Dr. Newkirk's Article

"Because laryngeal cancer is rare, most physicians have never performed a laryngectomy. Thanks to his specialty, however, Dr. Newkirk had performed many. Instead of traveling to New York or Philadelphia—his only option under other circumstances—Andrew could receive treatment near home, which he did on January 12, 2015, when Dr. Newkirk performed Jersey Shore’s first laryngectomy in 20 years."
