Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)
Otolaryngologists, also referred to as ENT doctors or ENTs, practice a wide range of skills, including diagnosing and managing diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face, and sleep disorders/apnea. These experts treat people of all ages from pediatric patients to adults. Hearing tests for newborns is an especially important procedure, providing a vital opportunity to identify and treat hearing problems.
At Ministry ENT departments, patients receive medical and surgical treatment of diseases, infections, injuries and disorders of the outer and inner ear, including hearing loss, dizziness and tinnitus or ringing in the ear, along with complete allergy testing and immunotherapy.
For the nose, otolaryngologists treat chronic sinusitis, breathing problems, allergies and conditions affecting sense of smell.
In caring for throat-related conditions, ENT doctors manage diseases of the larynx and esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders and acid reflux.
ENTs also specialize in the areas of the head and neck, treating infectious diseases, benign and cancerous tumors, facial trauma, and deformities of the face. Our patients also have access to both cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery among our ENT services.
