Dr. Joshua Hornig completed both his medical degree and his residency training from the University of Alberta, where he was awarded the prestigious First Class Distinction and Honors in Research title upon graduation.  Following residency, Dr. Hornig completed a highly respected fellowship in Head & Neck Oncology, Facial Plastic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina. 

Upon completion of his fellowship, he joined the Department as an Assistant Professor.  Now, he takes an active role in the instruction of residents as well as mentoring the microvascular fellow in the latest reconstructive techniques.

Dr. Hornig’s particular expertise and interests lie in minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgery (utilizing lasers, advanced video assisted surgery and mini-incisions), facial plastics & microvascular reconstruction and cancers of the head and neck.  He strives to utilize advanced reconstructive techniques to speed recovery and to enhance postoperative function.  His research interests include the use of tissue engineered customized implants to allow improved cosmesis, speech and swallowing outcomes. Additionally, he is active in improving his patient’s overall functional outcome following treatment for cancers of the head and neck.

On a national level, Dr. Hornig is a member of the Facial Plastic and Microvascular Reconstructive Committee for the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation.  Locally, he has created both a thyroid/parathyroid team and a facial plastic & microvascular reconstructive surgical team.
