Otolaryngology studies the conditions pertaining to the ear, nose and throat (ENT). Surprisingly enough, otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty in America. Specially trained doctors who diagnose, treat, and manage conditions of the ear, nose and throat are known as otolaryngologists; however, they can often be referred to as ENT physicians or doctors.
An otolaryngologist treats any conditions or diseases of the ears, sinuses, voice box, mouth, throat, neck, or nose.

Ear Health

Our Highland, IN otolaryngologists specialize in ear disorders and are trained to handle everything from hearing loss and balance problems to infections and congenital disorders. With hearing loss affecting roughly 20 percent of Americans, an otolaryngologist is equipped to help improve a patient’s ability to hear.

Nose Health

Allergies affect over 20 percent of Americans and sinus-related disorders strike over 31 million Americans. An otolaryngologist is an expert on the health of your nasal cavities and sinuses and offers treatment and care of allergies, nasal polyps, sinus problems, obstructions and even rhinoplasty.

Throat Health

When you have conditions that affect your ability to speak or eat, you may be dealing with a disease of the throat, esophagus or larynx. An otolaryngologist can easily diagnose and create an effective treatment plan for those with swallowing disorders and other throat conditions.
Besides focusing on the ear, nose and throat, an otolaryngologist also specializes in the health of the head and neck. After all, these regions are responsible for seeing, hearing and smelling. Your otolaryngologist is also specially trained to treat infections, tumors, birth defects and trauma through either cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery.
Otolaryngologists are different from most other doctors, as they’ve received both medical and surgical training. For anyone who is experiencing ear, nose, throat, head or neck problems, see an otolaryngologist for the most specialized and appropriate treatment.
