Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Care for You and Your Family

Your ears, nose and throat provide important functions in your everyday life, so it's not surprising that when something goes wrong with them, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life.

Ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists (also called otolaryngologists) provide the care and treatment that you need to prevent or eliminate infections and to help manage and treat other conditions like sinus headaches, recurrent ear infections or hearing loss. We'll help you find relief.

Common ENT Treatments

There are many conditions that might affect your ear, nose or throat and there are many treatments, including medicines, surgeries and the use of medical devices. We’ll work with you to determine the best treatment option.

Some of the more common treatments include:

Ear Tubes 

When someone has recurrent or chronic ear infections, ear tubes (pressure equalization tubes) are used to relieve problems caused by infections and the fluid buildup that ear infections bring. They are most often used to treat chronic ear infections in children. Small tubes inserted into the ear drum that eventually fall out on their own. The tube prevents fluids from building up behind the eardrum.

Tonsil removal (tonsillectomy)

We might recommend tonsil removal to treat recurrent or chronic tonsillitis, snoring, sleep apnea and other rare tonsil conditions, including cancer. We’ll talk to you about whether or not a tonsillectomy is your best treatment option.

Sinus Surgery

We offer a variety of surgical options to treat your ear, nose and throat problems.

  • Nose and sinus surgery
  • Tonsillectomy
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Ear tubes
  • Sleep apnea surgery for children and adults
