Welcome to Penn State Hershey Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Penn State Hershey Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose and Throat) leads in the diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant diseases of the head and neck region. Advanced care is delivered by our team of five board-certified Otolaryngologists, with the support of specialized services provided by our audiologists, speech pathologist, and experienced physician assistant. A diverse collection of head and neck disease processes are treated by our staff on an outpatient and inpatient basis. Our surgical specialists have particular interest in treating congenital and acquired pediatric illnesses, upper aerodigestive tract cancer, hearing and balance disorders, maxillofacial trauma, cosmetic and reconstructive facial problems, speech and voice disorders, sinus disease, and surgical endocrine (thyroid and parathyroid) disorders.
The goals of our Division are closely allied with those of Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center: provide World Class care to our patients, educate residents and medical students in the diagnosis and treatments of otolaryngologic diseases, and advance the science of medicine through research.
We also provide full speech therapy and audiology services (hearing and balance tests, hearing aid dispensing).
Clinical Corner: What's New in the Treatment of Meniere's Disease?
Meniere's disease does not have a definitive cure but there are treatment options to control the symptoms depending on the stage of the disease. Dietary and lifestyle changes are the first step of the treatment and work very well for the majority of patients with Meniere's disease. Because we believe there is an overlap between Meniere's disease and migraine, we advise patients to refrain from eating foods that have been shown to trigger migraine attacks. Learn more about about new treatments for this disease.
Special Notice! The Support Group meeting scheduled for Sunday, August 23, 2015, has been cancelled and rescheduled to Wednesday, September 9, 2015. For more information, email the Nurse Facilitator Patrice Saurman, RN, BSN, at email@example.com.
