Otolaryngologist Kibwei A. McKinney, M.D., has established his practice with OU Physicians. He has also been named an assistant professor with the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. Otolaryngologists treat patients for conditions relating to the ear, nose and throat.

McKinney is board-certified in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. He has a clinical interest in seeing patients with diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses (including acute and chronic sinusitis) and allergy. He performs a variety of in-office and operative procedures aimed at alleviating sinusitis and nasal obstruction, including sinus surgery, balloon sinuplasty, septoplasty and turbinate reduction. In addition, he provides allergy testing and targeted subcutaneous immunotherapy for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. McKinney also has an interest in the treatment of tumors of the nose, paranasal sinuses and base of the skull.

McKinney completed a fellowship in rhinology, allergy and endoscopic skull base surgery at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, where he also completed his residency. He completed a fellowship in rhinology at the Georgia Nasal and Sinus Institute, Savannah. He earned his medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia.

McKinney sees patients in Oklahoma City at the OU Physicians building at 825 N.E. 10th St. and Stephenson Cancer Center, 800 N.E. 10th St. For appointments, call (405) 271-1368.

With more than 660 doctors, OU Physicians is the state’s largest physician group. The practice encompasses almost every adult and child specialty. Many OU Physicians have expertise in the management of complex conditions that is unavailable anywhere else in the state, region or sometimes even the nation. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Physicians see patients in their offices at the OU Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City and at clinics in Edmond, Midwest City and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to OU Medical Center. Many also care for their patients in other hospitals around the metro area. OU Physicians serve as faculty at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and train the region’s future physicians.
