When you have a problem specific to your ears, nose, or throat, you may have to see a specialist. In this case, it’s an ENT doctor or otolaryngologist.
How can an ENT doctor help you?
An ENT doctor can help diagnose and treat conditions that involve the ears, nose, and throat. Some of the conditions an ENT doctor can help you with include:
When you think you’re having an allergic reaction, seeing an ENT specialist can help.
He/she can determine the cause of your allergies and prescribe the most appropriate treatment option for you.
Our sense of balance is controlled by the tiny structures found in the inner ear. So when you’re having problems with your balance, you may be referred to an ENT doctor to determine the cause of it.
ENTs work closely with audiologists to determine the cause of hearing loss and recommend the most suitable intervention.
Whether it’s an infection or impacted cerumen, an ENT doctor can help with these problems.
A sinus problem, especially a chronic one, can greatly affect your quality of life if it’s not treated.
An ENT specialist can help identify the severity of the condition and provide the most appropriate treatment option.
Diseases of the larynx
ENTs can diagnose and treat diseases involving the larynx, including cancers that involve the throat and mouth.
Speech and swallowing disorders
With speech and swallowing disorders, ENTs work closely with speech-language pathologists. Together, they help determine the cause of such issues and treat them.
ENTs can also do surgeries to correct issues or problems involving the ears, nose, and throat.
They can do tonsillectomies (removal of the tonsils), myringotomies (insertion of ear tubes), sinus surgeries, and nasal polypectomy (removal of nasal polyps).
