Ear, Nose And Throat Surgery

Ear, nose and throat surgery is a unique specialty where a broad range of diseases will be encountered in patients of all ages: from a baby with a threatened airway, to an elderly man with extensive throat cancer. The skills needed to treat our patients are also diverse, ranging from microsurgery used in cochlear implantation procedures to major surgery of the head and neck for cancer treatment.

Adults and children alike receive comprehensive care for diseases affecting their ear, nose, throat and neck. Care is coordinated between physicians and audiologists, balance therapists, and speech and swallow therapists. Our providers excel in minimally invasive surgical techniques such as balloon sinuplasty, endoscopic skull base tumor removal and endoscopic laser microsurgery for cancer.  

Head and Neck Cancer care is coordinated with multidisciplinary tumor boards attended by surgical oncologist, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, speech and swallow therapists, and cancer care nurse navigator.
