Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. Our ear nose and throat doctors can diagnose and manage diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box) oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face. Otolaryngologists also diagnose, treat, and manage specialty-specific disorders and many advanced primary care problems in both children and adults.
At ENT and Allergy Associates, you are sure to find the right physician to help diagnose and treat your condition:
Hearing loss affects one in ten North Americans. The unique domain of otolaryngologists is the treatment of ear disorders. They are trained in both the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, earwax, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, earaches, and facial and cranial nerve disorders. An otolaryngologist also manages congenital (birth) disorders of the outer and inner ear.
About 40 million people develop chronic sinusitis and rhinosinusitis each year, making them some of the most common health complaints in America. Care of the nasal cavity, nosebleeds, and sinuses is one of the primary skills of otolaryngologists. Management of the nasal area includes allergies and sense of smell. Breathing through and the appearance of the nose are also part of otolaryngologists’ expertise. Postnasal drips can be treated under the care of an ENT doctor. Some headaches are related to sinus issues.
Communicating (speech and singing) and eating a meal all involve this vital area. Also specific to otolaryngologists is expertise in managing diseases of the larynx (voice box) and the upper aero-digestive tract or esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders.
The Head & Neck
This center of the body includes the important nerves that control sight, smell, hearing, and the face. In the head and neck area, otolaryngologists are trained to treat infectious diseases, both benign and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial trauma, thyroids/parathyroids, and deformities of the face. They perform both cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.
