David Rouse, MD, is a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Medicine and completed residency with the University of Kansas Medical Center. He is board-certified in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
After more than a decade in private practice, Dr. Rouse joined our academic medical center to bring the most innovative surgical expertise to our community-based practice model. His interdisciplinary approach has resulted in strong outcomes for thyroid and parathyroid surgeries, Mohs reconstruction, facial fracture repair, head and neck cancer, sinus disease and all other aspects of the otolaryngology scope of practice. Dr. Rouse’s expertise will expand general otolaryngology services to include care at the Corporate Medical Plaza location in Overland Park, Kansas.
“I look forward to providing my patients with options beyond the private practice setting," Dr. Rouse said. “From surgical sleep apnea techniques such as Inspire therapy to subspecialty collaboration, nowhere else in the region will you be able to see a community-based provider with this interdisciplinary care model."
A native of Kansas City, Dr. Rouse takes pride in caring for entire families. A founding member of the Unifed FC soccer club, a 501c3 organization working with at-risk youth, he is actively involved in our community. He and his wife of 22 years have three children.
