Professional History

Dr. Brodsky completed his residency training in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY and then completed a fellowship in Pediatric Otolaryngology at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He was invited to join the staff in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement at Boston Children’s Hospital following his fellowship in 2012.

Although experienced in all facets of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Dr. Brodsky’s primary area of clinical expertise is in the medical and surgical management of pediatric middle and inner ear disease, including hearing loss, congenital ossicular anomalies, cholesteatoma, and chronic otitis media. He is trained in endoscopic ear surgery (EES), which allows most ear surgeries to be performed entirely through the ear canal in a minimally invasive fashion with less pain and a quicker recovery than traditional, microscope-based ear surgery.
