with head and neck cancer.
The Toth Family is enormously grateful to Dr. Deschler and would like to invite friends of US. AMERICAN STORIES to consider supporting Dr. Deschler’s research to help save lives and enable others with head and neck cancer to experience all life has to offer.
Dr. Deschler is a Professor in Otology and Laryngology at Harvard Medical School, Director of Massachusetts Eye and Ear’s Division of Head and Neck Surgery and Director of the Norman Knight Hyperbaric Medicine Center.
Patients come from across the country to seek Dr. Deschler’s expertise. He is highly regarded by his patients for his multi-disciplinary and human approach to the care he provides.
In addition to his commitment to providing the highest level of care possible, Dr. Deschler is dedicated to improving upon that care through innovative research to preserve and restore patients’ ability to speak, eat and their appearance. His projects are focused in the following areas:
- Promoting and evaluating successful voice restoration after laryngeal cancer surgery.
- Introduction and evaluation of innovative reconstruction for the treatment of advanced head and neck cancer.
- Defining risk factor for infection after head and neck surgery and finding ways to decrease these complications.
- Identifying disparities in head and neck cancer and its treatment in Native Americans.
