The physicians of Kentuckiana Ear, Nose & Throat provide comprehensive ear, nose and throat medical and surgical services and keep abreast of the evolving field of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery to provide the highest level of expertise in our fields. Four of the six physicians in our practice provide care in all aspects of general otolaryngology, while two of our physicians tailor their practice to sub-specialized areas of focus. Our practice is able to accommodate and treat all aspects of otolaryngologic care.

Kentuckiana Ear, Nose & Throat was established in Louisville, Kentucky by doctors Burton J. Cohen and Kenneth L. Silk in 1974. The practice has since expanded and currently provides coverage to the Greater Louisville area. The scope of the practice has similarly expanded to include fellowship trained ear, nose and throat subspecialists in areas of complex rhinology, facial plastic surgery, and neurotology.
