I believe in personalized and patient-centered care for pediatric patients.  Each child has their own medical issues and I will use my clinical and research expertise to offer individualized and unparalleled quality care in the least invasive way.  Under my care you will benefit from innovative and cutting edge technologies.  I will treat both the child and family with respect and appreciate the opportunity to be involved in your health decision.

My clinical interests include microtia/atresia, chronic ear disease (cholesteatoma), sensorineural and conductive hearing loss management (including BAHA procedure), sinus disease and congenital head & neck masses.

Dr. Yi-Chun Carol Liu has been recently board certified in Complex Pediatric Otolaryngology, a new board exam in which she was a part of the inaugural class along with 14 other Texas Children's Hospital ENT physicians.
