Welcome to OtoNotes. We have developed this site with the goal to bring Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery related education to the tips of your fingers. There are many resources available for comprehensive Ear Nose and Throat related education. However, our goal is to provide that information in a simple, summarized form that is quickly and easily available.

We are always looking for ways to improve our vision and goal so if you have any suggestions or want to join us, please contact us at otonotes@gmail.com.
