History of the Department

  • 1929

    Crowe and Hart
    Formation of the Duke Department of Surgery

    The Division of Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences started as one of the original divisions of the newly formed Department of Surgery of Duke University Medical School.  

    The formation of the Duke Department of Surgery was partly influenced by the specialty of Otolaryngology, as Dr. Samuel Crowe, Chair of Otolaryngology at Johns Hopkins Hospital supported his colleague Dr. Darryl Hart’s decision to assume the Chair of Surgery at the newly formed Duke University School of Medicine upon completion of his surgical training at Johns Hopkins.

  • 1930

    Dr. Eagle
    Dr. Eagle Joins the Department

    Dr. Hart selected Dr. Watt W. Eagle from the Otolaryngology faculty at Johns Hopkins as the second full-time faculty member of the newly formed Duke Department of Surgery. Dr. Eagle served as the Division Chief of the combined Otolaryngology and Ophthalmology Division together with Dr. Banks Anderson from 1930 until 1959. At that time, Ophthalmology separated from Surgery to form its own department, leaving Dr. Eagle as the Division Chief for Otolaryngology, a position he held until 1963.

  • 1961

    Division of Urology faculty in 1961
    Dr. Kenan and Dr. Hudson Join

    Two full-time Otolaryngology faculty who were added in 1961, Dr. Patrick Kenan and Dr. William Hudson, would go on to long, influential careers at Duke, including Dr. Hudson’s eventual appointment as Division Chief in 1963, a position he held until 1992.

    Dr. Hudson
    Dr. Hudson

    Dr. Hudson, like Drs. Hart and Eagle, arrived at Duke after completing his training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was responsible for training many future academic otolaryngologists and held national and international leadership roles with the American Otologic, Rhinologic, and Laryngologic Society (AKA the Triological Society) and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

  • 1969

    Growth of the Division of Otolaryngology

    The Division of Otolaryngology experienced further growth, with the addition of Dr. T. Boyce Cole in 1969 and Dr. Joseph Farmer in 1970. Dr. Cole was instrumental in helping to develop the practice responsible for the care and surgical treatment of patients with head and neck malignancies. Dr. Farmer, together with Dr. Kenan, expanded the practice of otologic surgery and helped conduct investigations that would lead to the development of improved auditory aids including, ultimately, the modern cochlear implant. Dr. Farmer’s expertise also included the study and treatment of the effects of barotrauma on the auditory system and led to his active participation with the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. His academic and clinical accomplishments led to his election as President of the American Otologic Society in 1997.

  • 1981

    Fisher
    Melanoma Expert Dr. Fisher Joins

    This practice was further expanded in 1981 with the addition of Dr. Samuel Fisher to the faculty. Dr. Fisher, in collaboration with other members of the Department of Surgery, investigated and improved treatment for patients with melanomas of the head and neck.

  • 1984

    Wilson
    Pioneering Cochlear Implant Research

    The joint Duke/Research Triangle Institute cochlear implant research program—led by Dr. Blake Wilson, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Head and Neck Surgery & Communication Sciences—was created in late 1984 and was one of the first of its kind worldwide. When the program began, people with deafness or severe hearing loss had no practical options for restoring hearing.

    After devices using the speech strategy developed by Dr. Wilson’s team were introduced into clinical practice in the early 1990s, the number of people worldwide using cochlear implants leaped exponentially—from fewer than 10,000 just prior to its introduction to more than 700,000 as of 2021.

    The first cochlear implant surgery was performed at Duke in 1985 by Drs. Farmer and Kenan, marking the beginning of one of the earliest cochlear implant programs in the United States.

    Dr. John McElveen served as the first fellowship-trained neurotologist from 1987 to 1993.

  • 1984

    LEADING IN MULTIDISCIPLINARY CANCER CARE

    In conjunction with Medical Oncology, Plastic Surgery, and Radiation Oncology, the Division of Otolaryngology created the first multidisciplinary cancer clinic at Duke in 1984. Patients were seen by all the relevant specialties and appropriate staging procedures were recommended, after which a treatment plan was formulated.  

  • 1992

    Drs. Sabiston and Richtsmeier
    Dr. William Richtsmeier Becomes Chief

    Upon the retirement of Dr. Hudson as Division Chief, Dr. David Sabiston, Chairman of the Department of Surgery, recruited the new Division Chief, Dr. William Richtsmeier, from Johns Hopkins University, continuing the legacy of surgical leaders from Baltimore. Dr. Richtsmeier would lead the newly named Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery until 1999, a period that would see further faculty and programmatic development.

  • 1992

    Richard Scher
    Otolaryngology Tumor Biology Laboratory Established

    Dr. Richard Scher joined the division from Johns Hopkins University as well, and together with Dr. Richtsmeier helped to establish the Otolaryngology Tumor Biology Laboratory devoted to the investigation of head and neck malignancy, especially squamous cell carcinoma.

    Dr. Scher and Richtsmeier further expanded the emphasis and direction of the multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Treatment program. As a result of the efforts of Dr. Richtsmeier to improve outcomes for patients with head and neck cancer, the division’s first endowed chair, the Richard H. Chaney Sr. Chair in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, was gratefully provided by one of his former patients and awarded to Bill Richtsmeier as the first recipient.

  • 1993

    Debara Tucci
    Dr. Debara Tucci Joins

    Dr. Tucci was recruited to the faculty in 1993. Her efforts led to the expansion of the cochlear implant program started by Drs. Farmer and Kenan, and established laboratory efforts directed toward further understanding of the auditory system.
    Dr. Richard Clendaniel established a vestibular rehabilitation program in the Department and contributed to training physical therapists throughout the Southeast United States and beyond in this important clinical skill set.

  • 1995

    Dr. Witsell
    Dr. David Witsell Joins

    Under Dr. Richtsmeier’s leadership, further programmatic growth took place in the subspecialties of Laryngology and Neuro-otology. Dr. David Witsell joined the faculty in 1995. He expanded the Division’s research efforts by establishing the first and only national surgeon research consortium devoted to the investigation of clinical outcomes in Otolaryngology. This effort was conducted in collaboration with the Duke Clinical Research Institute and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

    Dr. Keenan

    In honor of his mentor Dr. Patrick Kenan, Dr. Witsell established the tradition of giving each faculty member in sequence of employment, the opportunity to invite an influential mentor as the Kenan Lecturer.

    The Duke Voice Care Center (DVCC) was established as the first center of excellence through the vision and leadership of Dr. David Witsell. The Duke Voice Care Center, honoring Dr. Kenan’s legacy, has provided comprehensive care for patients with diseases affecting the functions of speech and swallowing by utilizing a multidisciplinary approach with otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists, and other medical specialists. The DVCC is a nationally recognized resource today and includes community outreach and education for all professionals invested in vocal health.

    Leda Scearce and Gina Vess

    To expand the breadth of clinical and research activity performed by the DVCC, Dr. Seth Cohen was recruited to the faculty after specialty training in Laryngology at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Cohen has become internationally recognized for his clinical outcomes research on speech and swallowing disorders. Speech and Language Pathologists Leda Scearce and Gina Vess oversaw the growth of a skilled interprofessional team.
