Congratulations to Mary Ying who has recently joined the Department of Otolaryngology


Yu-Lan Mary Ying, M.D.

As of September of this year, we are expanding our otology/neurotology division to include Dr. Mary Ying, who is currently an Assistant Professor at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans.  Dr. Ying completed her undergraduate studies in chemical engineering at MIT before graduating with distinction in research from Stony Brook School of Medicine, which included a year-long Howard Hughes scholarship at the NIH.  She then finished her otolaryngology residency at the University of Pittsburgh, followed by a fellowship with the Pittsburgh Ear Associates and then a neurotology fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.  She brings a wealth of surgical experience and expertise in vestibular disorders, so we look forward to having her on our team!



Rutgers NJ Medical School Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery

Welcome to the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. The department has a long history of treating patients with disorders of the ear, nose, throat, and related surrounding structures in the head and neck. In addition to providing excellent patient care in general otolaryngology, we have fellowship trained expertise in various otolaryngology subspecialties, including skull base cancer surgery, otology/neurotology, pediatric otolaryngology, surgical oncology and microvascular reconstructive surgery. We have been an independent department since 2011 and continue to grow. Along with exceptional patient care, we have a very strong clinical research program that has resulted in over 150 peer reviewed publications in the past 5 years. Our medical students, residents and faculty have presented numerous posters and oral presentations both nationally and regionally. Additionally, our department is a broad based training program devoted to training both academic and clinical otolaryngologists. Whether it is using Lasers or Robotic Surgery to remove tumors from the throat or implanting Cochlear Implants into deaf children, our faculty continue to provide excellent patient care with minimally invasive, cutting edge technology. Our emphasis on excellent patient care, extraordinary research, and a strong educational program has earned our department a reputation that ranks among the best in the nation.




It is a very exciting time for our institution with the recent integration of New Jersey Medical School with Rutgers University. As of July 1, 2013, the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act went into effect, integrating Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, with most all units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). Already a leading national research university, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, stands as one of America’s largest, most comprehensive university-based centers for health care. In the coming years, our department will benefit from this integration by drawing top faculty, residents and students, deepen our research collaborations, improve coordination of health care and potentially increase overall institutional funding for various otolaryngology endeavors.
