Otolaryngology or ENT (ear, nose, and throat) is the branch of medicine and surgery that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the head and neck.

The full name of the specialty is otorhinolaryngology; the full term otorhinolaryngology literally means “the study of ear and throat”.

Practitioners are called and professionally designated by the more accurate term otolaryngologists–head and neck surgeons, as specialists trained in otolaryngology are experts in surgical conditions of the head & neck. Some people refer to it simply as head and neck surgery.

If you have a problem, we are here to help.  Feel free to reach out for an expert in ENT problems!

    Some ENT surgeons have advanced fellowship training in Pediatric Otolaryngology or Facial Plastics or several other disciplines.
