David Michael Neskey
Dr. David M. Neskey is an oncologic surgeon specializing in cancers of the head and neck. Originally from Massachusetts, Dr. Neskey received his medical degree from Albany Medical College with a distinction in research, and completed a residency in otolaryngology head and neck surgery at the University of Miami. He then completed a fellowship in head and neck surgical oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. This two-year training in basic science research was followed by a year of additional training in the surgical management of head and neck cancers.
Dr. Neskey’s clinical focus is on patients with benign and malignant neoplasias of the head and neck, including oral cavity, oropharyngeal, and laryngeal lesions; advanced melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers; and lesions of the salivary glands, thyroid, and parathyroids. His specific interests are squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity and salivary gland neoplasms. Dr. Neskey has published more than 20 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, most of which are focused on the molecular pathways and genomic alterations associated with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. He received the K12 John Calabresi clinical & translational oncology training program grant to study the mechanisms of invasion and metastases in head and neck cancer. He is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is a member of the American Head and Neck Society.
