I specialize in Head and Neck Cancer and Robotic Surgery
My practice is dedicated to surgically treating all types of head and neck cancers. I have been performing Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) since 2010 shortly after its FDA approval for throat cancers, and lecture nationally and internally on this procedure. The other major focus of my practice is advanced head and neck reconstructive surgery to remove tissue from different parts of the body to reconstruct defects. This is typically after large tumor resections or for tissue damage from radiation therapy.
Recently Dr. Ghanem traveled to Turkey as part of a medical mission providing facial reconstructive surgery for Syrian refugees at Al-Amal Hospital. Read about this mission trip.
