Personal profile

Research Interests

Within the field of Otolaryngology, my area of interest and expertise is in head and neck surgery specifically for cancer. I am particularly interested in trans-oral endoscopic removal of tumors, as well as reconstructive surgery following tumor removal including free tissue transfer. I have also expanded surgical services to include trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS) at Northwestern, by which tumors can be removed through the mouth with robotic assistance.
