About

Professor McGurk is a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial and Head and Neck Surgeon, part of the North London Head and Neck Cancer Group and provides a specialist service in oral and head and neck cancer, reconstruction and salivary gland disease. He is past president of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and past editor of the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

He studied at Sheffield University before undertaking junior posts in oral and maxillofacial surgery and a six month period visiting maxillofacial units in the United States. Professor McGurk later returned to Sheffield to complete his medical degree.

Professor McGurk has completed significant research in his field and focused on the early diagnosis of head and neck cancer, complications of surgery, and the use of minimally invasive surgery for head and neck cancer. He has written two books on salivary disease and influenced the practice of salivary gland surgery to move from excision to gland preservation. He also led a European trial on sentinel node biopsy which led to a 75% reduction in neck dissection for early mouth cancers. In addition, he developed a new way to treat odontogenic tumours (ameloblastoma) which preserves the mandible and normal facial appearance.

Professor McGurk lectures at national and international conferences and runs classes on salivary gland surgery in London, Paris and Erlangen for Maxillofacial and ENT Consultants.

Very clear explanations of the procedure beforehand: I was confident I knew what to expect. Afterwards told me how it went in an unusual level of detail, which I appreciated. And the result was great.

Travelled from York seeking Professor McGurk's expertise and he did an excellent job at diagnosing, explaining and performing operation, putting me at ease at a stressful time and enabling me to make a speedy recovery. I highly recommend Professor McGurk - brilliant patient care from start to finish.

Prof Mark McGurk is an outstanding and unique medical professional. Not only is he technically superb (I can eat, speak and drink almost normally after the removal of half my tongue along-with the tumour that necessitated the operation and have virtually no visible external scars) but his dedication to and care for his patients is outstanding. I am very lucky to have had him as the surgeon for my operation and then consultant for the subsequent monitoring and remission period of five years to "cure". Indeed, he is still in touch with and providing support to me if I have any concerns or challenges some six and a half years after the operation.
