Advanced Diagnosis & Treatment Options
As an academic medical center, we have a broad range of specialized expertise and advanced technology to offer you all of the latest diagnostic and treatment options. We offer highly specialized cochlear implants to restore hearing. Our surgeons regularly perform laser surgeries for treating Zenker's diverticulum, a condition of the esophagus that causes swallowing difficulties.
Very few surgeons are proficient in the use of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for treating head and neck cancer, and our specialists routinely use this procedure whenever possible to treat head and neck cancers, often allowing people to avoid laryngectomy other more invasive procedures.
Our physicians are the only ones in the area — and one of only two physician groups in the state — to offer in-office KTP laser treatment for vocal problems.
