More than 200 endocrine cases are performed annually by head and neck surgeons in the department. Additionally, patients with complex endocrine tumors benefit from collaboration between head and neck surgeons, endocrinologists, interventional radiologists and oncologists.
Head and neck cancers
Surgeons treat patients with benign and malignant tumors in the neck, larynx, mouth, tongue and head. They routinely perform complex surgery that requires coordination with neuro, reconstructive, vascular and oculoplastic surgeons. Mayo Clinic in Florida is one of a few centers in the country that also offers robotic surgery for certain head and neck procedures.
Otology and neuro-otology — ear problems
Mayo Clinic otologists address diseases and treatments of the ear and related structures. These specialists collaborate regularly with audiologists and the Vestibular/Balance Lab to treat patients with issues such as hearing loss, facial nerve disorders, cholesteatoma, ear drum perforations and surgical treatments for acoustic neuromas.
Rhinology — Sinus Center
Doctors in the center are considered pioneers in the field due to their contributions to the development of a number of surgical devices and procedures that are now broadly used in sinus practice. Whether you have a common problem or an unusual condition, you benefit from collaboration between Mayo Clinic's internists and surgeons, who use the latest diagnostic equipment and minimally invasive procedures to address your sinus and nasal problems.
