Otolaryngology deals with the medical and surgical treatment of ear, nose and throat diseases and head and neck diseases in all age groups. The “Otorhinolaryngology” department, known as Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT), is a health field specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders occurring in the head, neck, ear, nose and throat. In addition to basic diseases such as headache, chronic colds, sinusitis, sore throat, tinnitus, discharge, inflammation and snoring, mass detection in the head and neck region, thyroid and parathyroid diseases and tumors, salivary gland diseases and tumors, head and neck tumors (such as larynx, nasal, oral, sinus and skull base tumors), rhinoplasty and aesthetic interventions for the face, treatment of hearing loss and eardrum, and all kinds of procedures requiring surgical intervention fall within the field of otorhinolaryngology. In addition, special diseases such as tonsils and adenoids, which are usually seen in children and which fall within the scope of the ear, nose and throat unit, are also included in the scope of treatment. The nose is one of our most visible organs. Every race and person has a certain nose shape. Mostly due to trauma and sometimes structurally, there may be nasal deformities.
Rhinoplasty operations for nasal deformities and breathing problems are performed by ENT physicians today.
Ear diseases, one of the treatment areas of ENT, are shaped depending on various complaints. These complaints are generally listed as middle ear infections, tinnitus, temporary or permanent hearing loss, facial paralysis, ear nerve disorders and aesthetic disorders. In addition, the application of devices or prostheses needed for the treatment of hearing impairment is also performed by the ENT unit.
