Founded in 1820 and now one of the world’s leading facilities for treating diseases of the eyes, ears, nose, and throat, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) combines a rich history of specialty care with award-winning clinical excellence in order to serve our community, as well as patients from the Tri-State area, across the nation, and internationally. In addition to our main campus near Union Square, NYEE is growing a network of satellite offices and freestanding ambulatory surgery centers, making access to the newest diagnostic services, advanced treatments, and clinical trials more convenient to our patients’ workplaces and homes.
In addition to providing skilled primary through tertiary care, NYEE is home to breakthrough clinical research that has introduced now widely practiced diagnostic and surgical techniques. Our physicians are also passing the tradition of excellence onto future generations through highly competitive residency programs in ophthalmology and otolaryngology, plus dozens of post-graduate ophthalmology fellowship positions. Through this combination of superb patient care, innovative research, and rigorous education, NYEE is maintaining a leadership position in the fields of ophthalmology, otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
