About

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 exceptional. I left another specialist and have been a patient of Dr. Rodriguez's for at least sex years. He's performed surgery on me and has provided regular care also. He is approachable and conducts interactive office visits, while providing excellent explanations of everything from medications to different treatments and outcomes. He is an exemplar among his peers and I would recommend him to my friends and family. His nurses, receptionists, and his scribe are also very kind and respectful. The entire experience is a 10 out of 10!

I was told that another doctors office would contact me regarding a mouthpiece for sleep apnea. I haven't heard anything and it's been a few weeks. Doctor Rodrigues was absolutely amazing. He listened attentively, addressed all of my questions, and explained everything very well. Seriously one of the best doctors I've had the pleasure of interacting with in my long medical journey. I wish all docs were like him.

Dr. Kenneth Rodriguez is an amazing provider! Each time I have seen him, he has taken the time fully listen to my concerns and explain everything to me in a manner that I would understand. He even took the time to draw some pictures out to help me to better understand. I walked out of my most recent appointment feeling very hopeful about my future plan of care. I immediately texted several family members and friends saying "if you ever need an ENT you have to see Dr. Rodriguez." The staff in his office is also very friendly and helpful. I recently saw one of my other providers and was explaining what a great experience I had with my recent ENT visit. When she asked who my ENT was she was not surprised. She said she has heard many great things about him from several of her other patients! If I could give him higher than a 10/10 in this survey I would! Thank you Dr. Rodriguez for the great care you provide.
