Anne Hseu, MD, is a graduate of Stanford University (2001) and Northwestern University Medical School (2007).  She completed her Otolaryngology--Head and Neck surgery training at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.  She is also dual fellowship trained in Pediatric Otolaryngology from Boston Children’s Hospital and Laryngology from Massachusetts General Hospital.

Her primary clinical and research interests include Voice and Laryngeal Disorders in children and adolescents.   She is extensively trained in microlaryngeal surgery and  use of the potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser to treat problems such as early glottic cancer, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, vocal fold paralysis and airway stenosis.  She was also fortunate to work with many well-known singers and performers during her fellowship year with Dr. Steven Zeitels at Massachusetts General Hospital.  As a result, she loves to work with children involved in the performing arts and patients with professional voice aspirations.  She is involved in the specialty Voice Disorders clinic and Velopharyngeal Insufficiency clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital.
