Tampa General Hospital’s Ear, Nose & Throat Institute provides nationally recognized treatment for disorders of the ear, nose and throat, which are part of the medical field of otolaryngology. This specialty also encompasses related structures of the head and neck.

Tampa General Hospital is recognized as One of the Nation's Best Hospitals for Ear, Nose & Throat by U.S. News & World Report 2023-24.

Additionally, Tampa General is one of only three hospitals in Florida to earn placement on Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals 2022 list for our commitment to providing world-class, compassionate care.

A Comprehensive Ear, Nose & Throat Center

From diagnosing nasal obstructions and chronic sinusitis to addressing thyroid and parathyroid disease—and even treating patients in our American Academies of Sleep Medicine (AASM)-accredited Sleep Disorders Center—TGH offers the highest level of care. Our patients receive compassionate and comprehensive services from a multidisciplinary team of internationally and nationally renowned physicians trained in the medical and surgical treatment of otolaryngological disorders.

The team at TGH’s Ear, Nose & Throat Institute comprises a wide variety of specialists, including otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons, head and neck oncologists and microvascular surgeons, otologists/neurotologists, audiologists, pediatric otolaryngologists and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons.


World-Class ENT Surgery by Experts

The multidisciplinary team at the Ear, Nose & Throat Institute has decades of experience providing treatments to patients with ENT conditions with high success, even in the most complex surgeries. In fact, we perform:

  • More parathyroid operations than any other hospital in the world —with close to 100% cure rates.
  • Advanced skin cancer surgery involving facial and skin reconstruction which dermatologists cannot perform.
  • Microvascular flap reconstruction surgery for major head and neck reconstruction—a surgery that very few centers perform.

TGH is also one of only three academic centers in the region to offer a combined skull base head and neck cancer program and skull base surgery, bringing experts from the Ear, Nose & Throat and Neuroscience Institutes together to improve patient outcomes.

State-of-the-Art ENT Treatments

Tampa General Hospital is committed to providing the best care for patients with ear, nose and throat conditions, regardless of complexity. Our experts are involved in groundbreaking research and clinical trials, and they stay abreast of technical advancements in care. This allows us to treat patients individually, based on their unique needs, with favorable outcomes.

This is especially evident when it comes to treating cancers in the tonsils and base of the tongue caused by HPV, or the human papillomavirus. We perform minimally invasive surgery using the da Vinci SP (single port) robotic surgical system which offers many patients an effective alternative to more extensive operations.

At TGH, our approach to care is centered around the patient experience, and at the Ear, Nose & Throat Institute, there is no “one-size-fits-all treatment.” We create in-depth care plans that start with accurate diagnoses and involve individualized treatments and pre- and post-treatment support.

In fact, our extensive support services are essential to our patients. From having access to nurse navigators and virtual no-fee consultations for parathyroid and thyroid concerns, to working with speech-language pathologists and nutritionists, our patients have all the necessary resources available to them throughout their health care journey.
