With more than 155 peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Randolph has focused the bulk of his research on recurrent laryngeal nerve anatomy, preservation, and monitoring during thyroid cancer surgery, with a concentration on the importance of laryngeal exams, the recognition of lymph node metastasis, and revision cancer surgery.
He has led thyroid surgical missions to St. Petersburg, Russia; Guangzhou, China; Kenya; rural India; and the Chernobyl region of the Ukraine. He founded and directs the Harvard Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery Course for surgeons and has directed international surgical courses in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Russia.
