Department of Otolaryngology 

Ear, Nose and Throat Care

A teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts Eye and Ear combines the expertise of highly specialized otolaryngology physicians, audiologists, speech-language pathologists and auxiliary healthcare professionals to provide clinical care for patients with problems affecting the ear, nose, throat, head and neck areas. We’re one of the largest otolaryngology departments in the country, with more than 60 physicians staffed at 12 locations in the greater Boston area, representing all subspecialty areas of otolaryngology. Physically connected to Massachusetts General Hospital, Mass. Eye and Ear and its staff members comprise the Department of Otolaryngology at both institutions, allowing them to collaborate on a variety of patient care facilities.

Our clinical commitment is strengthened by Mass. Eye and Ear’s robust research presence. Our large, productive community of otolaryngology researchers has a long history of medical breakthroughs, including the discovery of stem cells in the adult inner ear and the ability to screen infants at birth for deafness. Together, our physicians and scientists are working to advance the care we provide to our patients.

BHentIn recognition of our strong commitment to our patients, U.S. News & World Report ranked Mass. Eye and Ear as the #1 hospital in the nation for otolaryngology care in their 2015–2016 hospital survey.
