Who is an ear, nose and throat specialist?
Otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty. Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and conditions of the ear, nose, throat, and head and neck structures. They are often referred to as otolaryngologists.
His skills include diagnosing and treating diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity and upper pharynx (mouth and larynx), as well as the areas of the face and neck. Otolaryngologists diagnose, treat and manage disorders specific to their medical specialty as well as many primary care problems in both children and adults.
What do ear, nose and throat specialists treat?
Ears. Hearing loss affects one in ten people. The unique field of otolaryngologists is the treatment of ear diseases. They are trained in the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, balance disorders, neuropathic pain, and disorders of the facial and cranial nerves. Otolaryngologists treat congenital (present from birth) disorders of the outer and inner ear.
Nose. About 35 million people develop chronic sinusitis each year, making it one of the most common health problems in the world. Caring for the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses is an essential skill for otolaryngologists. The management of the nasal area includes allergies and the sense of smell as well. Nose breathing and the appearance of the nose are specialties of otolaryngologists.
Throat. The work of the larynx includes life functions such as communication (speaking and singing) and eating. The specialty of otolaryngologists is the management of diseases of the larynx, respiratory tract, upper gastrointestinal tract or esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders.
Head and Neck This area of the body contains important nerves that control vision, smell, hearing, and the face. In the head and neck area, ENT doctors are trained to treat infectious diseases such as benign and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial trauma and facial deformities. We perform plastic and reconstructive surgery for such diseases.
What makes otolaryngologists most suitable for treating disorders of the ear, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck?
These specialists differ from many doctors in that they are trained in both medicine and surgery. Otorhinolaryngologists do not need to refer their patients to other doctors when ENT or head/neck surgery is required and can therefore provide complete complete care to each patient.
