Past Department Directors

The Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery got its start in medicine and at Johns Hopkins much like the specialties of urology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, and radiology. The specialty was a creation of the perceptive vision of William Stewart Halsted, one of the four founding physicians of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Read more about our past directors below:
