Our statewide network is led by skilled specialists who employ the most innovative therapies and methods to treat conditions of the head and neck. Our physicians not only provide high-quality care for patients but contribute to the field of otolaryngology through cutting-edge research.
We provide complete otolaryngology care for children and adults. Our subspecialty areas focus on areas of the head and neck that may benefit from surgical intervention, everything from inserting drainage tubes in the ears of a child suffering from frequent and severe ear infections to complex surgery for the removal of a tumor at the base of the skull.
This specialty offers many sub-specialists who focus their skills and expertise on the alleviation of ear, nose and throat problems for adults and children.

Action on Hearing Loss
Action on Hearing Loss is pleased to welcome OCTC as a partner in our Translational Research Initiative for Hearing (TRIH) which aims to advance medicines to protect and restore hearing, and silence tinnitus. This co-marketing relationship will serve their mutual customers with a full set of services supporting clinical trials of new therapeutics, procedures, and medical devices. A customer can now access the OCTC’s network of leading clinical investigators and identified patient populations for their trials by contacting either party.

- Fund discovery and translational hearing research internationally
- Provide links to key opinion leaders, therapy area experts and leading research groups
