I am an expert head and neck surgeon who specializes in the treatment of benign and malignant head and neck tumors. My areas of special interest are in skin cancers (such as melanomas), salivary gland tumors and tongue cancer. I perform more than 270 major head and neck operations (including reconstructions) every year. In 2017, I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction.

After graduating from medical school, I completed five years of head and neck surgery residency at the University of Michigan. I then completed an additional year of advanced training (fellowship) at the OSUCCC – James specializing in the management of head and neck cancers.

I train future surgeons and teach medical students in my roles as associate residency program director, director of Medical Student Education and assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery.

I am very interested in science and research, which directly impact patient care. I study how much tissue needs to be removed for each different type of cancer (known as surgical margin), reconstruction involving tissue transplantation, and genes that predict how skin cancers spread. The OSUCCC – James gives me the resources to be able to further my research in order to help more patients, and I am proud to work here.
