WHAT IS AN OTOLARYNGOLOGIST?
Otolaryngologists are also known as Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, but the specialty is
far more comprehensive than many people realize. Tonsillectomy and ear tubes
are most frequently associated with this specialty, as well as nasal and
sinus surgery. Head and neck cancer, and injuries of the face and neck are
also within the scope of the Otolaryngology. Surgery for correction of snoring, endoscopic sinus surgery and video endoscopic evaluation of voice and swallowing
abnormalities are also available.
Management of allergy
problems are integral to the specialty of Otolaryngology. Seasonal hay fever
and food allergy are diagnosed and treated with the latest techniques available.
Patients with asthma, skin rashes and gastrointestinal problems are frequently
evaluated and cared for in this office.
