• Dr. Jeyarajan joins our faculty from Melbourne, Australia. His background is diverse with fellowship and subspecialty training in several key areas including head and neck oncology (UAB), skull base surgery (London, UK) and airway reconstruction (London, UK). We were fortunate to recruit Dr. Jeyarajan back to UAB as a surgical hospitalist. He will take the lead for difficult airway patients and will be positioned to provide care for patients requiring urgent transfer to UAB, in-house consults and additional head and neck and skull base cases. He has hit the ground running and we believe our referring community will notice a difference in ease of access for complex patients requiring care at UAB.
