What is ENT?
The ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialty deals with much more than just these three main parts. There are many related structures found in the upper respiratory tract, head, and neck area that are seen by ENT doctors. For example, you would see an ENT specialist to get your tonsils removed or for concerns over a tongue-related issue. They even deal with some issues of functionality relating to the eyes and eyelids.
Common issues that patients might see an ENT specialist for include sinusitis or sleep apnea. The doctor can diagnose and suggest a means of treating these conditions. In severe cases, they may require endoscopic sinus surgery or sleep apnea surgery respectively.
ENT procedures that our specialists perform include:
o Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
o Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
o Nasal Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
o Nasal Endoscopy
o Sleep Apnea Surgery
Our highly-skilled ENT surgery department works with you to ensure you can make the most informed decisions about possible treatments. Certain procedures can be done with local anesthesia meaning you can leave the hospital the same day, others are in-patient and have a slightly longer recovery time.
Whatever your specific needs are, our team of health care professionals are dedicated to ensuring your speedy recovery and an improved quality of life after surgery.
