The faculty of Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine have interests and experience in virtually every area of our expansive specialty. Though otolaryngology focuses on disorders in the ear, nose, and throat, our faculty members teach, conduct research, and provide care (at Feinberg-affiliated care sites) related to hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language, as well as cancers of the head and neck and reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.
