The Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Division is committed to fulfilling Stony Brook’s mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.
Participation in our clinical trials is always completely voluntary, and never interferes with the normal standards for patient care.
Our clinical trials enable us to use, in addition to established therapies, the newest and most advanced technologies and treatments — long before they are available to other physicians.
The Division’s research programs are focused on novel approaches to optimizing surgical outcomes, as well as other treatment strategies to improve patient care, such as combining surgery with drug therapy.
Patients participate in our clinical trials only after they (or their parents) receive a complete explanation of their options from their surgeon and surgical team.
For information about our current clinical trials, please email our department administrator John M. Hutter, MBA, MS, or call him at 631-638-2326.
