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).
