Center Overview

ChicagoENT—an Advanced Center for Specialty Care was developed to provide a resource center for patients with complicated problems of the upper airway, such as snoring, sleep apnea, sinusitis, and tumors of the thyroid, throat, and neck. The center has a staff of otolaryngologists, an allergist, and consultants in sleep medicine, pulmonary medicine, and oral surgery.

ChicagoENT is a private practice comprised of two Chicago patient-care sites that offer comprehensive Ear, Nose, and Throat care to the entire city. With nine staff members - three head & neck surgeons, one facial cosmetic reconstructive surgeon, one allergist/immunologist, one dental sleep specialist, one radiologist and two audiologists - we are able to provide care for all ENT-related issues, ranging from Sleep Apnea to parathyroid problems to sinuses to peritonsillar abscesses.
