The Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose, and Throat) at OHSU is committed to deliver the best possible care to all of our patients, and to expand our knowledge through research and education. As a service to our patients, we offer a full range of medical care options, state-of-the-art technologies and expert doctors and staff.  As part of our commitment to the best care possible, we provide education to medical students, residents and fellows (doctors in training), and practicing physicians, and offer educational information and seminars to our patients as well.

Our specialists and physicians treat a wide variety of ear, nose, and throat-related disorders, such as hoarseness, hearing loss, sore throats, snoring and sinus problems, and cancer of the head and neck region. 

By combining compassionate care with specialized treatment options and the most current education and technology, we create a caring and healing environment for both children and adults.
