American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery

The American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), one of the oldest medical associations in the nation, represents nearly 12,000 physicians and allied health professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the ears, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck. The AAO-HNS Foundation is pleased to partner with the Choosing Wisely® campaign. We are enthusiastic about the potential to address in a very practical manner ways to reduce waste, improve quality care, and engage physicians and their patients in making better health care choices. Choosing Wisely complements the Foundation’s quality agenda that focuses on empowering physicians to provide the best patient care through the development of evidence-based guidelines, identifying tools, services, and processes that lead to safe care in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery.
