Ear, Nose and Throat Treatments
Our ENT specialists can effectively diagnose and treat disorders listed here.
Nasal allergy is a condition, often inherited, in which the immune system reacts to something in the environment. Allergies can also cause symptoms such as chronic sinus problems, postnasal drip, head congestion, frequent colds, recurring ear infections, hearing loss, dizziness, chronic cough and asthma.
Your ears, nose, and throat are all part of your upper respiratory system. They share anatomy and have similar mucus membrane linings, which means they get similar infections. An infection or another problem affecting one of them may also affect the others. Infections may cause ear pressure pain, sore throat, or constant problems with sinuses or phlegm in the throat.
Sinonasal disorders are disorders of the sinus or nose. They can include nasal obstruction, nasal discharge, nose bleed, smell disorders, nasal tone in voice, headache and facial pain, itching and sneezing and nasal deformity.
Laryngeal disorders are disorders of the larynx or vocal cords. There is no single symptom associated with a specific disorder of the larynx. For example, hoarseness, limitations in pitch and loudness, shortness of breath or increased vocal effort may be a sign of any number of disorders of the larynx. Laryngeal disorders can include benign and malignant tumors, contact ulcers, laryngitis, vocal cord paralysis, vocal cord polyps and nodules among others.
The thyroid gland is located in the middle of the lower neck, below the larynx (voice box). The most common thyroid problems are an overactive gland, called hyperthyroidism, an underactive gland, called hypothyroidism, or an enlarged thyroid gland often called goiter. An ENT specialist can effectively diagnose and treat these disorders.
The esophagus is the tube that carries food, liquids and saliva from your mouth to the stomach. The most common problem with the esophagus is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia) is also a common esophageal disorder.
