Otorhinolaryngologists at NewYork-Presbyterian specialize in disorders of the head and neck, especially those related to the ear, nose, and throat (hence the common abbreviation "ENT"). Our physicians subspecialize in more than a dozen areas including otology, neurotology (the study of the nerves within the ear), surgery of the head and neck, nasal and sinus disorders, voice and swallowing problems, audiology, and upper airway obstruction.

Virtually all otorhinolaryngologists routinely handle cases such as adenoidectomies, tonsillectomies, nose bleeds, infected mastoids, sinus disease, snoring and sleep disorders, and breathing problems. Both NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center have several specialized Divisions within their Departments of Otorhinolaryngology.

The Otology and Neurotology Divisions, for example, include teams of specialists who treat diseases of the ear and skull base. Surgeons in these Divisions perform a variety of otologic and neurotologic procedures, such as surgery for diseases of the ear, surgery for skull base tumors, hearing restoration surgery, and procedures for facial nerve disorders. In particular, the Otology and Neurotology Division at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia has earned a national reputation as a premier center for the surgical restoration of hearing, and has extensive experience with vestibular disorders, such as vertigo, Meniere's disease, and rare balance and gait disorders.

The Divisions of Head and Neck Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital also provide expert clinical care in treating a wide variety of benign and malignant tumors of the head and neck, including those that affect the salivary glands, thyroid, tongue, lips, throat, and skin. Surgeons also conduct arthroscopic examination of the nasal passages and throat.
