Otolaryngologists diagnose and treat diseases and problems of the ear, nose and throat, as well as related structures in the head, neck, and face. They are also known as ear, nose, and throat specialists (ENTs). They diagnose and treat problems such as allergies, ear infections, swimmer’s ear, dizziness, balance issues, and tinnitus (ringing or noises in the ear).

Hearing loss is a common problem in the U.S. and can adversely affect a patient’s quality of life by affecting personal interactions, educational opportunities, and work situations. Hearing loss can be gradual and might be caused by previous noise exposure, aging, disease, or certain medications. In recent years there have been many advances in the medical, mechanical, and surgical treatment of hearing loss. Hearing aids are now both digital and programmable. Thorough testing in a medical environment is key to finding both a cause and effective solution for hearing impairment.
