What we do

We treat a range of disorders of the ears, nose, face, sinuses, mouth, throat, larynx and neck in both adults and children. In addition to standard ENT procedures, from ear tubes to tonsils, we also offer a number of highly specialized services, including:

  • Head and neck cancer surgery
  • Plastic surgery, including nose jobs and facelifts, office botox injections and other cosmetic procedures. Special attention is placed on function, not just form, from opening up airways to ensuring the mouth and the ability to speak clearly are not negatively impacted.
  • Advanced ear surgery
  • Skull base surgery
  • Cochlear implantation
  • In-office laryngeal procedures for voice restoration
  • Complex facial reconstructive operations, including cleft lip and cleft palate surgery.
