    Mark Swanson, MD is a fellowship trained head and neck surgeon. After completing medical school at the Ohio State University, he entered a residency in Otolaryngology at University of Southern California. He continued his training with a fellowship in cancer and reconstructive surgery at the University of Miami, and returned to USC to join the faculty at Keck Medical Center. His expertise is in treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the mouth, throat, salivary glands, neck, and thyroid gland. He utilizes advanced robotic, organ preservation, and microvascular reconstructive techniques to maximize quality of life after treatment.

    Dr. Swanson works in a multi-disciplinary team including surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and speech/swallow therapists to provide complete care for head and neck diseases.

    In addition to treating patients, Dr. Swanson has a research interest in oncologic and quality of life outcomes in head and neck cancers. He focuses on swallowing and voice outcomes after cancer treatments, and is working to provide optimal cancer outcomes while preserving unaffected tissues.
