ENT-Otolaryngologist Charles Crigger, MD discusses problems that can occur with the ear, nose and throat on the WSAZ show Mom’s Everyday.
Issues which may warrant a visit to the ENT:
Ear. Ear disorders, such as hearing impairment, ear infections, disorders that affect balance, tinnitus and pain in your ears are all conditions that should be assessed and treated by an ENT.
Nose. An ENT’s expertise includes the nose, nasal cavities and sinuses and problems affecting smell, breathing and physical appearance.
Throat. Conditions that affect speech, singing, eating, swallowing and digestion should all be addressed by an ENT.
An ENT’s role extends to issues surrounding the neck and head that are ENT-related. These include diseases, tumors, trauma, and deformities of the head, neck, and face. An ENT can also perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to address issues in these areas.
