About Us

University Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists, the clinical practice of the UPMC Department of Otolaryngology, includes board-certified physicians, fellows, and residents, as well as speech-language pathologists and audiologists. The physicians in the practice provide the entire range of otolaryngology services to patients throughout the region as well as the world, and have been serving Pittsburgh for more than 30 years.

The practice is best known for cutting-edge treatment of cancers and tumors, dizziness, hearing loss, and sinusitis, and provides community-level care throughout our region. The offices emphasize convenient access through a variety of locations and scheduling options.

University Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists provides specialized services through many subspecialties. To best serve patients, we offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services for the management of conditions of the ear, nose, and throat, and related structures of the head and neck. Subspecialties of the practice include:

Most patients can expect their problem to be addressed by an experienced otolaryngologist within several days, often within a single visit. Complex problems that require sub-specialty services will usually require more than one visit, however, and are expedited through an initial evaluation to determine the need for more information to assist the subspecialty evaluation and treatment.

University Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists is part of the UPMC Eye & Ear Institute, based in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. We offer locations throughout western Pennsylvania for the convenience of our patients.

In addition to treating patients, our physicians also participate in research and clinical trials and in organizing/facilitating continuing medical education seminars nationwide.
