Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery

​​​​​​​​​The UW Medicine Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery team specializes in treating diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck.

If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, dizziness, reduced or loss of ability to hear, speak and/or swallow, head and neck cancer, thyroid or parathyroid disorders, we can help. Additionally, we offer facial reconstructive and cosmetic services for our patients.

UW Medicine’s team of surgeons, providers, nurses and support staff—all caring, highly-trained specialists—are focused on helping you get well again. You will be cared for and treated by an experienced medical team committed to helping you achieve the healthiest possible outcome.

What causes these disorders is not always clear, and that‘s why our clinical experience and diagnostic skills are invaluable to your prospects for good health. Both are crucial to creating the customized, evidence-based treatment plan that has the best chance of helping you regain your health.

As a patient in Oto-HNS, you might also be seen by audiologists, speech and language pathologists, social workers, or nutritionists who help form the comprehensive care team. In concert with the UW School of Medicine, the Oto-HNS staff forges scientific advances and pursues new standards of care.
