We are very pleased to welcome Mark Vecchiotti, MD to Boston Medical Center and the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. His role will be to join Dr. Jessica Levi in providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for pediatric patients with head and neck, otologic, facial plastic and reconstructive concerns.  His particular interests include pediatric hearing loss, chronic ear disease, and cochlear implantation, cleft lip and palate reconstruction, pediatric congenital and acquired head and neck masses, congenital vascular tumors, voice and airway disorders including both open and endoscopic airway reconstruction, pediatric sinus disease, and advanced surgery for sleep apnea.

Dr. Vecchiotti received his medical degree from Weill Medical College of Cornell University.  He completed his Otolaryngology residency at University Hospitals of Cleveland at Case Western Reserve University and his Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital.  He was Chief of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Tufts Children's Hospital for 14 years, holding numerous leadership positions in the hospital, prior to joining the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Boston Medical Center.  While at Tufts, he started many of the subspecialty programs that gained the program national recognition, such as the Pediatric Aerodigestive Team, the Pediatric Cochlear Implant Team, the Pediatric Vascular Anomalies Team, and, most notably, helped create New England's only ACPA certified cleft and craniofacial team run by Pediatric Otolaryngologists. He recently completed his subcertification in the newly created Complex Pediatric Otolaryngology pathway through the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

At BMC, Dr. Vecchiotti plans to continue his multidisciplinary care of complex Pediatric Otolaryngology disorders, working with the outstanding pediatric care providers at this institution.  He will also continue his work with resident and medical student education, and continue his current research projects on speech outcomes after cleft palate repair, and artificial intelligence in diagnosing middle ear disease.
