General Otolaryngology


General Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery encompasses the broad range of disorders of the ears, nose, sinuses, mouth, throat, face, and neck in adult patients. Because these areas of the head and neck are interconnected, presenting symptoms in one region can potentially be the cause of issues in a related region. An initial assessment of the head and neck is often the best place to start when determining the best possible treatment pathways.

Treatment options provided by our specialists

Treatments include a full range of medical and surgical therapies for a wide variety of otolaryngologic conditions. On occasion, some disorders may involve collaboration with subspecialists within the UW Medicine network for more complex diagnostic and therapeutic options.
