Overview of Dr. Patel

I am an Assistant Member in the Department of Head and Neck–Endocrine Oncology. I received MD degree at the College of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan and then concurrently completed a Residency in the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, and a Master of Science degree in Surgery at Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. I am board-certified in Otolaryngology by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada. He went on to complete the Head and Neck Microvascular Reconstruction Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio.

I am a member of the American Head and Neck Society, North American Skull Base Society and Disparities Committee at NRG. Dr. Patel’s clinical interests include the management of oral cavity/oropharynx/larynx cancers, salivary gland neoplasms, thyroid cancers, reconstruction of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer defects in the head and neck region, and sinonasal cancers (cancers arising from nose and sinuses).

My clinical research interests focus on the development of transoral robotic surgery and improvement in microvascular reconstructive surgeries for head and neck cancers.

I have ongoing projects and publications in cancer care delivery including virtual health and real time patient monitoring to design just-in-time interventions to improve patient outcomes. My translational research focuses on developing biomarkers for use in genomic analyses that predict the impact of therapeutic interventions on clinical and quality-of-life outcomes.
