Head & Neck

Many surgical advances are being made in this area. Procedures such as tonsillectomy and facial plastic surgery are becoming less invasive, and new procedures are being developed to treat serious problems such as cleft palate, sleep apnea, and deafness.

Congestion, allergic rhinitis, a deviated septum, and mouth sores are just a few of the varied health problems that occur in this region of the body. Information about ways you can relieve symptoms at home and when you should see a physician can be found in this section.

Facial Plastic Surgery

As the only medical doctors who are specifically trained to surgically correct and enhance the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) offers information on the different surgical and medical components of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Throat & Voice

Throat complaints can be a mere nuisance or a major ordeal. Tonsillitis, voice disorders, and even hoarseness all interfere with our ability to communicate. Many of these conditions can be improved or corrected with the care of an ENT physician or head and neck surgeon.
