Head & Neck Surgery

Specializing in Conditions of the Ear, Nose and Throat

Our otolaryngologists, or head and neck physicians, are trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx, mouth, throat, and other areas in the mouth and face and related structures of the head and neck. They treat benign and malignant tumors, infectious diseases, deformities and facial trauma.

Ear surgery can help address hearing loss, infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus) and some cranial nerve disorders.

Surgery on the nose can be done for both medical and cosmetic reasons. Common medical conditions that can require surgery are cancer or breathing difficulties. Cosmetic surgery can also be used to reshape the nose.

Throat surgery usually is undertaken to remove growths or correct other problems. It includes procedures to the voice box (larynx) and upper part of the digestive system.
