Andrew F. Inglis, Jr., M.D., was on faculty at the University of Washington from the time he completed his residency and fellowship here in 1987 until 2018. His subspecialty in pediatric otolaryngology was 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 award 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.
