University of Vermont Otolaryngology Residency Program
The Residency Program in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Vermont (UVM) began in 1959 and it has grown to include ten faculty members, each with a special area of expertise. Together, we can provide a comprehensive training experience in not only the general management of head and neck disorders, but we also offer training in otology, neurotology, skull-base surgery, head and neck surgery, reconstruction, endoscopic sinus and skullbase surgery, laryngology as well as endocrine surgery.
The Otolaryngology Division at the University of Vermont/Fletcher Allen receives complex referrals from the upper two-thirds of Vermont and a generous segment of upstate New York. Facial, plastic, and reconstructive surgery is performed by a fellowship trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Endocrine disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands are treated with current technology including diagnostic ultrasound. Diseases of the paranasal sinuses are managed medically with allergy testing and desensitization and surgical intervention with both open and functional endoscopic surgical techniques.
A fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist provides a broad range of services. A comprehensive voice and laryngology program provides videostroboscopy and all aspects of laryngeal surgery. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea and snoring are evaluated and treated with a variety of medical and surgical options. A comprehensive audiology and vestibular testing facility under the direction of three masters-trained audiologists provides complete diagnostic service and patient recommendations for effective amplification.
