Pictures Above: TEAM ENT...ISMS Team ENT was founded in 2011 by Shawn C. Ciecko, MD, an Otolaryngologist Head and Neck surgeon (ENT). The ISMS team continued to expand and included Otolaryngologists (ENT) Head & Neck surgeons as well as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons who are trained to treat both the Adult and Pediatric patient population. Today, ISMS Team ENT is staffed with a complete Adult and Pediatric Anesthesia team as well as a skilled recovery and critical care nursing staff.  Our ISMS ENT members form a diverse group of individuals who hail from the shores of New York to the reaches of Argentina. The team is committed to treating the ailments of the Ear, Nose and Throat as well as the Head and Neck. Our primary goal is to transcend political and religious differences and to focus our efforts on providing medical treatment to the less fortunate. We recognize that “routine” care for us is a distant dream for many and therefore stay committed to bringing them that opportunity.
