Otolaryngology refers to the medical specialty of caring for the structures of the head and neck. For this reason, doctors who care for conditions impacting these parts of your body are often referred to as "ears, nose and throat (ENT) specialists." At our hospitals, our ENT doctors offer surgical and nonsurgical care to help treat your ENT conditions, including allergies, sinus infections, ear aches and even related cancers.
