Ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors treat a wide range of conditions that affect the head and neck. Our field is offically called "otolaryngology - head and neck surgery."
The anatomy of the head and neck is complex. The structures in the head and neck serve many functions. Some of the smallest, most delicate structures in the body are in the head and neck. Diseases may affect multiple areas of the head and neck (example: hearing loss from ear disease may caused by nasal/sinus disease). As ENT specialists, we are able to use our expertise to better understand our patient's problems and provide the most effective treatments.
We provide a mix of surgical and non-surgical treatments.
We see patients of all ages, from newborns to end-of-life.
Here is a list of problems that we frequently address for our patients:
- Cancer involving the head and neck
- Sleep apnea
- Ear surgery (tympanoplasty, ear tubes, mastoid surgery)-
- Hearing evaluation and hearing surgery
- Ear-related dizziness and balance problems
