Meet Dr. Stadler
Dr. Michael E. Stadler is a Board Certified Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgeon and has specialized fellowship training in Head and Neck Oncologic and Reconstructive Surgery. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Dr. Stadler specializes in both open and minimally-invasive approaches to benign and malignant head and neck neoplasms. His fellowship training focused heavily on transoral laser microsurgical (TLM) techniques, as well as transoral robotic-assisted surgery (TORS) for the minimal-invasive surgical resection of upper aerodigestive tract tumors. Dr. Stadler is also trained in head and neck reconstruction, including free tissue transfer (“free flap”) techniques.
Dr. Stadler is a Wisconsin native and spent eight years at the University of Wisconsin where he earned is BS and MD degrees. He was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. He completed his five-year Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of North Carolina before going on to complete a Transoral Laser Microsurgery/Microvascular Head and Neck Reconstruction/Head and Neck Oncology Fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.
Dr. Stadler has particular clinical interest and training in minimally-invasive and transoral approaches to head and neck tumors, robotic and laser surgery, microvascular head and neck reconstruction, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, salivary gland surgery, endoscopic skull base surgery, office-based ultrasound procedures, and sialendoscopy. His research interests currently focus on HPV-related head and neck cancer, minimizing treatment-related morbidity in head and neck cancer patients, minimally-invasive approaches to head and neck cancers, and the use of quality metrics in head and neck cancer care.
