Biography

Dr. Henry Milczuk is a doctor at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital (DCH). He cares for children with problems of the head and neck (Pediatric Otolaryngology). He sees children with any type of problem involving the ears and hearing, nose, throat, face, neck, and airway. He is especially interested in helping children born with anomalies like cleft lip and palate. Dr. Milczuk focuses on treatments that will restore normal hearing and speech, as well as the child’s appearance. He partners with other providers in the Craniofacial Disorders Clinic (CFD) to optimize results for these children.

 

Dr. Milczuk strongly believes in collaborative care amongst the numerous providers at DCH. In addition to the CFD, other multidisciplinary clinics he participates in include the Velopharyngeal Insufficiency (VPI) Clinic and Pediatric Voice Disorders Clinic. Combining the evaluation with a pediatric speech pathology partner we can offer treatment plans in one clinic visit. He also joins Dr. Lissa Baird, a Pediatric Neurosurgeon, to remove tumors from the brain through the nose. This joint surgical approach, anterior skull base surgery, allows us to treat children with these tumors without making any incisions on the skin.

 

Dr. Milczuk is also an Associate Professor in Otolaryngology and Pediatrics at OHSU’s School of Medicine. He has taught and mentored numerous residents, in both departments, during his 23 years at OHSU. Currently he is a member of the Credentials Committee and Pediatric Specialties Clinic Operations Committee at OHSU. Dr. Milczuk formerly served as Surgeon-in-Chief at DCH.

 

Dr Milczuk is active nationally and internationally. He is active with the International Working Group in Endoscopic Ear Surgery and recently presented his work in Bologna, Italy. For the past 10 years Dr. Milczuk teaches pediatric facial plastic surgery to Vietnamese surgeons at the National ENT Hospital in Hanoi. He is a co-investigator, with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Eastern Virginia Medical Center, helping to create a National Registry for patients with Juvenile Onset Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (JORRP). He is a member of an Epic Steering Committee working with others nationally to improve electronic medical record use for providers in Pediatric Otolaryngology. He trained at the University of Washington and met his wife in Seattle.

Patient Comments

    The provider has been great. When I was called for check in information we were told we are staying overnight at the hospital after our child's surgery. We were then told by the surgeon we do not need to stay overnight at the time of the surgery. He then said I'm sorry but whoever told you that was wrong. So we were expecting to stay overnight.

  • Dec 15, 2019

    He was very thorough and and did an excellent job of communicating to us exactly what was going to happen. He was very quick with the procedure and awesome with our child!

  • Dec 15, 2019

    Dr. Milczuk and the staff at OHSU Doernbecher were professional, attentive and made sure that my husband and I, as well as most importantly our son, was well taken care of. We had a great experience and are very happy with the care our son received.

  • Dec 14, 2019

    Great experience as always... we have been here many times and have always had a great experience!

    Very good experience. We received great care from all the staff at the hospital. Thank you.

  • Dec 05, 2019

    Henry Milczuk is a very knowledgeable and skilled surgeon who has done great work on our son 3 times now and it's kept track of him over the course of 2 years. He is always willing to answer every question we have and just gets us in and out of every office in surgery just as fast as possible as he can without making without the ignoring our questions. So we really appreciate that what he takes time to do that.

  • Dec 02, 2019

    Very friendly and took the time to make sure we understood everything while we were there.

  • Nov 24, 2019

    The ENT surgeon was amazing! Staff was the kindest staff we have ever encountered for our son. We have seen many providers and surgeons since 2012 and this staff made us feel like we are important and not just another source of income. The audiologist at Dornbeckers was the best experience for our son. They giggled and choked around and she made our son lively. We will only take our son to OHSU for his treatments!

  • Nov 23, 2019

    He was thorough and professional.

  • Nov 07, 2019

    The medical team we had were amazing,kind, friendly, went above and beyond to make our sons stay comfortable & helped ease his anxiety with the child therapist & so many incredibly caring staff before his surgery. The surgeon and entire staff were absolutely incredible. We are forever grateful for the amazing care our son & our family received. Thankyou so much.

  • Nov 07, 2019

    He was kind to our son, answered all of our questions, and provided us a follow up right after our son's procedure.

  • Nov 06, 2019

    Friendly and conversational with my 3 year old, knowledgeable, took time to explain things, answer questions, and let us know how to best get a hold of him in future.

  • Nov 06, 2019

    He had no time to listen when I spoke. (INAUDIBLE) And I wanted him to listen to but he just ignore then walked out think you should have given us some time to explain or just be more interested in the patient not just come in for 30 seconds and walk out.

  • Nov 03, 2019

    Dr Milczuk was so amazing, this provider really cares. He spent extra care and time to make sure my son's ear surgery was better for healing purposes, and for the long run. This provider explained to me what to expect best and worst case scenarios. All staff made our family feel very comfotable. We were fortunate enough to stay at the rood family pavillion/ Ronald McDonald house and it was also amazing, our family is very blessed to have been able to be in such a supportive and helpful community-based hospital environment.

    Dr. Milczuk was able to get us in quickly with time constraints after an emergency. During the... before and during and after the procedure he was very... he seemed like he was very well, knew what was going to happen. We had no surprises. We were very pleased with... with everything how it turned out, just everything in the process.

  • Jul 24, 2019

    Direct, professional, and made the process easy.

  • Jul 23, 2019

    My daughter's had this provider since the age of 2. We had a partial cleft palate repair. We don't live in the area. So come from out of the area this particular surgical procedure. We had a little bit additional time to see his demeanor and bed side manner, which we'd likeed all long. But this just really hit home. There was some delays and you just had a great bed side manner was very informative. Very helpful. Very caring. My daughter's now 12 years old and she just had her ears done and I can't say enough good things about this provider. I wished you lived in my local area or that I had to access to him throughout the process of her growing the needs of her tubes, but I'm just glad that we continue to do a follow up in care under him and I'm just very thankful. And I hope that the procedure that he just did *

  • Jul 08, 2019

  • Jun 27, 2019

    They really took the time to make my child comfortable, and to include him in decision making. They even let him pick a stuffed animal to make him more comfortable. Jess with the patient care team was amazing as were our nurses doctors and residents! I have nothing but positive things to say about our entire experience and care team!!

  • Jun 08, 2019

  • May 24, 2019

    The staff is friendly and efficient.

  • May 23, 2019

    We did not expect to see Dr. Milczuk on this day, but he worked my son into his schedule, and addressed the concerns I had about a nasal growth. I appreciated it so much.

  • May 18, 2019

    My only suggestion for improvement is that questions prior to procedures needed are not fully answered via email. Dr. Milczuk can be very brief and not answer all the questions that I have asked in the email regarding procedures or recommendations that are needed. That is my only suggestion. More detail than actual answers to the questions and not just saying what is needed.

  • May 17, 2019

    Amazing! The intuition of the doctor and the entire care was a really positive experience, which is rare for my daughter.

  • May 16, 2019

    We love Dr. Milczuk. He is a great doctor who explains things easily and is just an awesome doctor, especially with little children.

  • May 15, 2019

    I always appreciate the staff at Doernbecher's. They did a great job of trying to squeeze our spaced put appt.s together. It's difficult for us to stay a full day as we live 5 hours away.

  • May 15, 2019

    The hearing technician was really great with my 4 year old, he is still talking about the game they played.
