  • General ear, nose and throat surgery
  • Facial trauma surgery in Joplin, Missouri

  • Skin cancer
  • Treatment of thyroid and salivary gland tumors
  • Head and neck reconstructive surgery
  • Reconstructive facial plastic surgery

  • Allergy treatment offered by Dr. Box

Additionally, the center uses the latest equipment and instrumentation and serves as a training ground for future ear, nose and throat doctors in association with the Freeman Graduate Medical Education program and McIntire Medical Education Center.
