The division of general otorhinolaryngology focuses on state-of-the-art treatment of a wide variety of diseases of the head and neck. In just one day in our clinic, residents may see patients with head and neck tumors, both cancerous and noncancerous; sinus problems and allergic diseases; thyroid and parathyroid surgery; snoring and sleep apnea issues, or patients with ear, nose and throat (ENT) disorders.
The division is led by the co-directors of general otorhinolaryngology, Dr. Jeffrey Wolf and Dr. Rodney Taylor, and the attending physician for General Otorhinolaryngology is Dr. John Biedlingmaier. We utilize the newest technologies in otorhinolaryngology, including pillar implants for snoring, image-guided sinus surgery and intraoperative nerve monitoring for complex head and neck surgery.
Drs. Wolf, Taylor and Biedlingmaier have active research careers, and it is the hope of the division to incorporate cutting-edge research into daily clinical care.
