Dr. Davies is an otolaryngologist – head & neck surgeon whose thyroid related research is aimed at defining and documenting the problem of rising thyroid cancer incidence and developing management approaches to the problem in ways that are safe and effective. To that end, she has used SEER data extensively and is working with the National Cancer Institute on projects to bring personalized prognostic estimates to patients newly diagnosed with cancer. She has also used her expertise in mixed methods approaches to obtain information from patients about their experience of thyroid cancer overdiagnosis. Clinically, Dr. Davies cares for patients with both head and neck and thyroid cancer as well as general otolaryngology problems.
