The department of Otolaryngology would like to welcome our new facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Natalie Krane, M.D. 

Dr. Natalie Krane is originally from Michigan and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Behavioral Neuroscience with honors at Lehigh University, where she also played Division I soccer. She worked in the biotechnology field for Genentech and for Shire Pharmaceuticals prior to graduating from medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine. She completed her residency in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at Oregon Health & Science University and fellowship training in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at University of Kansas Medical Center.

Her clinical practice is focused on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck, including facial reconstruction following skin cancer resection (melanoma, Mohs), functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty, scar revision, skin lesion removal, facial rejuvenation (face/neck lift, browlift, eye lift), otoplasty (repair of prominent ears, ear lobe repair), and hair restoration surgery (hair transplant). 

Dr. Krane’s goal is to take a holistic approach to patient care by optimizing health and wellness to improve postoperative outcomes and patient satisfaction. She has authored many peer-reviewed publications and regularly presents her research at the leading academic meetings.

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.
