Caring Throughout Your Life
The ear nose and throat not only contain three of our senses but they also coordinate our balance and how we place ourselves in our environment. Otolaryngology is the study of ear, nose, and throat conditions and is commonly referred to as ENT.
ENT is a diverse specialty, encompassing a whole range of surgical approaches, from microsurgery to reconstructive surgery, endoscopic surgery to open surgery. ENT specialists are skilled operators when it comes to patient care. Whether it’s a new born baby having trouble breathing or an adult suffering hearing loss, there are no limits to the age of patients we care for.
Essentially, it is the specialty of communication, involving hearing, olfaction, taste, and of course, speech and language. ENT surgeons are involved in communication disorders and so must themselves be good communicators.
