A Letter from the Chair

Amazing things happen when we spend time connecting with others on issues that matter. We see this phenomenon every day in medicine, and it’s the inspiration for Face to Face, our new bimonthly e-newsletter for physicians collaborating with Houston Methodist’s Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.
Ear, nose and throat (ENT) care has become increasingly complex as we navigate new and emerging medical devices, noninvasive therapies, robotic technologies and state-of-the-art surgical techniques. By combining a personalized approach with the latest research and technology, we can deliver specialized solutions for each patient’s unique needs.
