Biography

About Jamie Ku, MD

Jamie A. Ku, MD, is a board-certified Otolaryngology-Head and Neck surgeon in the Cleveland Clinic's Head and Neck Institute and a Staff Member in both the Section of Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology and the Section of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Her clinical expertise is in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant head and neck tumors and complex reconstruction of the head and neck. She cares for patients with benign head and neck tumors, cancer of the mouth, tongue, throat, voice box, face, and scalp, and disorders involving the salivary, thyroid, and parathyroid glands. Dr. Ku is skilled in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as transoral robotic surgery and transoral laser microsurgery. She also specializes in complex reconstructive surgery, including microvascular free flaps, to restore form and function after cancer treatment.

Dr. Ku collaborates with the multidisciplinary team of specialists to deliver highest-quality care that is comprehensive and individualized. She also leads the patient-centered outcomes research program in the section of Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology, focusing on the areas of functional outcomes and quality of life outcomes of the head and neck patients. Dr. Ku has published a number of journal articles on topics ranging from head and neck tumor biology to minimally-invasive methods of detecting the human papilloma virus (HPV) in head and neck cancer patients. She has also authored numerous book chapters and serves as ad-hoc reviewer for multiple journals in the field of otolaryngology and oncology, including Head & Neck, Oral Oncology, and Scientific Reports.

After completing her undergraduate degree at Duke University, Dr. Ku earned her medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2010, where she completed a one-year research fellowship in Head and Neck Tumor Molecular Signaling. She completed her post-graduate surgical training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University in 2015. She then pursued a two-year dual fellowship in advanced Head and Neck Surgical Oncology and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and is certified by the American Head and Neck Society and Advanced Training Council. 

Dr. Ku is a member of several professional medical organizations, including the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the American Head & Neck Society.

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 9/7/2017, Dr. Ku has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.
