Mass. Eye and Ear’s location — directly next door to Mass General Hospital — allows surgeons from the Head and Neck Oncology Division to work closely with 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.

All four of our head and neck surgeons have completed fellowship training in microvascular surgery, an advanced technique in which the surgeon uses free tissue transfer to reconstruct the head and neck area to optimize function and appearance.
