BILLER--Hugh F., MD.

We, at the Mount Sinai Health System, are very saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague, Hugh F. Biller, MD, former Professor and Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. An internationally recognized educator and head and neck surgeon, Dr. Biller was a pioneer in conservative laryngeal surgical procedures. When he was named Chair in 1972, at age 37, he became Mount Sinai's youngest Chair appointee. Under his stewardship, the Department expanded rounds to include a number of key staff from different specialties, providing an early model of truly comprehensive care. Dr. Biller authored more than 350 scientific articles and co-authored the book "Surgery of the Larynx" with Byron Bailey. He won numerous awards, served as President of Mount Sinai's Medical Board, and was a frequent and popular lecturer. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, colleagues, and friends. He was a devoted physician and educator, and it is with gratitude that we remember his many years of service to Mount Sinai and his patients. Peter W.
