Philosophy of Care

I believe in family focused care, including parents in the decision making process for their children's medical needs. As a mom myself, I can know how scary it can be to see your child go through surgery. Some of the most complex decisions in our field, including treatment of hearing loss, are not just a unilateral decision, but what works best for the family.

Clinical Interests

Aditi Bhuskute is a fellowship trained pediatric otolaryngologist and practices in the full range of pediatric ear, nose and throat disorders. She has special interests in hearing loss, cochlear implantation, chronic ear disease, and aerodigestive disorders. She is interested in quality improvement and resident education, and strongly supports multidisciplinary care for children.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Bhuskute's research interests include quality improvement and patient safety projects, treatment and diagnosis of hearing loss, and outcomes of cochlear implantation.
