Henry Milczuk, MD - Pediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat

He graduated from the University of Michigan and received his MD degree from the University of California, Davis. He completed his training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Washington.

Dr. Milczuk now provides the option of Endoscopic Ear Surgery for his patients. Endoscopic ear surgery minimizes the number and size of incisions made around the ear. The endoscope offers advantages over traditional techniques for seeing problems in the ear. If there are problems with the hearing bones (ossicles), or an artificial hearing bone is needed to improve hearing, the endoscopes are excellent at seeing the fine details.

This idea recognizes the importance of the family in the well-being and care of a child.
