Dr. Miles, a renowned expert in the areas of head and neck oncology, microvascular reconstructive surgery, and robotic surgery, joined Northwell Health in 2021 as the vice chair of otolaryngology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC).

Before joining Northwell, Dr. Miles spent 11 years at Mount Sinai Health System, where he served as co-chief of the division of head and neck cancer surgery in the department of otolaryngology for the last seven years of his tenure there. He was also director of the Head and Neck Oncology-Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Program, vice chair of clinical research, and professor of otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine. For his dedication to teaching and mentorship of fellows, residents, and medical students, Dr. Miles was twice named faculty of the year.

In addition to his medical and academic pursuits, Dr. Miles has been the principal investigator and co-investigator in numerous National Institutes of Health-funded studies and interventional clinical trials related to head and neck oncology, and robotic and reconstructive surgery.

As a leading authority in his field, Dr. Miles has been invited to lecture both nationally and internationally and has published extensively in peer-reviewed literature.
