Head and neck sarcomas are a group of tumours that require particularly careful management for the best results. Both soft tissue and bone tumours can arise, of a wide range of types, frequently needing complex combination treatments. This requires close working of sarcoma oncologists with head and neck surgeons. The sarcoma oncologists sub-specialising in head and neck sarcomas regularly attend the weekly head and neck MDT Meeting to discuss the large number of head and neck sarcomas treated.


KalavrezosNicholas.jpgI am a Head and Neck Reconstructive Surgeon and the Lead Clinician in the Head and Neck Centre at University College London Hospital with a background in Oral and Maxillo-Facial surgery.  I am also the Lead Head and Neck Sarcoma Surgeon for the London Sarcoma Service. My clinical practice includes major surgery for the head and neck with a special interest in bone sarcomas.

My research interests include applications of “tissue engineering”. I am a founding member of the “Centre for Reconstructive Surgery” at University College London. I hold a Senior Lecturer post at the same Institution. I have joint research projects in the Nanotechnology Lab of UCL on “tissue engineered bio-scaffolding” aiming to replace defects of the head and neck with tissue–engineered based micro-vascular flap reconstruction.

I give lectures regularly nationally and internationally and hold the position of the Secretary General of the European Association for Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery (EACMFS).
