Care Philosophy

I feel very blessed to have a profession that allows me to serve patients with both cancerous and non-cancerous diseases of the head and neck. As a head and neck surgeon I carefully weigh the risks and benefits of treatment working with our team to maximize the chance for cure while maintaining the highest quality of life. As a physician my approach to patient care includes addressing one's physical emotional psychosocial and spiritual needs and well-being. My research endeavors strive to improve the care we provide to patients with head and neck cancers. I have a research focus on tumor immunotherapy. I am active in addressing global health needs being involved with regular humanitarian mission trips throughout the world. I am also active in training the next generation of surgeons that are able to address and solve challenges in an ethical and virtuous way. I have along with my colleagues developed and instituted a virtue-based approach to residency training that will meet this need. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and three boys in a variety of activities.Read more
