Taking Care of You Philosophy

Our People: Taking Care of You Philosophy

At Vanderbilt Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, we do things differently - with distinction. The multidisciplinary environment at the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center focuses on taking care of our patients, working across all specialties to ensure that patient care is our highest priority. Our otolaryngology experts are leaders in their respective fields and bring that expertise to caring for our patients each day.

Our staff was given the opportunity to interact with our patients in a transformative rather than a transactional or corporate manner. The staff coined the phrase "Taking Care of You" to greet and thank our patients. 

Vanderbilt Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery is proud to host the largest cochlear implant program in the hemisphere and one of the largest skull-based programs in the world, as well as one of the busiest overall otolaryngology programs in the country. We're the place you go for expert care - our expertise, patient care, and research are second to none.

Coordination of Care

As a national leader in otolaryngology, we see patients from all 50 states and around the world. Our Otolaryngology team has worked to streamline coordination of care, offering out-of-town patients a full day of appointments that can include, diagnosis, creation of a care plan, and, in some circumstances, even surgery on the same day.

Our specialists, leadership, and resources have brought international renown to the Vanderbilt Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery program. Our team knows that healthcare is always evolving, and we are committed to growing with it to provide the best possible care for each of our patient's unique needs.
