In addition to treating routine ear, nose and throat disorders, Dr. Discolo also cares for children with airway problems, head and neck masses, sleep apnea, vascular anomalies and thyroid disease.
For the last 10 years, Dr. Discolo has also been involved in international surgical mission work, and he plans to contribute to IU School of Medicine’s global health initiatives, which includes AMPATH, a partnership with Moi University School of Medicine in Kenya.
In his spare time, Dr. Discolo enjoys cooking, exploring Indianapolis and spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
