Newly Hired Chief of the Division of Head and Neck Surgery at University Hospital of Brooklyn at SUNY Downstate, Director of Microvascular Surgery program within Department of Otolaryngology. Dr. Cannady graduated the Otolaryngology Residency Program at The Head and Neck Institute at Cleveland Clinic and then completed a one-year fellowship in Microvascular Surgery at Oregon Health Sciences University. After spending two and a half years in a busy head and neck practice in Rochester, NY, he joined the Downstate community and Department of Otolaryngology this past March to revitalize the head and neck surgery program at UHB. He is the author or coauthor on 27 scientific publications and four textbook chapters, including chapters in “Bailey’s” on complications of free flap surgery and reconstructive options after chemoradiation failure. His advanced training and passion for improving patient outcomes through reconstruction allow him to offer the most up to date rehabilitative options after cancer surgery. These techniques and advances have improved speech, swallowing, and appearance for patients undergoing cancer removal.
