Chair's Message

Paul Friedlander, MDCentered in New Orleans, Tulane University's Otolaryngology Departments serves 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.

Reflecting upon our rich history, and eagerly looking towards the future, we 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.

Paul Friedlander, MD
Chair, Department of Otolaryngology
Associate Professor of Surgery, Section of Head & Neck Surgery
