Boston, Mass. — Jeremy Richmon, M.D., a board-certified otolaryngologist and fellowship-trained head and neck surgeon specializing in head and neck cancer, microvascular reconstruction and robotic surgery has joined the Head and Neck Oncology Division at Mass. Eye and Ear. He is currently accepting new patients at the main campus of Mass. Eye and Ear (243 Charles St., Boston).

”I feel so honored to be welcomed back to Mass. Eye and Ear, which has always been a leader in the field of otolaryngology and has an unparalleled track record of patient care, clinical innovation, and resident education,” Dr. Richmon said. “The inspiration of working here during my fellowship 9 years ago has remained a powerful draw and I couldn’t be more excited to rejoin the team.”

Prior to arriving at Mass. Eye and Ear, Dr. Richmon was a faculty member at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. A pioneer in minimally-invasive robotic techniques in the head and neck, he developed and directed an internationally-renowned head and neck robotic surgery program at Johns Hopkins, working across disciplines by collaborating with engineers and computer scientists to bring the next generation of robotics into the clinical realm. In 2009, he was the first surgeon to preform transoral robotic surgery at Johns Hopkins. Also at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Richmon launched the robotic thyroid surgery program and is the first surgeon in the United States to perform transoral robotic thyroidectomy, using a technique he helped develop.

Dr. Richmon’s clinical interests include head and neck cancer, skull base surgery, robotic surgery and microvascular reconstruction of the head and neck. He also pursues research interests in microvascular reconstructive techniques of head and neck defects, robotic surgery and minimally invasive approaches to head and neck cancer.

A graduate of the University of Rochester School of Medicine, Dr. Richmon completed a general surgery internship and an otolaryngology residency at the University of California, San Diego. He received his fellowship training in head and neck oncology and microvascular reconstruction and skull base surgery at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School. He actively participates in resident and fellow education and has developed residency training curricula teaching head and neck robotic surgery.
