Otolaryngology/Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialists

Otolaryngology refers to the anatomy, function, and diseases related to the ear, nose, and throat. Because otolaryngology involves the ears, nose, and throat, these specialists are known as ear, nose, and throat doctors (ENTs).

Sinus surgery is minimally invasive and is often performed on an outpatient basis. Types of sinus surgery include:

  • Endoscopic Sinus Surgery: During endoscopic sinus surgery, the ENT physician examines the sinus openings for obstructive or unusual growths or tissues, which are then removed.
  • Image-Guided Surgery: This procedure combines computed tomography and endoscopy to improve the surgeon’s visualization of the target area. Imagery is very helpful during procedures that are intended to correct older sinus surgeries or for procedures addressing abnormal sinus anatomy.

Otolaryngology Procedures

Ear, nose, and throat physicians (otolaryngologists) focus on the ear, nose, throat, larynx, and the sinuses. ENT surgical procedures may be performed to treat:
