- Dr. Curry specializes in the care of patients with disorders of the head and neck. This includes patients with cancers of tha larynx (voice box), oral cavity, nasal cavity and sinuses, and pharynx (throat: tonsils and base of tongue). In addition, we treat diseases of the salivary glands and surgical disorders of the thyroid.
Dr. Curry completed his medical school training at Georgetown University and his residency at Thomas Jefferson University. He completed a fellowship in advanced head and neck surgical oncology and microvascular reconstruction at the University of Miami.
The management of head and neck cancers often requires a multidisciplinary approach involving cancer and reconstructive surgeons and medical and radiation oncologists. We coordinate this care with our speech and swallowing specialists, nutritionists, cancer care coordinator and specialized nursing staff to optimize the care of our patients. As a team we strive to deliver effective, rapid, and coordinated care to our patients as they deal with the complex issues surrounding their health.

Localized oropharyngeal amyloidosisEar, Nose and Throat Journal | May 2011;90(5)
Authors: Grindle CR, Curry JM, Cantor JP, Malloy KM, Pribitkin EA, Keane WM.
An otherwise healthy 29-year-old woman presented with a complaint of odynophagia of several months' duration.
Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging protocol for endoscopic cranial base image-guided surgeryAmerican Journal of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Medicine and Surgery
Authors: Grindle CR, Curry JM, Kang MD, Evans JJ, Rosen MR.
Objective: Despite the increasing utilization of image-guided surgery, no radiology protocols for obtaining magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of adequate quality are available in the current literature. At our institution, more than 300 endonasal cranial base procedures including pituitary, extended pituitary, and other anterior skullbase procedures have been performed in the past 3 years. To facilitate and optimize preoperative evaluation and assessment, there was a need to develop a magnetic resonance protocol.
Epileptic laryngospasm presenting as a primary sleep disturbanceArchives of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery | Oct 2010;136(10):1025-1027
Authors: Murray RC, Powell D, Curry JM, Sperling MR, Evans JJ, Spiegel JR.
Ophthalmologic disorders in children with syndromic and nonsyndromic hearing lossArchives of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery | Mar 2010;136(3):277-280
Authors: Johnston DR, Curry JM, Newborough B, Morlet T, Bartoshesky L, Lehman S, Ennis S, O'Reilly RC.
Objective: To determine the rate of ophthalmologic anomalies among patients with syndromic and nonsyndromic, congenital sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) to assess the need for comprehensive ophthalmologic evaluation in these children.
Thyroid lymphosonography: A novel method for evaluating lymphatic drainageAnnals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology | Sep 2009;118(9):645-650
Authors: Curry JM, Ezzat WH, Merton DA, Goldberg BB, Cognetti DM, Rosen D, Pribitkin EA.
Objectives: We evaluated lymphosonography, or contrast-enhanced, ultrasonography (US)-guided sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection, as a technique for demonstrating the lymphatic drainage of the thyroid gland.
Meta-analysis of surgical techniques for preventing parotidectomy sequelaeArchives of Facial Plastic Surgery | Sep 2009;11(5):327-331
Authors: Curry JM, King N, Reiter D, Fisher K, Heffelfinger RN, Pribitkin EA.
Objective: To conduct a meta-analysis of the literature on surgical methods for the prevention of Frey syndrome and concave facial deformity after parotidectomy.
Inflammatory pseudotumor of the inner ear: Are computed tomography changes pathognomonic?Laryngoscope | Jun 2009;120(6):1252-1255
Authors: Curry JM, King N, O'Reilly RC, Corao D.
This case study presents a report of inflammatory pseudotumor of the inner ear in a child, discusses radiographic findings and clinical management, and reviews the current literature on this rare disease.
Multimodality education for airway endoscopy skill evelopmentAnnals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology | Feb 2009;118(2):81-86
Authors: Deutsch ES, Christenson T, Curry J, Hossain J, Zur K, Jacobs I.
Objectives: Airway endoscopy is a difficult skill to master. A unique practicum was designed to help otolaryngology residents develop endoscopy skills. The learning modalities included lectures, an animal laboratory, high-fidelity manikins, virtual bronchoscopy simulation, and standardized patients. This study compares the relative subjective value of these learning modalities for skill development and realism.
Unusual fibrosclerotic lesion of the laryngotracheal complex presenting as subglottic stenosisAnnals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology | Jan 2009;118(1):27-29
Authors: Johnston DR, Curry JM, Rubin R, Rosen MR.
We present a case report that describes the pathology, presentation, and management complexities of an unusual, destructive fibrosclerotic lesion of the laryngotracheal complex.

Authors: Curry JM, Grindle CR, Merton DA, Goldberg BB, Rosen D, Pribitkin EA.
Objective: To test the feasibility of a novel contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) technique, or lymphosonography, for sentinel node biopsy (SNB) of the supraglottis in a porcine model.
Superficial musculoaponeurotic system elevation and fat graft reconstruction after superficial parotidectomyLaryngoscope | Feb 2008;118(2):210-215
Authors: Curry JM, Fisher KW, Heffelfinger RN, Rosen MR, Keane WM, Pribitkin EA.
