The following is a partial list of the quality medial and surgical treatments
we provide for care of the ears, nose, throat, head and neck.
Allergy symptoms, including nasal congestion, sneezing, itching, watery eyes and sore throat, can affect Eustachian tube function and asthma. We are proud to offer immunotherapy (desensitization with allergy shots), as it offers the only lasting relief for allergies. Other treatments may include allergen avoidance and over-the-counter and prescription medications.
Young children (and sometimes adults) can get persistent fluid in the middle ear, or recurrent ear infections. In children, the can lead to a hearing loss and speech delay. Ear infections can usually be treated medically, but occasionally ventilating tubes are needed. Some people also have problems with “swimmer’s ear,” which is a chronic external ear infection.
We look for lumps nodules, nodes or fullness. These cancers can make their presence known through a lump in the neck, voice changes, difficulty swallowing, persistent earaches and other symptoms. Early detection and treatment can often lead to a cure.
Mainly caused by aging or noise exposure, hearing loss can also arise from impacted earwax, trauma, middle ear fluid or fixation of the bones in the middle ear. We use the latest therapies and treatments to restore as much of your hearing as possible.
Otolaryngology or ENT (ear, nose, and throat) is the branch of medicine and surgery that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the head and neck. We provide quality medical and surgical treatment of the ears, nose, throat, head and neck for patients of all ages, including children.
Heavy, loud snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which can lead to daytime sleepiness, decreased concentration, impotence, hypertension and heart enlargement. Sleep apnea can be life threatening. Treatment for heavy snoring and apnea can include CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), weight loss and surgery.
The vast majority of these fairly common nodules are non-cancerous. They should all be evaluated, however, typically with a physical examination, fine needle biopsy and ultrasound. We are experts at removal and we monitor vocal cords during surgery.
