Otolaryngology / Otorhinolaryngology
Otolaryngology is a specialty of medicine which deals with ears, nose, and throat. It is also called otolaryngology-head and neck surgery because specialists are trained in both medicine and surgery. Doctors who specialize in this area are called otorhinolaryngologists, otolaryngologists, ENT doctors, ENT surgeons, or head and neck surgeons. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians. The most common reasons for patients to visit an otolaryngologist were problems with their ear, nose and throat. Otolaryngologists diagnose and manage diseases of the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, and throat, as well as structures of the neck and face. Mostly these problems can be diagnosed through physical analysis, meaning that otolaryngologists have a hands-on approach to patient.
