Dr. Yesensky's research interests include:
1. Cutaneous malignancies, specifically cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. I am working to establish a clinical trial evaluating role sentinel lymph node biopsy in moderate to high risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in conjunction with Dr. Ally-Khan Somani. This will lead to further collaborative studies investigating and identifying better treatment regimens. In collaboration with the Department of Dermatology, we will be establishing an institutional database of cutaneous malignancies. 2. Cancer Cachexia. We have already started work on evaluating cachexia in head and neck cancer patients. We are currently working specifically on tumor burden and degree of cachexia as well as evaluating outcomes in free flap patients with cachexia.
