Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Center at UWMC

Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Center at UWMC 1959 NE Pacific St., 3rd Floor, NE 300, Seattle, WA 98195 206.598.4022     

​​​​​​​​Otolaryngology encompasses diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck. Our highly trained surgeons, providers, nurses and support staff treat patients with disorders such as chronic sinusitis, dizziness, cancer and the loss of ability to hear, speak and/or swallow. Often the causes of such disorders are not immediately evident so the team’s clinical experience with diagnostic tools are vital to setting out a treatment plan that has the best likelihood to succeed.
