About Kentuckiana ENTOur History and Our Mission
Our Practice History
Kentuckiana Ear, Nose & Throat was established in Louisville, Kentucky by doctors Burton J. Cohen and Kenneth L. Silk in 1974. At that time, it was known as Cohen & Silk, PSC. With the addition of partners, it grew from a single location in downtown Louisville to include offices in the east end of Louisville and in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The Jeffersonville office came about as a result of a merger with what was at that time known as Kentuckiana Ear, Nose & Throat, the Jeffersonville practice of Dr. George Rudwell, a close colleague of the practice.
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.
