Anthony J. Anfuso, M.d. Head and Neck Cancer Surgeon

About

Dr. Anfuso received his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He then completed his Otolaryngology residency at West Virginia University. He completed his fellowship at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology and Microvascular Reconstruction.

His practice is dedicated exclusively to the surgical treatment of tumors of the head and neck including malignant and benign tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid, neck, mouth, throat, larynx, salivary glands, and skin. He performs transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for treatment of tonsil and base of tongue cancer. He also performs reconstructive surgery of complex defects of the head and neck, including microvascular reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Anfuso has a particular interest in the surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid disease. He performs over 300 thyroid and parathyroid surgeries per year including complex cases such as revision surgery and thyroid cancer surgery requiring removal of neck lymph nodes and other involved structures. He also performs in-office thyroid and parathyroid ultrasound and preoperative vocal cord assessment.

With his wonderful wife, Mary Frances, a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, Dr. Anfuso has twins, Luke and Samantha, born in December 2019. They currently occupy most of his free time outside of work.
