About ENT

A specialty of the treatment of diseases of the ear, nose and throat is called Otorhinolaryngology. It appears at first sight odd to lump together the ear, the nose and the throat but conditions that affect any one of these often involves the other two. The ear, the nose and the throat can be thought of as one long interconnected pipe with a number of cul-de-sacs.

The techniques used to diagnose conditions of each of these sites is very similar. Although Practitioners of the speciality are often known as Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons the management can be with medicines rather than surgery.
