Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
Welcome to the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery based in Newark, NJ. As of July 1, 2013, the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act went into effect, integrating Rutgers with the two largest allopathic medical schools in the state: The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) in Newark and Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick. The integration of our medical schools, along with other schools within the allied health scienes, made it possible to form the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS). The academic Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery is based on the Newark Campus, which is also where the residency and fellowship programs are located. The department is chaired by Dr. Soly Baredes, who has been the Chairman/Chief of the department for the past 24 years. He is one of the longest acting chairman in the country.
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 head and neck cancer surgery, rhinology, skull base surgery, otology/neurotology, cochlear implantation, head and neck surgical oncology, Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) and microvascular reconstructive surgery.
