What is an Otolaryngologist? What exactly is an Otolaryngologist? Frequently called an ENT physician for their management and treatment of the ear, nose, and throat, these physicians are specialists in diseases and disorders of the head and neck. ENTs diagnose, treat, and manage issues related to the ears, nose, sinuses, voice box, mouth, throat, and other neck and facial structures. ENTs complete both medical and surgical treatment of a variety of ear disorders, including: hearing loss, ear infections, tinnitus, vestibular disorders, congenital disorders of the ear, and earrelated nerve disorders. Non-medical hearing and vestibular management is typically completed by audiologists. Nasal maladies related to sinuses, allergies, polyps, deviated septums, cosmetic issues, and other disorders related to the sense of smell may be treated by your ENT. Disorders of the throat, affecting speech, singing, breathing, and swallowing may be diagnosed and managed. Other related head and neck disorders may also fall within the scope of an ENT. Some ENTs may even perform cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeries. ENTs are intensely trained for 13-15 years of bachelors and postgraduate education, including college, medical school, and at minimum 5 years of speciality training. An examination by the American Board of Otolaryngology must also be successfully completed. After all of this training, ENTs are considered specialists, experts, in the fields of allergies, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeries, head and neck disorders, larygology (disorders of the throat), otology/neurotology (disorders of the ear and nerve pathways), pediatric disorders of the

ear, nose, throat, neck, and head; and rhinology (sinus and nose disorders). Contact an otolaryngologist in your neighborhood if you are having difficulty in any of these areas!
