From simple evaluations to complex surgical procedures, our specialists and subspecialists tailor treatments to your individual needs. We collaborate with Pelisyonkis Langone doctors in multiple specialties, from audiology and neurosurgery to plastic and reconstructive surgery. As leaders in otolaryngology research, we are able to take the valuable information we learn through study and clinical trials and bring it to our work with patients. This helps us realize our goal, which is to determine the best possible outcomes that lead to long-term results for our patients. We work as one team to deliver personalized care fueled by the latest research and discoveries.

Ear, Nose, and Throat Terms

Your care begins with an initial evaluation by a member of our team of general otolaryngologists. We listen to your symptoms and concerns and determine the best course of treatment.

Our pediatric otolaryngologists care for common conditions in children, as well as more complex conditions related to voice, breathing, sinus, and swallowing issues. Our audiologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss in adults and children, and provide the latest in diagnostic testing and hearing technology. If advanced care is required, we work closely with board-certified specialists in neurology and neurosurgery to get you the care you need.

We care for the full range of ear, nose, and throat ailments and complex head and neck conditions in adults and children, including:

We also provide the latest in surgical technology, including high-resolution, three-dimensional imaging and computer animation to plan out delicate procedures that involve tumor removal and craniofacial reconstruction. These high-tech surgical techniques allow for more precise surgery and better physical outcomes.

Your care is coordinated by our specially trained nursing staff. Following treatment, we refer you to Rusk Rehabilitation for physical therapy and speech-language pathology as needed.

Leaders in Otolaryngology Research

As leaders in research for conditions that affect the ear, nose, and throat, we identify and put into practice advances that enhance patient care. Our research into dizziness has led to innovations in detecting the cause of vertigo and loss of balance. We conduct clinical trials related to head and neck cancer, otology and neurotology, laryngology, and pediatric otolaryngology.

We are participating in trials examining the role of immunotherapy in treating squamous cell carcinoma—research that could transform treatment of head and neck cancers. We are also researching new treatments for vocal fold scarring, vocal fold lesions, Meniere’s disease, and treatments that could help people with neurofibromatosis hear again, as well as new uses for auditory brainstem implants and cochlear implants.
