Ear Nose & Throat Doctor Serving Albany, NY
Common ENT Disorders
ENT services include the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain and facial and cranial nerve disorders as well as congenital (birth) disorders of the outer and inner ear.
Care of the nasal cavity and sinuses is one of the primary skills of the otolaryngologist. Management of the nasal area includes allergies, the sense of smell and breathing through the nose.
The throat is a vital area to all communicating (speech and singing) and eating. Otolaryngologists have specific expertise in managing diseases of the larynx (voice box) and upper aerodigestive tract or esophagus, including voice and swallowing disorders.
This center of the body includes the important nerves that control sight smell, hearing and the face. Otolaryngologists are trained to treat infectious diseases, both benign and malignant (cancerous) and facial trauma.
Albany ENT & Allergy Services offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment of allergic disorders affecting the ears, nose, throat and skin as well as asthma, animal and food allergies and chemical sensitivities.
Otolaryngologists complete up to 15 years of college and post-graduate training.
To be certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, applicants complete college, usually four years of medical school, and at least five years of specialty training. Some then pursue a one– or two–year fellowship for more extensive training in one of the seven subspecialty areas.
