Edward Barns, M.D., FACS, is a board-certified ear, nose and throat specialist, also called an otolaryngologist, at Lake Regional ENT & Audiology. Dr. Barns specializes in endoscopic sinus surgery; allergy conditions; sleep apnea; and head and neck surgeries. He also cares for pediatric patients, treating a full range of diseases and disorders, including chronic ear infections requiring tubes. He is the only provider in the mid-Missouri region who uses state-of-the-art Thermal Fusion to remove tonsils. This approach results in less pain and a much faster recovery — typically half that of a traditional tonsillectomy.

Before joining Lake Regional in 2015, Dr. Barns cared for patients for more than 20 years in Oklahoma.

In addition to being certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Barns is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.
