Dr. J. Courtney French, Jr. recently moved from Southern California to join the Ear, Nose, and Throat Institute. Dr. French received his bachelors degree in biology from Southern Adventist University, and went on to obtain a master of science degree from Georgia State University. Following this, he attended medical school at Loma Linda University in Southern California, graduating with honors in surgery.
Dr. French then stayed at Loma Linda University Medical Center for surgical internship and residency in otolaryngology, head and neck surgery. Dr. French has a special interest in adult and pediatric disorders of sinuses and sleep disturbance. In particular, he is interested in the use of endosopic surgical techniques in the approach to these diseases, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
At Loma Linda University, Dr. French received extensive instruction in these techniques in one of the highest volume surgical residencies on the west coast. He has also furthered his training through numerous courses in the areas of advanced endoscopic sinus surgery, laryngeal surgery, minimally invasive endoscopic endocrine surgery in the head and neck, and advanced techniques in otologic surgery.
Through these advanced training opportunities, Dr. French has received hands-on training and direct surgical instruction with pioneers in these fields from Stanford University, Vanderbilt University, University of Pittsburgh, and the House Ear Institute. Also active in research, Dr. French has given presentations at national meetings, including the Combined Otolaryngologic Spring Meetings in Chicago, and the American Academy of Otolaryngology annual meeting in Toronto, among others.
Dr. French is an active member in the Triologic Society, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, and the American Medical Association. Dr. French, a native of Atlanta, is happy to have returned home to Georgia where he resides in Alpharetta.
Along with the other surgeons at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Institute, Dr. French believes in using state-of-the-art surgical techniques, combined with a multidisciplinary approach to achieve superior outcomes in diseases of the head and neck.
