I’m a Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. My focus is on minimally invasive head and neck surgeries including transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and their reconstruction. I was named to the Castle Connolly list of "America's Top Doctors" from 2009-2018 and have been rated among the top cancer doctors and otolaryngologists for patient satisfaction in the nation.

I’m so proud of to be part of the OSUCCC – James team working toward a cancer-free world. I believe with our advanced research methods and individualized patient treatment approach we are poised to accomplish that lofty goal.

I established one of the first TORS programs worldwide at OSU and performed the first transaxillary robotic thyroidectomy in Central Ohio. I’m currently conducting clinical trials that compare the quality of life benefits of the TORS technique with the traditional non-surgical options.

As a charter member of the Society of Robotic Surgery, I’m passionate about promoting the advantages of robotic surgery practices and making advancements that will greatly impact our patients here at the OSUCCC – James.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Ozer has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
