Biography

  • Chief, Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery, University Hospitals
  • Assistant Professor, CWRU School of Medicine

Kenneth Rodriguez, MD, joined the Department of Otolaryngology at University Hospitals in 2013. A native of upstate New York, he obtained a business economics degree at Brown University. Dr. Rodriguez attended medical school at the University of Pittsburgh and did his residency in Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He completed a sinus and skull base fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Rodriguez is Division Chief of Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery at University Hospitals. This specialty includes surgical treatments for a variety of conditions ranging from nose-related breathing difficulties to benign and cancerous lesions. Dr. Rodriguez’s goal is to give patients the most comprehensive care possible. To that end, in many cases, surgical intervention is performed with a partner from neurosurgery, oculoplastic surgery or plastic surgery based on the needs of the patient. Joint procedures allow patients to have two specially trained providers accomplishing different goals during the same surgical intervention and are often practiced through the Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery division at University Hospitals.

Dr. Rodriguez has published a number of articles through peer-reviewed journals on issues related to the nose and sinuses. He also reviews articles for publication for four otolaryngology journals. In addition, he has written multiple book chapters related to medical and surgical management of sinus problems. Dr. Rodriguez is a frequent speaker at local, regional and national meetings.

Dr. Kenneth Rodriguez is a super great doctor, one of the best I've seen at UH. He is very knowledgeable (but doesn't flaunt it - humble), professional, sincere, is upfront about ways to treat the condition, tells you all your options, does things in a way comfortable to the patient, explains things in lay terms, supports what he is saying with images from CT scans, and has a good understanding of modern technology, computers. And the respect he shows to the resident learning from him is commendable. As he is working on a patient, he let's the resident know what he is doing and what the resident should be seeing. UH is very lucky to have Dr. Rodriguez. I am sure he is helping a LOT of patients!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Rodriguez and his entire staff are wonderful. When I go to see him I feel very comfortable and they are very attentive. Dr. Rodriguez makes sure to ask the right questions and gives me time to tell him what I'm feeling and he takes it from there. I would recommend him for sure. In fact my nephew was needing an ENT and I am going to get him the information.

I highly failed it the fact that he listened to my concerns and took the time to go over things and how we would address them. He definitely demonstrates a concern and interest in his patient and does not treat us like we're on some conveyor belt and he is in a hurry to get on to the next one. I would go so far to say he is exactly what a good physician is supposed to be.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
