Our staff includes two surgeons with fellowship training in advanced surgical techniques, including laryngeal preservation surgery, transoral laser microsurgery, and microvascular reconstructive surgery.

The approach to care for head and neck cancer patients at Tripler is multidisciplinary and includes specialists in head and neck oncologic and microvascular reconstructive surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, neuroradiology, oral surgery, speech therapy and nutrition care.  Outpatient care is coordinated by the service Clinic Care Manager, Ms. Suzanne LeClaire, M.S., R.N.  Inpatient care is facilitated by a Critical Pathway for the care of head & neck surgery patients.  A multidisciplinary Head & Neck Tumor Board meets biweekly to plan the management of all cases.
