Robert W. Bastian, M.D.

Robert W. Bastian, M.D.
Dr. Bastian is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat physician) who has practiced Laryngology exclusively since 1987. He is an internationally-recognized authority in the treatment of voice, airway, and swallowing disorders, having been invited to teach in university and professional society contexts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Ireland, France, Belgium, and Turkey. He has been listed by Chicago magazine as one of "Chicago's Top Doctors," and by Castle-Connolly as one of "America's Top Doctors. He is also the recipient of the Honor Award for teaching contributions to the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
Known for his concern for patients, Dr. Bastian has developed and directed multidisciplinary teams to consider patient disorders from three perspectives: behavioral, medical, and surgical. In all of Dr. Bastian's own professional activities, whether consulting, operating, treating, researching, writing, presenting, or training, patients come first.
He was arguably the first in North America to consistently put forward the voice-restoring possibilities of vocal fold microsurgery in singers with otherwise irreversible disorders, at a time when this sort of surgery was widely perceived - even condemned - as unsafe to the voice in that population. To date, he has one of the premier North American experiences with this surgery, having operated on an estimated 600 singers with diverse problems, not to mention thousands of non-singers.
Beginning in 1983, through his many lectures, later through courses taught at the American Academy of Otolaryngology, and his hosting of numerous visitors to his practice, Dr. Bastian is also considered by many to be the North American leader and catalyst for the current return of office-based surgery (e.g. biopsy and injection) of the larynx and pharynx as a cost-effective, efficient, and safe alternative to surgery in the operating room under general anesthesia.
Widely known for his work with swallowng disorders, Dr. Bastian independently developed a comprehensive and often stand-alone method of swallowing evaluation called the videoendoscopic swallowing disorder (VESS).
For a particular swallowing disorder called cricopharyngeus dysfunction, Dr. Bastian has been in the vanguard in the Midwest of the trend to utilize through-the-mouth laser surgery rather than traditional surgery through a neck incision. The caseload he shares with Dr. Richardson is believed to be the largest series in the Chicago metro area.
Dr. Bastian's reputation is also based on his noteworthy experience in several additional areas:
Dr. Bastian was trained in medicine and surgery at Washington University Medical School in St. Louis, Missouri.
Prior to forming BVI, Dr. Bastian completed a highly successful twenty-year academic medical career first at Washington University, St. Louis, and then at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois. During his 16 years at Loyola he trained numerous residents and medical students as well as fellows and visiting physicians and speech pathologists from many countries.
Dr. Bastian's passionate interest in the voice flows directly from his own singing training and experience. He studied singing with James Wilson, Greenville College; Dale Moore, Southern Illinois University and Washington University; Edmund LeRoy of Conservatory and Schools for the Arts, St. Louis; and Edward Zambara, at the same institution. A subset of his patients are singers, from the worlds of both opera/classical and popular music.
