Ear, Nose And Throat

Common Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) conditions include sleep apnea, sinus infections, and hearing issues.

Otolaryngologists (commonly referred to as ENT surgeons) deal with the diagnosis, evaluation and management of diseases of head and neck and principally the ears, nose and throat.

One of the key areas of concern for ENT surgeons are helping patients cope with or recover from diseases that impair the senses of hearing and balance. They will also be concerned with the functional aspects of breathing, eating and speech. ENT surgeons also deal with cancers in this region of the body. Many will undertake plastic and reconstructive work on the face.

There’s more information on the Royal College of Surgeons’ website.
