Head and Neck Care
The mission of the New York Head and Neck Institute of North Shore-LIJ Health System is to provide seamless, integrated care for people with diseases, disorders and tumors of the head and neck. What is unique about the New York Head and Neck Institute is that we were founded specifically to treat any patient suffering from any disorder of the head and neck at one location by top physicians in otolaryngology (ENT) and related specialties (neurology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, endocrinology, etc).
We present an "optimal care environment" to our patients so that their problems get solved even if they have previouslybeen told that there might not be a solution. We achieve this by integrating the expertise and efforts of multiple physicians from many different specialties so that they can work together, focused on each patient’s specific problem. At the New York Head and Neck Institute, our patients always come first.
The New York Head and Neck Institute includes 10 specialty Centers of Excellence, which are composed of physicians who are experts in their area of head and neck care. These centers focus on diverse areas of specialization, ranging from cranial base surgery to head and neck oncology to sleep disorders. Our physicians see more cases of just about any condition of the head and neck than the vast majority of facilities across the country, and this exposure to a broad range of conditions combined with the skill of our physicians make us a local, regional and international destination for head and neck care.
The Center for Voice & Swallowing Disorders
The Center's comprehensive core program of excellence can trace its history back to 1869, when otolaryngologists practicing at Manhattan Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital (MEETH) began to care for patients with voice and swallowing disorders. Working with other specialists in these disorders in New York City, they would help to found the New York Laryngological Society (NYLS) and later the American Laryngological Association (ALA).
