Also known as: Ear Nose Throat (ENT)

Treating a wide range of ailments, the otolaryngology specialists at Providence provide expert care for patients with ear, nose and throat conditions.

Otolaryngologists, or “ENTs” for short, see patients of all ages, from children with ear and throat infections to adult patients seeking treatment for sinus infections, hearing loss or cancers of the ear, nose and throat.

Many Ear, Nose and Throat physicians treat both children and adults, although some focus on only one of these populations. Some may also complete additional training to focus on specific areas or conditions, such as otologists (focus on the ears); facial plastic and reconstructive surgery; or head and neck surgery to focus on complex surgery of the jaw, mouth and neck.

Whether your child has recurring ear infections or you're an adult seeking treatment for chronic sinusitis, you can rest easy knowing the surgery will be performed in a setting well-known for providing compassionate, high-quality care.

Ear, Nose and Throat surgeons are sometimes called Otolaryngologists or Otorhinolaryngologists. They are trained to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions affecting the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth and throat, as well as structures of the head and neck.
