About me

Peter T. Dziegielewski “Dz,” MD, FRCSC, FACS is board-certified in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Originally from Canada, Dr. Dz received his medical degree and residency training in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. He then completed a fellowship in advanced head and neck oncologic surgery, certified by the American Head and Neck Society, at The Ohio State University in Columbus.

Dr. Dz specializes in the surgical removal of head and neck masses, tumors and cancers. This includes the mouth, tongue, jaws, throat, voice box, face, skin, thyroid, parathyroid, salivary glands, and other sites of the head and neck. He uses open techniques as well as minimally invasive approaches, including robotic surgery, or TORS. He also specializes in head and neck reconstruction using microvascular surgery (free flaps) and other flaps/grafts. He has a clinical interest in using virtual surgery and 3D modeling to perform complex jaw and midface reconstruction. His focus is on rebuilding defects to maximize post-operative swallowing, speech, cosmesis and quality of life.

At University of Florida Health, Dr. Dz serves as the director of the Division of Head and Neck Surgical Oncology and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery. He is also the Fellowship Director for Advanced Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery at UF Health (AHNS Accredited).
