The Division of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery provides comprehensive service for adults and children with common and complex diseases of the ear, nose, and throat. Our care extends to the full range of hearing, balance, reconstructive, skull-based, sinus, head and neck tumor, airway, speech, voice, and swallowing disorders. Our care is frequently provided with multidisciplinary teams of specialists including but not limited to otolaryngologists, surgeons from other specialties, oncologists, speech pathologists, dentists, radiologists, audiologists, nutritionists, and nursing. The highly skilled surgeons in our divisions have completed rigorous training and specialty fellowships, and many are renowned across the country or around the world as leaders in their respective disciplines. In 2009, US News and World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” issue ranked our division in the top three percent of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery programs in the United States.
Our division is composed of physicians who are faculty at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. In addition, the division has six full-time faculty who are world class, federally funded researchers. Interactions between our diverse faculty provide the platform for bidirectional exchange of ideas and stimulate new avenues for clinical care and research. Our multidisciplinary efforts maximize our translational, comprehensive understanding, and treatment of diseases of the ear, nose, and throat.
