Personal Statement

Dr. Cong Thu (CT) Nguyen is a Board Certified Ear, Nose and Throat - Head and Neck Surgeon who has extensive training and experience in the diseases of the ears, nose and throat. His special clinical interests include nose and sinus diseases, snoring disorders, allergy treatment, and image-guided endoscopic surgery.

Dr. Nguyen’s 10+ years of experience have allowed him to realize that a disease may require more medical intervention and investigation rather than an immediate need for surgery. If surgical treatment is necessary, Dr. Nguyen is trained in the latest advancements in ear, nose and throat diseases and disorders. He has practiced minimally invasive treatment of the sinuses, ear, thyroid, head and neck even before it became widely popular. Many treatments can be done in the office and without general anesthesia allowing patients to feel better sooner.
Dr. Nguyen received his medical degree from the University of Sherbrooke. Graduating at the top of his class, Dr. Nguyen pursued and was selected for one of the most competitive and coveted residency programs in medicine, Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. He completed his general surgery internship and otolaryngology head and neck residency at the University of Montreal where he served as chief resident. During his last year in residency, he met and he fell in love with a native Texan who convinced him to follow her to the Lone Star State. Dr. Nguyen says he might not have been born in Texas but he got here as soon as he could!
Dr. Nguyen is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
As an avid patient educator, Dr. Nguyen is a frequent community speaker. His topics have included, "Is it a cold or sinus infection?", "Why can't I smell or taste my food?", "Antibiotics: the good and the bad", "Natural remedies to treat your sinus symptoms."
As an expert in the field of ear, nose and throat, Dr. Nguyen is frequently featured in the press including Fox 26 News, Van TV Channel 55.2, 900 AM Health Talk show, and Top Docs Houston.
Dr. Nguyen has privileges at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, Memorial Hermann Memorial City, St. Joseph's Hospital, and Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.
He is fluent in French and is a tennis fanatic. You can often find Dr. Nguyen on the tennis court on the weekends.
