Ear, Nose & Throat Surgery

The ability to hear, speak, and breathe is essential to communicate and have a good quality of life. Yet, most people don’t stop to think about these actions very often because they usually come easily until a problem arises. When you have trouble with your ears, nose, or throat, it might be time to see a specialist called an otolaryngologist, more commonly called an “ENT,” which stands for “ear, nose, and throat” doctor. These physicians are highly knowledgeable about ear, nose, and throat disorders and diseases.

What Does an ENT Surgeon Do?

ENT surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating diseases and disorders of the head and neck, including the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, and throat. These physicians are surgeons who provide care to adult and pediatric patients. Common illnesses and conditions treated by ENT surgeons include tonsillitis, snoring, ear infections, sinusitis, deviated septum, swallowing problems and thyroid gland growths. ENT doctors are unique among other specialists because they perform both non-surgical and surgical treatments, so there is no need to refer you to another specialist should you require surgery.
