3. What kinds of things do ENT doctors treat? | back to top

Ear, Nose, and Throat doctors, officially known as otolaryngologists, treat a wide variety of problems and provide comprehensive care for the family.

Ear-Hearing loss affects one in ten North Americans. We are uniquely qualified in the treatment of ear disorders. We are trained in both the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, and facial and cranial nerve disorders. We are trained for children as well as the adult population. Otolaryngologists also manage congenital (birth) disorders of the outer and inner ear.

Nose-About 35 million people develop chronic sinusitis each year, making it one of the most common health complaints in America. Care of the nasal cavity and sinuses is one of our primary skills. 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. ENTs were the first specialty to develop allergy shots for the treatment of nasal allergy.

Throat-Communicating (speech and singing) and eating a meal all involve this vital area. Also specific to our expertise is managing diseases of the larynx (voice box) and the upper aero-digestive tract or esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders.

Head and 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, and deformities of the face. They perform both cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.
