Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Our outstanding faculty provide the full spectrum of modern Otolaryngologic care, from pediatrics to geriatrics, including the latest advances in technology and evidence-based practice. We now have 5 outpatient practice sites in Manhattan, and one in Westchester County.

There are many exciting things happening in the Department. The most recent is our move into brand-new beautiful space for our Sean Parker Institute for the Voice . Under the leadership of Lucian Sulica, MD, the Sean Parker Professor of Otolaryngology, and Babek Sadoughi, MD, the Parker Institute is expanding its clinical care, research, and educational programs. In addition to the Parker Institute, other subspecialty programs such as cochlear implantation and implantable hearing devices, robotic surgery, salivary sialendoscopy, skull base surgery, and allergy testing and treatment all continue to grow. In addition, we were the first center in New York City to perform the hypoglossal nerve implantable stimulator for obstructive sleep apnea.

Our Department continues to sponsor several highly-rated and well-attended CME and CEU programs. Our faculty publish dozens of peer-reviewed articles every year, are invited to speak at many national and international meetings, and serve as leaders in national specialty and subspecialty societies. Our Department is also the administrative home for the Center for the Performing Arts at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. The Center continues to grow, and is now an official health care provider for the Metropolitan Opera, the Julliard School, and Carnegie Hall, and it has become an important resource for the large performing artist community in New York City.

Together with Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, we sponsor an outstanding residency training program in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. With rotations at Columbia, Weill Cornell, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Lincoln Hospital and the Bronx VA, our residents receive comprehensive training and exposure to an enormous variety of patients and faculty.

Thank you for your interest in our Department.

Sincerely,
Michael G. Stewart MD, MPH
Professor and Chairman
