Physicians and researchers in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology specialize in diseases and disorders of the head and neck, including melanoma.
Mayo Clinic has one of the largest otorhinolaryngology practices in the world, with more than 40 specialists providing care to patients in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.
These specialists have extensive experience in the treatment of mucosal melanomas of the nasal and oral cavity. Otorhinolaryngology research at Mayo Clinic has led to advancements in such surgical treatments as through-the-mouth (transoral) laser microsurgery, transoral robotic surgery, and small blood vessel (microvascular) head and neck reconstruction surgery.
