When your toddler is experiencing multiple ear infections, your
sinuses are driving you crazy, or a family member's tonsils need to
come out, you'll be relieved to know that otolaryngology, otherwise
known as ear, nose and throat (ENT) services, is available at Texas
Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle. Services can be provided for
adults and children six months and older.
Otolaryngology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the
diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose, throat, and head and neck
disorders. According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, ENT
specialists differ from many physicians in that they are trained in
both medicine and surgery. Otolaryngologists do not need to refer
patients to other physicians when ear, nose, throat, or head/neck
surgery is needed and, therefore, can offer appropriate care for
each individual patient.
The following otolaryngology surgeries are available:
- Ear tube surgery
- Sinus surgeries, including endoscopic surgery for nasal and
sinus problems, which eliminates the need for an external
incision and offers greater precision.
