What is an Otolaryngologist?

Otolaryngologists are physicians that specialize in the treatment and management of diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat, (ENT) and related bodily structures. Otolaryngologists are commonly referred to as ENT (ear, nose, and throat) physicians and provide both medical and surgical care.

According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty in the US. Otolaryngological diseases and disorders can affect anyone, regardless of age or gender.
