Chair's Welcome Message

Jastin Antisdel, MD

On behalf of the faculty, residents and staff of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Saint Louis University, I welcome you to our website. Please take your time to explore all that our department does: including residency training, cutting edge research, and premier patient care.

Our residency training program continues to produce excellent surgeons and researchers. Currently we have one 2020 graduate doing Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship at University of Colorado, and both our 2021 graduates have matched into fellowship programs in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Follow the residents’ adventures (and the department) on Instagram @SLU.ENT.

The faculty, residents and students continue to publish and perform excellent research. Dr. Jennifer Brinkmeier is successfully participating in the Clinical Research Scholars Program offered by the AHEAD Institute at Saint Louis University. Scholars were chosen based on their potential for research scholarship and external funding rotations. Please visit our research page to see all the exciting new endeavors.

The Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Division has now grown with the addition of Dr. Collin Chen in August 2020. Dr. Chen provides the full spectrum of facial plastic surgery services. Our medical spa offers surgical and non-surgical treatments and skincare consultations and services. Keep up with our Facial Plastic Division by following us on social media @slucaremedspa on Instagram, and @SLUCareMedicalSpa on Facebook.

Finally, the brand new Saint Louis University Hospital and the Center for Specialized Medicine on the Grand Avenue campus is complete, as is the new SLUCare Academic Pavilion. We began seeing patients in this beautiful new facility in September 2020 and moved into our new administrative offices in June 2020.
