An Otolaryngologist specializes in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face. This page offers a closer look at diagnoses and treatment options for an array of ear, nose, and throat complications. We encourage you to utilize this page whenever you have a question about your ear, nose, and throat health.
Chronic sinusitis is one of the most common health complaints in America. A primary skill of an Otolaryngologist is the care of the nasal cavity and sinuses. Management of the nasal area includes nasal polyps, allergies, and sense of smell.
Communicating and eating both involve the use of the throat. Otolaryngologists specialize in managing diseases of the larynx (voice box) and the upper aero-digestive tract (esophagus), which include voice and swallowing disorders.
Your head and neck contain important nerves that control sight, smell, and hearing. An Otolaryngologist is trained to treat infectious diseases, both benign and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial trauma, and deformities of the face.
While children face many of the same health problems that adults do, the symptoms and treatment options will vary— methods traditionally used for adults may not be appropriate for children. This section identifies common pediatric ear, nose, throat, head, and neck ailments so that you can better understand your child’s health.
