About Our Program

We like a challenge. There is no otolaryngology−head and neck surgery problem that is too complex or too routine for us. And we provide this comprehensive care in one place. You won’t be referred anywhere else for a test or procedure.

Restore You to Health and Wholeness

UC Health offers care for every otolaryngology−head and neck surgery need you may have.

We’re happy to have the opportunity to provide the care they need to restore their health and wholeness.

Don’t just think of us as your “last stop.” We also provide care for seasonal allergies, swimmer’s ear, chronic ear infections, snoring and other conditions that may affect your lifestyle.
