Mohamad R. Issa, MD, MS

Dr. Mohamad Issa grew up in Ann Arbor as part of a large Palestinian-American family. He learned the value of community and giving back to others in need, which have been core to his interest in health inequities, both domestically and internationally. This interest has resulted in direct involvement in the ENT presence at the Birmingham Free Clinic in Pittsburgh, as well as multiple internal mission work trips including as a third-year resident. His love for Head and Neck oncology, which started in medical school and carried on through residency, stemmed from the complex nature of the disease, interpersonal relationships needed to navigate the disease process, and incredible range of surgical and procedural skills needed to be a Head and Neck oncologist. He is very excited to have matched here at the University of Pittsburgh for Head and Neck oncology and microvascular reconstruction fellowship.
