Frequently Asked Questions

ENT stands for Otolaryngology (Oto-ear, laryngo-throat), a medical specialty focused on diagnosing and treating disorders of the ear, nose, throat, head, and neck. ENT specialists, also known as otolaryngologists, are trained to manage conditions such as hearing loss, sinusitis, tonsillitis, allergies, voice disorders, and head and neck cancers.

You should consider seeing an ENT specialist if you experience symptoms related to ear, nose, throat, or head and neck issues. These symptoms may include chronic sinusitis, recurring ear infections, hearing loss, persistent sore throat, voice changes, nasal congestion, or any concerns regarding head and neck lumps or masses.

ENT specialists perform a wide range of procedures to diagnose and treat various conditions. Common procedures include tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (removal of tonsils and adenoids), myringotomy (ear tube placement), nasal septoplasty (correction of deviated septum), sinus surgery, vocal cord surgery, thyroidectomy (removal of thyroid gland), and head and neck cancer surgery.

ENT specialists diagnose hearing loss through methods, including audiometry (hearing tests), tympanometry (middle ear function tests), and imaging studies like CT scans or MRI. Treatment options vary based on the cause and severity of hearing loss and may include hearing aids, cochlear implants, medication, or surgery.

Chronic sinusitis can result from various factors, including allergies, nasal polyps, deviated septum, or recurrent infections. Treatment typically involves a combination of medical therapies such as antibiotics, nasal corticosteroids, saline irrigation, and allergy management. ENT specialists may recommend endoscopic sinus surgery to improve sinus drainage in severe cases or when conservative measures fail.

Yes, ENT specialists commonly diagnose and manage allergic conditions affecting the nose, sinuses, and throat. Treatment options may include allergen avoidance measures, antihistamines or nasal corticosteroids, allergy shots (immunotherapy), or sublingual immunotherapy (under-the-tongue allergy drops).

Snoring and sleep apnea can significantly impact sleep quality and overall health. If you experience loud or disruptive snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, witnessed pauses in breathing during sleep, or other symptoms suggestive of sleep apnea, it's essential to seek evaluation by an ENT specialist. They can conduct sleep studies (polysomnography) and recommend appropriate treatment options, which may include lifestyle modifications, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliances, or surgical interventions like uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) or other airway surgeries.
