Robert Pema patient philosophy:

I truly believe that God has a purpose for everyone in life, and my purpose is to practice the field of Otolaryngology.  I love my job and love coming to work every day.  I enjoy all aspects of my field, from simple problems such as ear wax to more complicated problems, such as diagnosing throat cancer.

As a physician, I enjoy working with all ages, particularly with children.  I also work with seizure disorder patients, implanting a device known as a vagal nerve stimulator.  I have vast experience in this area, and have implanted one of the highest number in the country.  I also have a special interest in sinus surgery, as well as surgery for obstructive sleep apnea.

Being a part of The Ohio State University allows me to treat my patients as comprehensively as possible.  If I feel I am not able to completely cure a patient of his or her problem, I can guide them to the physician in our department that can.

When not working, I enjoy running and participating in triathlons and spending time with my wife and four children.
