What Do Otolaryngologists Treat?
- EARS: ENT physicians treat ear disorders. These specialists are trained in both the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, and facial and cranial nerve disorders.
- NOSE: ENT physicians care for the nasal cavity and sinuses. This includes allergies and a person's sense of smell, as well as the appearance of the nose and a person's ability to breathing through the nose.
- ENT physicians are experts in managing diseases of the larynx (voice box) and the upper aero-digestive tract or esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders.
