    Niels Kokot, MD, serves as assistant professor of otolaryngology and the residency program director in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.

    Dr. Kokot is trained in the new technique of Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS), a minimally invasive technique allowing for the treatment of many head and neck tumors without requiring traditional open approaches.

    Dr. Kokot’s clinical specialties encompass all aspects of head and neck surgery, including the management of tumors in the oral cavity, larynx, pharynx, skull base, salivary glands, and thyroid gland, as well as microvascular surgery. He has a particular interest in conservation surgery of the larynx, which is designed to treat cancers of the larynx (voice box) without sacrificing speech or requiring permanent tracheostomy.
