  • About

    Physician Bio

    Otolaryngologist Timothy Ortlip, MD, joined
    Washington Township Medical Foundation in January, 2019, and is a highly regarded ear, nose and throat specialist.
    Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he attended the University
    of Delaware, where he obtained a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.
    He returned to Philadelphia to receive his medical degree from Thomas
    Jefferson University, Sidney Kimmel Medical College. During this time,
    he realized his potential for treating patients both medically and surgically
    in the field of Otorhinolaryngology.

    His experience as a physician-researcher is deep. Dr. Ortlip spent five
    years at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he completed
    an intensive surgical training specializing in head and neck surgery.
    While there, he discovered his passion for all forms of facial reconstructive
    surgery. He fostered this passion through several research endeavors focused
    on techniques and outcomes of oncologic facial reconstruction. Dr. Ortlip
    also spent an extra six months investigating the longitudinal potential
    for mesenchymal stem cells harvested from tonsil tissue. His research
    and excellence in the field of facial trauma led him to be invited to
    London, England as a guest speaker to over 300 European delegates at the
    Imperial College Trauma Conference in 2014.

    Upon completion of his residency at the University of Maryland School of
    Medicine in 2017, he joined the faculty at Thomas Jefferson University
    Hospital in the Department of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,
    completing a fellowship in 2018. He is currently board certified in Otolaryngology
    and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Along with his expertise
    in treating ear, nose and throat disorders, Dr. Ortlip has a proficiency
    in rhinoplasty, Moh’s reconstruction, facial nerve disorders, ear
    reconstruction, botox, laser treatment, augmentation and other techniques
    for facial enhancement and rejuvenation.

    In addition to all types of ENT issues and treatments, Dr. Ortlip also
    has an interest in difficult noses, including reconstruction, as well
    as sinus surgery. He is equally at home with adult and pediatric cases,
    and has authored or co-authored research that has been published in many
    peer-reviewed journals, such as JAMA and the Journal of Clinical &
    Medical Sciences. Active in volunteering his specialty to help those in
    need, Dr. Ortlip has participated in international humanitarian missions
    to provide ENT care for both adults and pediatrics.

    Away from work, Dr. Ortlip and his wife are happy to be living in Northern
    California, where they like to frequent new and diverse restaurants. Dr.
    Ortlip is a top golfer, having played competitively in high school, and
    also enjoys photography, videography, snowboarding, hiking and biking.

    “I am excited to offer my highly skilled services to the patients
    of Washington Township Medical Foundation,” said Dr. Ortlip, who
    also has experience at both Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center
    and Kaiser Permanente Modesto Medical Center. “This is a very vibrant
    and dynamic community, and I’m very happy to be part of it.”
