Department of Otolaryngology - Service Chief Reports
Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology
Joshua B. Silverman, MD, PhD
The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, now in its 20th year of existence, has continued to achieve excellence in patient care, teaching, and research during the 2011-2012 academic year.
Continuing our expansion of clinical practices at multiple sites, Drs. Goldstein and Silverman now have weekly office hours and operative cases in both Brooklyn Heights and central Brooklyn. Dr. Sydney Butts is working to create a multi-disciplinary Cleft and Craniofacial Center, which offers comprehensive care for very challenging patients. Dr. Ari Goldsmith has moved his practice to Maimonides Medical Center, though he continues his academic responsibilities as Associate Professor at SUNY Downstate. A priority for the coming year is to continue to merge clinical activities between all three campuses of SUNY Downstate Medical Center, including the Bay Ridge campus.
Academic pursuits remain strong priorities as the Division continues to forge a national reputation. Richard Rosenfeld, MD, MPH, continues as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, and he recently completed a year-long term as President of the American Society for Pediatric Otolaryngology. Nira Goldstein, MD, MPH, was honored as a Fellow of the Triological Society, and received the Triological Society Mosher Award for most outstanding research. Peer-reviewed manuscripts were published in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, and Archives of Otolaryngology- Head & Neck Surgery. Additionally, Joshua Silverman, MD, PhD, and Nira Goldstein, MD, MPH, were honored with teaching awards within the University.
The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology continues to grow clinically and academically. Five full-time pediatric otolaryngologists are active within our Department, maintaining the largest division in the New York metropolitan region.
