The Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery is excited to welcome Jumin Sunde, M.D., to our Head and Neck Surgery Team.

Moreno, M.D.; Emre Vural, M.D.; Ozlem Tulunay Ugur, M.D.; and James Y. Suen, M.D., who are leaders in central Arkansas and contribute to research and surgical innovation on an international scale. Specifically, Sunde will complement the team’s work in advanced tumor removal by using newer techniques like robotics and microvascular reconstruction of complex head and neck issues in addition to traditional “open” surgery approaches.
