It is also noted that facial plastic and reconstructive surgeries are also within the area of expertise of ENT.

ENT has a wide range of sub-specialties; each includes various treatments. ENT’s sub-specialties are as follows:

Otology: Otology focuses on treatment of infection, disease, and damage to ear.

Rhinology: The main focus of Rhinology is treatment of sinus and nasal disorders to improve breathing and nasal function.

Laryngology: Laryngology focuses on treatment of the infections of throat and larynx to facilitate speech.

Head and neck surgery: Head and neck surgery specializes in surgery on cysts, salivary, thyroid and parathyroid glands, and head and neck cancers.

Facial plastics: Facial plastics refers to cosmetic procedures including Rhinoplasty, and face lifts, and also reconstructive procedures such as resetting the jaw.

Pediatrics: This field of ENT specializes in problems requiring treatment at a very young age. These problems include airway problems, infections of adenoids or tonsils that require to be removed.

BELOW IS A DETAILED LIST OF ENT’S SUB-SPECIALTIES:

Ear Surgeries

Cochlear Implants

Cochlear implants are neuroprosthetic devices that are implanted into the ears by a surgical procedure to give the auditory perception to a person with a severe hearing loss. By providing an electric hearing, cochlear implants bypass the normal acoustic hearing process. It means that the sound sensation is the result of the sound that is converted to electric signals which directly stimulate the auditory nerve. Cochlear implantation is performed under general anesthesia with incisions being made in the back of the ears.

Chronic Otitis Media (COM)

Otitis media is a series of inflammatory diseases affecting the middle ear. Acute otitis media (AOM) and otitis media with effusion(OME) are the main types of otitis media. Chronic otitis media (COM) is a long-standing, persistently draining perforation of the eardrum (tympanic membrane), which usually begins with AOM. COM can be treated either by medications or surgical procedures.

Ear Tumors

Ear tumors are either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Sometimes noncancerous tumors develop in the ear canal and block it, which causes hearing loss or an accumulation of earwax. Cancerous tumors may develop on the external ear because of constant exposure to sunlight or chronic ear infections. If detected at early stages, they can be removed surgically by radiation therapy. Late-stage tumors, however, require a more complicated procedure to be treated.

 

Other Hearing Loss Treatments

Ossicular chain reconstruction, Stapedectomy, Bone Anchored Hearing Aids (BAHA), Middle Ear Implants

Head and Neck Surgeries

Oropharyngeal Cancer Surgery

Oropharyngeal Cancer is caused by the growth of malignant cells in the oral cavity or oropharynx.  To treat oropharyngeal cancer, different types of surgeries can be employed depending on the stage and the location of the cancer tissues. A surgery is usually the best option to treat and oropharyngeal cancer.

Laryngeal Surgery (Laryngectomyy)

Laryngeal surgery or laryngectomy is a major surgical procedure that is performed under general anesthesia to treat diseases, especially cancer, in the larynx or voice box. In this surgery, the larynx is completely or partially removed in order to prevent the cancerous cells to spread to other areas.

Thyroidectomy and Parathyroidectomy

The surgical removal of all or a part of the thyroid gland is called thyroidectomy. This invasive procedure is for patients suffering from thyroid cancer or some other diseases of the thyroid gland such as goiter or hyperthyroidism. In the same vein, parathyroidectomy refers to the surgical removal of the parathyroid glands that are right behind your thyroid gland.

Endoscopic Resection of Skull Base Tumors

The area of the brain behind the eyes and nose is called skull base. Tumors that grow in that area are difficult to treat because they are very close to nerves and blood vessels.  Gaining access to skull base tumors for treatment has become easier with new technologies and approaches. One of the approaches for removing skull base tumors is minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery, in which the tumor is approached through the nose, without incisions in the face or head.

Nose and Sinus Surgeries

Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat inflammatory or infectious sinus diseases such as nasal polyps, some cancers, chronic rhinosinusitis not responding to drugs, and decompression of eye sockets/optic nerve in Graves ophthalmopathy. in order to improve sinus ventilation, the surgeon uses nasal endoscopes in FESS to widen the nasal drainage pathways of the paranasal sinuses.

Adenotonsillectomy

An adenotonsillectomy is a surgery to remove both the tonsils and adenoids. Generally used to treat enlarged tonsils and adenoids in children, an adenotonsillectomy is performed under general anesthesia through the mouth, taking less than one hour. Doctors may recommend an adenotonsillectomy if a child has breathing problems, snoring, restlessness, or sleep apnea.

Rhinoplasty and Nasal Reconstruction

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure for reshaping, correcting, and improving the nose both for aesthetic or medical purposes. Rhinoplasty, however, is often used to refer to cosmetic nose surgeries, while common functional nasal surgeries are septoplasty and turbinate reduction surgery, which are aimed at straightening a deviated septum and overly enlarged turbinates, respectively.

Sleep Apnea Surgery

Sleep apnea is a type of sleep disorder in which a person’s breathing unintentionally stops and is interrupted during sleep. As a result of pauses and breaks in normal breathing, less oxygen is spread to the brain and throughout the body. Once the airway is opened and the signal for breathing is received, it triggers the person with this sleep disorder to snort, take a deep breath, or even wake up with a feeling of choking, smothering and gasping for air. Sleep apnea is also the main cause of snoring, which is sometimes very annoying for people who share a bed or room. The goal of a sleep apnea surgery is to widen the air passage in the throat or nose by altering some parts of these organs, depending on what is blocking the airway, in order to make it easier for the air to pass into the body during the sleep.

Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)

Endoscopic Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) is a surgical procedure to treat patients with lacrimal sac or nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO). NLDO, which is either congenital or acquired, leads to other conditions called epiphora (watery eye caused by excessive secretion of tears because of the blockage of the lacrimal passages or nasolacrimal duct) and dacryocystitis (infection of the tear sac).  The aim of the DCR is to restore the flow of tears into the nose from the lacrimal sac when a nasolacrimal duct dysfunction occurs.

Senior Patient Coordinator

Dear Angelo, We are very glad to see you asking for information about your medical condition. I’ve written a detailed reply for you and sent it to your email. But I’d like to give a summary of that information here as well. Our doctor examined your medical documents and came to the conclusion that your loss of hearing is not linked to your sinusitis. Your hearing loss is a condition called “Sudden sensorineural hearing loss” (SSHL) commonly known as sudden deafness, which usually affects one ear, just as in your case. So, you have two different conditions: Sinusitis and the… Read more »
