In its commitment to continuing medical education, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center is hosting an Otolaryngology Lecture Series featuring prominent national and internationally-renowned physicians. Otolaryngology deals with the treatment of head, neck, ear, nasal and sinus disorders. David W. Kennedy, MD, FACS, FRCI, who is considered the father of modern endoscopic surgery, presented “The Evolution of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery,” followed by a question and answer session at Englewood Hospital on May 17.

“I believe that this presentation and future lectures will highlight Englewood Hospital as a leader of academic learning in the field of Otolaryngology,” said David Henick, MD, Chief of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Englewood Hospital.

More than 60 otolaryngologists, allergists, internists and pediatricians from the greater New York and Bergen County area were in attendance. Many participants expressed that this was probably one of the largest single gatherings of otolaryngologists for an event in Bergen County.
