Chair's Message

Paul FriedlanderAs we enter our 97th year, we have the privilege of not only reflecting upon our rich history, but can eagerly look towards the future. Centered in New Orleans, we serve as a vital resource providing otolaryngology care for both public and private patients. Our downtown campus, as well as our historic affiliations with the Ochsner Clinic, MCLNO, Touro Infirmary and the Veterans Administration Hospital, has provided the framework for outstanding patient care and an outstanding resident educational experience.

Eight years after Hurricane Katrina, we continue to be an integral part of rebuilding New Orleans. We have reopened our public clinics at MCLNO and remain dedicated to serving our community at need. We have developed Healing Hands Across the Divide – a faith and community based partnership focused on eradicating cancer health disparity in the Greater New Orleans area.

Our challenges at a local and national level are great. The solutions are being discovered. It is my goal to have this department play an integral part in the national reshaping of our health care system. We look forward to working with those who dare to take this challenge.
