Two things have really made me feel privileged to work here at Seattle Children's Hospital. The first has been the confidence that comes from being surrounded by true world experts in every niche in medicine. The second has been the Hospital's commitment to caring for all children, regardless of ability to pay, social situation, or native language. Financial, social, or linguistic factors have never limited my ability to see the child and do what I thought was best.


Andrew F. Inglis, Jr, MD has been on faculty at the University of Washington since he completed his residency and fellowship here in 1987.  His subspecialty in pediatric otolaryngology has been the management of children with complex airway problems, particularly the endoscopic management of laryngeal stenosis.  He is known internationally for developing a less invasive method of expanding the laryngeal airway: the endoscopic posterior cricoid split and rib cartilage graft.  He received the Gabriel Tucker in 2013 in recognition for this and other contributions to the field. 

Interests outside of medicine include travel, hiking, trying to get his wife or children to go sailing with him, and --forgive him, he grew up in New Jersey-- listening to The Boss.
