Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)
ENT is a surgical subspecialty within medicine that deals with the surgical and medical management of conditions of the head and neck. Doctors who specialize in this area are called otorhinolaryngologists, otolaryngologists, head and neck surgeons, or ENT surgeons or physicians.
Patients seek treatment for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, base of the skull, head and neck. These commonly include functional diseases that affect the senses and activities of eating, drinking, speaking, breathing, swallowing and hearing.
In addition, ENT surgery encompasses the surgical management and reconstruction of cancers and benign tumours of the head and neck as well as plastic surgery of the face.
