Biography

    A Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Miles is co-Chief of the Division of Head and Neck Cancer Surgery at the Department of Otolaryngology at the Mount Sinai Health System. He has extensive expertise in head and neck oncology/microvascular surgery – including robotic surgery - at the Multidisciplinary Center for Head and Neck Cancer, providing patients with state-of-the-art care for head and neck diseases and complex oral maxillofacial conditions.

    His clinical interests encompass oncologic head and neck surgery, reconstructive surgery and oral/maxillofacial surgery/trauma. One of his primary areas of concentration is the Advaxis/Window of Opportunity HPV-related Tonsil and Tongue Base Cancer Vaccine clinical trial, for which he is Principal Investigator at the Icahn School of Medicine’s Head and Neck Cancer Research Program.

    Patients with HPV-related tonsil and tongue cancers interested in participating in this clinical trial can explore more by watching Mount Sinai’s Advaxis Clinical Trial video  or by reading Dr. Miles’ blog about the Advaxis trial.
