Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery
ENT surgery is surgery involving the ears, nose, and throat, including the neck. Doctors who specialize in this area are called otorhinolaryngologists, otolaryngologists, ENT doctors, ENT surgeons, or head and neck surgeons. Patients seek treatment from an otorhinolaryngologist for diseases of the ear, nose, or throat and for the management of cancers of the head and neck.
Ear surgery is usually performed to correct specific causes of hearing loss. Nose surgery can include different types of procedures necessary to treat sinus problems (sinus surgery). Throat surgery can include complicated procedures or more simple procedures such as surgical removal of the adenoids or tonsils. Head and neck surgery may be necessary to remove a tumor or reconstruct an area after disfigurement from trauma or injury.Sacred Heart Hospital offers a wide variety of ENT surgeries.
