Otolaryngologists, or ENTs (Ear, Nose, and Throat), are doctors who deal with issues of the head, neck, and throat. They treat a wide variety of issues in children and adults. Whether it’s sleep apnea, tonsils, allergies, or something more concerning, the otolaryngologist is the specialist to deal with it. In fact, it’s estimated that around half of patients that go to see their primary care doctor have some kind of ENT issue.
Some doctors sub-specialize in the areas of Neurotology and Otology, which is dedicated to treating hearing loss, ear infections, and tumors involving the ear and skull.
Additionally, Otolaryngologists are all trained in facial plastic surgery. A number of our Proliance ENT surgeons are double board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery along with Otolaryngology. These double board certified surgeons provide a full array of facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries along with ENT surgery.
