Department of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery
NYU Langone Health’s Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery delivers excellence and innovation in diagnosing, managing, and treating ear, nose, and throat disorders and providing medical and surgical care for acquired and congenital head and neck conditions. We are proud to have performed the first pediatric auditory brainstem implantation in the United States in 2012, and remain the only hospital in the region to offer the procedure for patients with neurofibromatosis type 2.
