Dr. Statham also sees adults with laryngeal and airway disorders.
A native Kentuckian, Dr. Statham is an avid UK basketball fan. Dr. Statham is the mother of three children, and she feels strongly that being their mother helps her be a better pediatric otolaryngologist on a daily basis. She enjoys camping, hiking, and travel.
