Boston, Mass. — Matthew Naunheim, MD, MBA, a fellowship-trained laryngologist specializing in voice, airway, laryngeal cancer and swallowing disorders, has recently joined the Laryngology Division of Mass. Eye and Ear. He is currently accepting new patients at Mass. Eye and Ear’s main campus (243 Charles Street, Boston).
“Mass. Eye and Ear provides the best care anywhere for ear, nose and throat conditions,” Dr. Naunheim said. “I am honored to be able to share my expertise with this community.”
Dr. Naunheim earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School and his MBA from Harvard Business School. He subsequently completed his residency training in otolaryngology at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School, followed by fellowship training in laryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
In his research activities at Mass. Eye and Ear, Dr. Naunheim studies patient quality-of-life outcomes in surgery using advanced valuation techniques to quantitatively assess patient preferences. His past work has used these techniques to establish tradeoffs between risk of complication, likelihood of surgical success and postoperative voice quality for laryngo-tracheal surgery. These innovations all have the potential to directly impact the practice of laryngology by providing a better understanding of patient preferences.
To make an appointment with Dr. Naunheim, request one online or call 617-573-4402.
