  • Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences

    The Department of Otolaryngology and Communicative Sciences has outstanding capabilities and leaders in education, research and clinical care. Its first-class divisions of otolaryngology, audiology, speech-language pathology, research and biobehavioral medicine provide a broad spectrum of clinical services for patients of all ages as well as some of the most comprehensive care in the region.

    The division of otolaryngology includes several subspecialties, including otology and neurotology, rhinology, laryngology, head and neck oncology and endocrinology, and facial plastic surgery. Pediatric otolaryngology offers a wide range of services for infants, children and adolescents, from routine ENT problems to voice, speech and hearing impairments. Our otolaryngologists are board-certified physicians and are fellowship trained in the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of these disorders.

    The division of audiology specializes in the assessment of hearing in infants and children, amplification and cochlear implants for children and adults, management of tinnitus and the assessment of balance disorders and dizziness. All audiologists hold doctoral degrees and are licensed by the state of Mississippi. 

    Our speech pathologists provide state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment for infants, children and adults. Their expertise includes the evaluation and treatment of voice disorders, swallowing disorders, feeding disorders, and communication deficits associated with hearing loss, developmental delay, craniofacial abnormalities, head injury and stroke. All speech pathologists hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence and are licensed by the state of Mississippi. 

    The ACT Center for Tobacco Treatment, Education and Research program uses medications and counseling to educate patients and help them break their tobacco habits; they also offer a training program for health care providers.

    We are committed to serving our patients and the community, and to making significant contributions in the field of medicine. For our patients' convenience we see patients at the Lakeland Medical Building on the edge of the campus of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, University Physicians Pavilion on the main campus, The Face and Skin Center of University Physicians in Ridgeland, the Cancer Institute at the Jackson Medical Mall and at University Physicians-Grants Ferry in Rankin County.
