Professional Statement

Dr. Golden is a board-certified and fellowship-trained Head and Neck Surgeon. He practices the full spectrum of Head and Neck Oncology, including Endocrine Surgery, Microvascular Reconstruction, and Robotic Surgery among others. After serving on active duty in the United States Army, he joined the Swedish Head and Neck Surgery practice in 2017. Dr. Golden focuses on treating the patient, not the disease. This means listening to the patient's concerns, discussing diagnoses and treatment options in understandable terms, and making decisions with the patient, not for the patient. Dr. Golden is dedicated to offering state-of-the-art, cutting edge cancer care. In his free time, Dr. Golden enjoys running, surfing, hiking, and cooking.
