Welcome to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ. The Department serves as the major tertiary clinical referral source in the State of New Jersey.  This website provides information and links for patients, students and physicians in training, and practicing physicians.

The field of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery encompasses the care of patients with a broad range of problems, conditions, and diseases. Our specialty is commonly referred to as "Ear, Nose and Throat" although our practice encompasses much more. We are dedicated to the care of patients with problems involving the ears, nose and sinuses, mouth, throat and voice, as well as the neck and skin. Such problems include a large variety of congenital, inflammatory, and infectious diseases, as well as benign and malignant tumors.

Patients are invited to explore our website to learn more about the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and our physicians and programs. We also offer information about a number of diseases that we commonly treat, and convenient links to relevant websites.

Students and candidates for residency and fellowship positions are invited to explore and learn more about our medical student clerkships and residency and fellowship programs.
