Dr. Tan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tan "I completed my residency training in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, specializing in surgeries of the face and neck. I then pursued an additional year of subspecialty training in Facial and Reconstructive surgery, focusing in both complex reconstruction for facial skin cancer, scar revision and trauma, as well as aesthetic surgery of the face. The scope of my practice include the full breadth of general otolaryngology, with interest in thyroid and other face/neck mass surgery, diagnosis and surgical treatment of skin cancers, management of sinonasal disease, snoring and sleep surgery, functional septorhinoplasty, and management of head and neck skin cancer. Consultation and procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, can take place at both Kapi'olani and Pali Momi hospital. "
