Mark F. Marzouk has joined the School of Medicine’s Department of Surgery as Assistant Professor, Division of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. He will focus his clinical practice on the treatment of cancers of the head and neck, as well as disorders of the salivary glands, with an emphasis on minimally invasive endoscopic treatment.
Marzouk has trained in the newest techniques in minimally invasive and endoscopic treatment of head and neck disease. Through the Division’s Ear, Nose, and Throat Service, he is initiating a new program in salivary endoscopy, the first such program on Long Island. Salivary endoscopy allows for the removal of salivary gland stones and relief of another condition called salivary duct stenosis (narrowing). Both conditions cause discomfort and problems with swallowing. By treating these conditions with salivary endoscopy, the salivary gland does not have to be removed. Sparing the salivary gland is one of the major benefits associated with this procedure.
“Because of his varied surgical skills, Dr. Marzouk will contribute significantly to expanding many of our otolaryngology–head and neck surgery clinical services,” says Todd K. Rosengart, Chair of the Department of Surgery.
Part of Marzouk’s practice will also include endoscopic treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disease; treatment of disorders of the nose, sinuses, and skull base tumors via minimally invasive approaches; and treatment of disorders of the voice and swallowing, as well as management of obstructive sleep apnea.
Marzouk comes to Stony Brook from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center where he was Chief Resident in Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. He received his medical degree with surgical training in 2001 from the prestigious Ain-Shams University School of Medicine in Cairo, Egypt. He then completed his internship in general surgery at North Shore University Hospital–Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
Following his internship, Marzouk spent a year as a research fellow investigating head and neck carcinogenesis at the Northport VA Medical Center, under the direction of his current Stony Brook colleague Ghassan J. Samara, Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.
