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.

Otolaryngology News

Join us in congratulating Dr. Myriam Loyo-Li and Dr. Ryan Li on their promotions to Associate Professor! This is an amazing achievement and we wish them both continued success and growth in their fields and department!

Dr. Loyo is also the recipient of the AAO-HNST Bobby Alford Endowed Research Award for 2021. The Bobby Alford Endowed Research Award is given by the the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF). She received this award for her project titled "Unilateral Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow in Nasal Obstruction". The goal of the project is to study how patients symptoms of nasal obstruction compare to nasal incentive spirometer, which is a non-invasive test to measure breathing. By measuring nasal flow, we can better understand how to help patients breath better.

Hatfield Research Center

Oregon Hearing Research Center, a part of OHSU's Department of Otolaryngology, was recently featured in the Oregon Business Journal. The Center is the second-largest hearing research institute in the United States and focuses on the mechanisms and treatments for hearing loss involving the inner ear.
The Center's path-breaking work helps our clinicians to stay at the absolute forefront of our field, and the challenges faced by our patients motivates the Center's scientists to identify and solve the most critical problems facing people with hearing loss.
