  • Dr. Vilela came back to Houston following completion of his pediatric otolaryngology training at The Children's Hospitals of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Prior to fellowship training, Dr. Vilela graduated from medical school at the University of Texas-Houston and completed his otolaryngology residency at Tulane University School of Medicine and Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans.

    Dr. Vilela is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is a Fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is also a member of the Texas Medical Association and the Harris County Medical Society. He is interested in a wide variety of pediatric otolaryngology disciplines including ear infections, chronic ear disease and hearing loss, cochlear implantation, sinonasal problems, diseases of the airway including airway reconstruction, benign head and neck masses, and tonsil and adenoid surgery. He believes patient care is best approached by a team that includes your primary care physician, other subspecialists, if need be, and, most importantly, parents and/or caretakers.
