Our multispecialty team of otolaryngologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists work together to offer patients compassionate, cutting-edge head and neck cancer care. The Vanderbilt Head and Neck Surgery team also offer patients surgical options for head and neck conditions and vocal paralysis that were pioneered in Vanderbilt's robust research labs.
Patient Care Excellence
The Vanderbilt Head and Neck Surgery team is internationally recognized for innovative treatment options for rare diseases, such as paranasal sinus cancer, microvascular reconstruction of the head and neck, and a novel surgical approach to Zenker's diverticulum. Vanderbilt is one of few medical centers in the country that performs a complex surgery to remove rare vagal schwannomas tumors yet preserve nerve function in the head and neck.
Our team provides access to a variety of clinical trials for head and neck cancer at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. Vanderbilt-Ingram is designated as a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our team is committed to continually exploring new and innovative treatments.
Vanderbilt Head and Neck Surgery also offers a highly sought after clinical fellowship. Our fellows receive experience with rare tumors of the head and neck, general head and neck surgery, reconstructive surgery, and more.
