Philosophy of Care

Having completed sub-specialty training in both Pediatric Otolaryngology and Endocrine Surgery I have combined my greatest interests, and hope to bring this experience and provide expert level care to all kids in need at Boston Children's Hospital.


Dr. Jennifer Brooks began her Otolaryngology training in Los Angeles at University of Southern California, known for its diverse patient population and excellent clinical experience. She then bolstered her training with dual fellowships in Boston, MA, in Pediatric Otolaryngology and Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery. She brings a unique combination of surgical training back to Boston Children's, with the aim of treating children with disorders of the neck, salivary glands, and thyroid. Her academic interests include work in Quality Improvement as well as residency education and training.
