Commonly referred to as ENTs, otolaryngologists specialize in treating conditions of the ears, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck.
Otolaryngologists handle the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus) and nerve pain. Surgeons at the Surgical Center can insert bilateral myringotomy tubes.
Audiology services are provided by a licensed, certified doctor of audiology and include:
Otolaryngology focuses on the nerves that control the face, sight, smell and hearing, including facial and cranial nerve disorders.
Otolaryngologists specialize in treating disorders related to speech and swallowing, as well as diseases of the larynx (voice box) and the upper aero-digestive tract or esophagus. They can also treat reflux conditions. Additionally, otolaryngologists at the Surgical Center can perform advanced tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy procedures.
Management of the nasal cavity and sinuses includes both medical and surgical treatment of sinusitis and nasal septal deformities. ENTs commonly treat problems with nasal obstruction, as well as chronic sinus problems that can make it difficult to breathe or cause head pain. We also provide allergy drops, a treatment alternative to allergy shots.
Surgeons can perform procedures using Fusion Compact™ and endoscopic sinus surgeries, as well as nasal fracture repair.
