Jennifer L. Heydt, MD, is a board-certified surgeon of otolaryngology. Her clinical interests include head and neck cancer, sinusitis, nasal obstruction, facial trauma, sleep apnea, snoring, ear infections, hearing loss, voice problems, tonsil and adenoid issues, and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. She enjoys seeing patients in all age groups.
She enjoys otolaryngology because she gets to see a broad range of patients, including children and adults, and because she has the opportunity to treat a variety of problems, simple and complex. She believes in finding simple interventions that can lead to an immediate and effective cure. She is interested in spending time with her patients and listening to every patient’s concerns.
While in medical school, she traveled to study and research in Mexico, Guatemala, and Thailand. She has presented her research across the country and has been published in the journals Head & Neck, Hearing Research, and Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.
