About Scott Troob

Scott H. Troob M.D joins the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery as a dual-fellowship trained Head and Neck Oncologist, Microvascular and Facial Plastic Surgeon who will spearhead the development of a head and neck free tissue transfer program within the department. In addition to treating the full spectrum of benign and cancerous disorders of the head and neck, Dr. Troob performs reconstructive surgery for patients following head and neck cancer treatment, facial trauma, and facial paralysis.

Dr. Troob attended Jefferson Medical College where he was selected as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and graduated summa cum laude in 2009. He went on to complete his Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Residency in 2014 at NYU, where he was selected into the Gold Humanism Society in recognition of his excellence in humanistic patient care, leadership, compassion, and dedication to service. Following Residency, he left New York for Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), where he completed a fellowship in Advanced Head and Neck Oncology, Robotic, and Skull Base Surgery in 2015. He subsequently completed his second fellowship in Microvascular and Facial Plastic Surgery at OHSU in 2016.

His clinical interests include the treatment of benign conditions of the head and neck as well as the medical and surgical treatment of cancers of the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx, sinonasal tract, skull base, and skin. Dr. Troob focuses on minimally invasive surgery including transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for human papilloma virus (HPV) related tumors of the oropharynx (palate, tonsil, base of tongue), and sialoendoscopy for benign conditions of the salivary glands. Additionally, Dr. Troob specializes in microvascular free flap reconstruction of the head and neck following cancer surgery, as well as facial reanimation surgery in patients suffering from facial paralysis.

His research interests include the functional and aesthetic outcomes of patients undergoing microvascular free flap reconstruction, as well as developing novel techniques of monitoring perfusion of free flaps in the postoperative setting. He is the author of many peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and has regularly presented his research at national meetings.
