Meet the Team

Head and neck oncology team

Our Head and Neck Oncology team works closely with Mass. Eye and Ear and Mass General specialists in radiation and medical oncology, pathology, radiology, oral surgery, speech and language pathology, and other auxiliary healthcare providers to offer a complete range of care for patients with head and neck cancer.

Our team is unique in that each of our surgeons have completed advanced training in head and neck oncology and microvascular surgery, an advanced technique in which the surgeon uses free tissue transfer to reconstruct defects in the head and neck to optimize function and appearance. Combined with expertise in minimally-invasive techniques, robotic surgery, skull-base surgery, voice restoration, and cutaneous malignancies, we are also one of the most experienced and versatile teams in the country.
