Personal profile

Research Interests

The treatment of Head and Neck Cancer challenges the oncologic and reconstructive skills of the surgeon as no other. Only through an experienced team approach can the patients recieve optimal disease control and functional and cosmetic results that allow them to resume their occupational and social roles in society. This has been my passion for over twenty five years.
