Otolaryngology (Ears, Nose and Throat)

Otolarngology, Department of Surgery

Otolaryngology provides medical and surgical care to patients with ear, nose and throat disorders. We also provide comprehensive treatment services to patients with cancers of the head and neck.

Our surgeons work in partnership with doctors from many disciplines to deliver our patients a higher level of care.

Welcome to the Section of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Danbury Hospital. Our ENT (ears, nose, and throat) doctors are dedicated to providing our patients the highest quality of medical and surgical care within the context of a compassionate and supportive environment.

Otolaryngologists treat a large spectrum of diseases spanning a wide range of age groups. I am personally very proud to be associated with each member of this team and I believe that we have established interdisciplinary protocols and relationships that have significantly improved the quality of care that our patients receive.

We are especially aware of the unique needs of our pediatric patients. Therefore, we maintain a close relationship with both the Department of Pediatrics and when surgery is necessary, the Department of Anesthesiology.

All of the members of the section have embraced state-of-the-art technology when evaluating, diagnosing and treating ENT problems. Our surgeons commonly perform minimally invasive surgical techniques, the use of image guidance with computer assistance and the use of endoscopes.

In conjunction with Endocrinology and Metabolism, the Section of Otolaryngology has instituted a progressive standardized protocol for the evaluation and treatment of thyroid nodules and hyperparathyroidism.

Finally, in order to better serve our head and neck oncology patients, we are proud to be the only group outside of Manhattan to have been invited to associate with Continuum Health Care, a conglomeration of institutions in New York City that evaluates and makes recommendations for the treatment of head and neck tumors.

Please take the time to explore our website in order to learn more about our board- certified otolaryngologists and the services that they provide. Thank you for your trust.
