Andrew Redmann

Assistant Professor


Dr. Redmann became a pediatric otolaryngologist because children are more fun than adults. His clinical interests include all aspects of pediatric otolaryngology, with a specific focus on aerodigestive disorders and complex airway reconstruction.  He lives with his wife and three children in the Twin Cities, and enjoys running, reading, cooking, the Green Bay Packers, and spending time with family.
