ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat - Head & Neck Surgery)

Otolaryngologists medically and surgically treat diseases of the ears, nose, and throat. They also diagnose and treat hearing problems. Surgery of the head and neck, including plastic and reconstructive surgery, is also performed by these providers. Computer-assisted, image-guided surgical technology is utilized in transnasal surgery for nasal sinuses, skull-based disorders, and pituitary disorders. They now offer surgical and non-surgical management for snoring and sleep-related disorders.
