Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery

The Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) provides expert, individualized care for a range of conditions and diseases affecting the ear, nose and throat (ENT) from the common to complex — including the best in cancer care through our collaboration with Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center.

Our otolaryngology specialists have made significant contributions to the field of otolaryngology, including developing the clinical criteria standards for diagnosing and treating chronic sinusitis, providing widely acclaimed vocal services for performers, and operating as part of the multidisciplinary surgical team who performed the first full face transplant in the United States. These advances improve the lives of patients throughout Boston and beyond.

As leaders in otolaryngology medicine, we train the next generation of surgeons through the Harvard Otolaryngology Residency Program and are engaged in ongoing scientific research — pioneering breakthroughs in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of otolaryngology diseases and conditions.

Our multidisciplinary approach integrates the expertise of our team of otolaryngologists with care provided by multiple other BWH specialists and support services. This creates a patient-centered environment that ensures optimal care.

Melding patient convenience with the best in otolaryngology care, we offer services for patients who require the full spectrum of a tertiary level hospital at BWH’s main campus in Boston. We also offer services in community-based locations for easy access and patient convenience in Foxboro at the Brigham Health and Brigham and Women’s/Mass General Health Care Centers and in Jamaica Plain at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
