A Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology, 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 transoral robotic surgery (TORS) - at the Head and Neck Institute, providing patients with state-of-the-art care for head and neck diseases and complex oral maxillofacial conditions. Additionally, he is Director of the Head and Neck Oncology – Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
A recognized expert in the field of head and neck oncology and robotic surgery, Dr. Miles has lectured both nationally and internationally on these topics, and published extensively in peer-reviewed head and neck literature. He is a member of the Tisch Cancer Institute, an NCI accredited cancer center, and is the Principal Investigator for several clinical trials, including the Sinai Robotic Surgery Trial (SIRS), which examines the role of robotic surgery for HPV-related head and neck cancer.
Dr. Miles’ clinical interests encompass oncologic head and neck surgery, reconstructive surgery and oral/maxillofacial surgery/trauma. One of his primary research focuses is the MOUTH (Men/Women Offering Understanding of Throat HPV) study, which aims to better understand how risk factors, such as smoking, affect oral HPV infection rates and how the infection can persist over time. A collaborative investigation with Johns Hopkins University, this Head and Neck Cancer Research Program study is the first of its kind offering estimates of long-term oral HPV history and insights regarding the biologic and behavioral risk factors of the infection. Patients in participating in this research can email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
