  • Clinical Instructor, CWRU School of Medicine

Jonathan Frankel, MD is a board-certified otolaryngologist at University Hospitals. In addition, he is fellowship-trained in facial plastic surgery and has a focused interest in facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, skin resurfacing, and facial contouring with aesthetic injectables. Dr. Frankel values the trust that patients place in him, and he seeks to use his skills to help his patients achieve their aesthetic and functional goals.

Dr. Frankel’s extensive training in head and neck and facial plastic surgery gives him a unique understanding of the form and function of the face. Initially drawn to this field by his background in the fine arts, he particularly loves the marriage of art and medicine in facial cosmetic surgery.

After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 2007, Dr. Frankel attended Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, where he earned his medical doctorate and received the Medicine Legacy Award. He went on to complete a five-year surgical residency in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery at UH Cleveland Medical Center. Dr. Frankel then furthered his training when he was selected for a prestigious facial plastic surgery fellowship at the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dr. Frankel has been widely published in textbooks and peer-reviewed journals on a variety of topics including facelift surgery, nasal surgery and the surgical correction of ear deformities. In addition, he has presented his work at local, regional and international surgical conferences. Passionate about using his training to care for the underprivileged, Dr. Frankel has served on multiple international medical expeditions to Honduras, Uganda and Belize and received the American Academy of Otolaryngology – HNS Foundation Humanitarian Travel Award.

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.
