Efficacy of Electrical Stimulation for Dysphagia in Head & Neck Cancer Patients
Role: Principal Investigator
This multi-institutional clinical trial will compare electrical stimulation plus aggressive swallowing exercise to sham electrical stimulation with aggressive swallow exercise to determine the efficacy of e-stim in treating dysphagia in patients who have received radiation therapy for head and neck cancer.

As outgrowths of this research, I am collaborating with several faculty here at BMC to determine how we can best predict and prevent dysphagia in patients undergoing treatment for head & neck cancer.
