Otorhinolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)

Otorhinolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat), Bellaire, TXOtorhinolaryngology is a somewhat daunting term used to describe what is more commonly known as ear, nose and throat specialty. This is further simplified into the acronym, ENT. The term otorhinolaryngology comes from the Greek oto (ear), rhino (nose), laryngo (throat), and logy (to study). As well as covering diseases and issues with the ears, nose and throat, otorhinolaryngology diagnoses can even extend to areas concerning the head and neck.

Ear, nose and throat specialists are medical doctors who have completed at least five years of surgical residency training. This is comprised of one year in general surgical training and four years in otolaryngology - head and neck surgery. The surgeons who enjoy privileges at First Street Surgical Center are all required to be Board Certified.

Otorhynolaryngology encompasses these related areas because of the inherent connection that exists in human physiology between the ears, the nose and the throat. Various channels and canals connect the pathways between the ears, nose and throat, and often, symptoms that manifest in one organ might prove to have its origin in a related organ within those channels. For instance, conditions that affect the tonsils, which are located in the throat, frequently include the adenoids, which are located in the sinus, or nose region.

Otorhinolaryngologists may treat or remove tumors within these delicate areas, may treat chronic sinusitis, conditions involving dizziness, they may even extend their practice to rhinoplasty, or reconstructive or cosmetic (plastic) surgery for the nose.
