      Dr. Daniela Carvalho is a pediatric otolaryngologist with expertise in pediatric otology (ear surgery). She is the Director of the Hearing and Cochlear Implant Program at Rady Children's Hospital of San Diego (RCHSD) since 2003. She was the first surgeon in San Diego to do BAHA surgery in pediatric patients and also to do surgery for the Sophono implant. She is the Medical Director of Surgical Services at RCHSD, where more than 20,000 surgeries are performed annually.

      Dr. Carvalho earned her MD and performed her Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) School of Medical Sciences (FCM) in Brazil, and underwent her 2 year Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship training through UCSD/Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego. She completed a Masters of Medical Management at USC in 2018. Her current research includes the impact of bilinguism in pediatric cochlear implant patients and endoscopic otologic surgery.

      She is very active in several national and international otolaryngology societies, including the AAO-HNS (where she was a member of the Implantable Hearing Devices Committee), ASPO (where she was the chairman of the Long Range/Strategic Planning Committee), SENTAC (Secretary) and ABORL-CCP.

      In addition to English, she is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, and also speaks German and French. She has published extensively in pediatric otolaryngology and is frequently invited to speak at otolaryngology conferences both here and abroad.
