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.

Consistently ranked among U.S. News & World Report’s top hospitals in New York City and top medical schools for research, we offer otolaryngology—head and neck surgery educational programs for medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate and postdoctoral students.
