ENTs deal with anything that has to do with the head, ears, and neck in children and adults.
What do Otolaryngologists Treat?
Ear: Otolaryngologists are qualified to diagnose and treat hearing loss, ear infections, balance issues, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, and problems with the facial and cranial nerves using both medical and surgical methods. They also treat inner and outer ear congenital (born) diseases.
Nose: One of the main specialties of otolaryngologists is the treatment of the nasal cavities and sinuses. Allergies, sinusitis, odor disorders, polyps, and nasal blockage brought on by a deviated septum are all conditions that otolaryngologists diagnose, manage, and treat. They can do rhinoplasty surgery to improve the nose’s look.
Throat: Otolaryngologists are specialists in treating abnormalities of the voice and swallowing as well as diseases of the larynx (voice box) and upper aero-digestive tract or oesophagus.
Head and Neck: Otolaryngologists are qualified to handle infections, benign and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial injuries, and facial deformities in the head and neck region. They carry out both reconstructive surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery.
