Profile Headshot


Scott H. Troob M.D is a double-boarded Head and Neck Oncologist & Microvascular and Facial Plastic Surgeon nationally recognized for providing integrated oncologic and reconstructive care. He currently serves as the Division Chief of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. During his time at Columbia, he developed the Head and Neck Free Tissue Transfer and Facial Reanimation programs and has earned a reputation for technical excellence and compassionate patient care. He specializes in the treatment of benign conditions of the head and neck as well as the medical and surgical treatment of cancers of the skin, oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx, hypopharynx, sinonasal tract, salivary glands, and skull base. Additionally, Dr. Troob employs state-of-the-art tissue repair and microsurgical techniques to perform reconstructive surgery for patients following head and neck cancer treatment, facial trauma, and facial paralysis.

Dr. Troob is a proud graduate of Columbia (CC ’04) where he received his undergraduate BA in Biology and served as the Captain of the Men’s Swimming and Diving Team. He then attended Jefferson Medical College where he graduated summa cum laude and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He went on to complete his Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Residency in 2014 at NYU, where he was selected for 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, & Skull Base Surgery in 2015. He remained at OHSU to complete a second fellowship in Microvascular and Facial Plastic Surgery in 2016.

Beyond his interest in oncology and reconstruction, Dr. Troob treats a variety of disorders of the salivary glands, focusing on minimally invasive procedures (sialoendoscopy) which allow for treatment of strictures and stones without external incisions.
