Ear, Nose, and Throat (Otolaryngology)

The sound of a loved one's laughter; the taste of deep dish pizza; the smell of lavender in your own garden — we rely on our ears, nose, and throat to get the most out of life. The Department of Otolaryngology at UI Health are among Chicago's leading experts in diagnosing and treating problems of the ears, nose, and throat.
