Dr. Caten's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Caten "Dr. Caten completed his residency in otolaryngology at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University. His medical education was marked by admission to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Society in 2012 and by earning the top research award at the Medical College of Georgia for his work on the use 3D printing for mandibular reconstruction in 2016. Born in Cody, Wyoming and raised in Billings, Montana, Dr. Caten has mountain living in his blood. While medical school and residency took him to the south, he was eager to return to pine trees and snow-capped peaks to build his practice and raise his family. Carson City and Sierra Nevada Ear, Nose & Throat were the perfect match. Dr. Caten, his wife Scottie and their two young children now call Carson City home. When not caring for patients, he can be found fly fishing on the Carson River, mountain biking the Sierras and playing endlessly with his kids."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Caten "The specialty of ear, nose and throat has the benefit of stating exactly what it is we care for – diseases and disorders of the ear, nose and throat. Our practice also addresses audiology and hearing loss and we dispense and fit hearing aids through our affiliated practice, Sierra Nevada Hearing Aid Center.

Less well known, is that ENT specialists also perform surgery for head and neck cancer, as well as cosmetic facial surgeries, including rhinoplasty (nose), otoplasty (external ear), scar revision, eyelid rejuvenation, and laser resurfacing.

Surgical procedures are typically done in a hospital – often on an outpatient basis – but many procedures can be done in the comfort and convenience of our office clinics."
