Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Assistant Professor of Oncology
Department of Head and Neck Surgery/Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

I am a head and neck cancer surgeon in the department of Head and Neck Surgery/Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.  My specialties include treating cancers of the head and neck (oral, throat/pharyngeal, laryngeal, sinus, skull base, thyroid and parathyroid, skin cancer of the head and neck), reconstruction of head and neck defects (free flap surgery) and transoral robotic surgery (TORS) using the daVinci robot.

I completed a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at West Virginia University where I was able to help treat numerous patients with head and neck cancer.  It was this exposure that ultimately influenced my decision to be a head and neck cancer surgeon.  Because of my desire to treat patients with head and neck cancer, I completed a fellowship (subspecialty training) in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery and Microvascular Reconstruction at the Ohio State University.

At Roswell Park, I am fortunate to be able to work with a great team of physicians and staff to help you in your battle with cancer.  Because we work as a team, we will come up with the best treatment plan for your specific situation, whether that involves surgery or non-surgical options.
