Diseases involving our hearing, sinuses and the oral cavity are treated by ENT specialists. People with hearing loss can at times be helped by surgical intervention, thereby obviating the need for a hearing aid. Many people suffer needlessly from diseases of the sinuses. Our surgeons can offer minimally invasive approaches to treatment of the sinuses. Cancers of the throat and the larynx (voice box) require immediate attention by properly trained specialist such as our otolaryngologists.  The thyroid gland and the parathyroid glands play important roles in the management of the body's metabolism, calcium and bone health. Diseases of these two organs are treated by ENT specialists when surgical interventions are required.
