What is an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat Doctor)?

An ENT doctor (ear, nose, and throat doctor) is a specialist in certain body areas. They are also known as otolaryngologists.

Reasons to See an ENT

Following are the reasons to consult your ENT; Tonsillitis flare-ups Tonsillitis affects both children and adults. If you have recurring sore throats or tonsillitis, it may be time to have your tonsils removed and consume some ice cream. However, if you have difficulty breathing, swallowing saliva, severe pain, or a high temperature, you should see an ENT to get a diagnosis and learn about treatment options. Chronic sinusitis Sinusitis is a frequent disorder in which the cavities around nasal passages (sinuses) become inflamed and swollen for at least 12 weeks, despite therapeutic attempts. If you have chronic sinusitis, your primary care physician will send you to an ear, nose, and throat specialist (ENT doctor). Our ENT doctor will determine your sinusitis treatment plan. Ear infections that reoccur They are among the most prevalent reasons parents bring their children to the doctor. While there are other forms of ear infections, the most frequent is otitis media, which refers to inflammation and infection in the middle ear (just behind the eardrum). Constant MMI Hospital’s best ent specialist in Karachi for discomfort or ear infections in adults can indicate a throat tumor growing. Hearing impairment This could be a normal part of aging, or recurring ear infections could cause it. However, unexpected hearing loss could result from a more severe condition. Our top ent specialist in Karachi can assist in detecting reasons for sudden hearing loss, which may include infections, circulatory inner ear problems such as Ménière's disease, and other neurological issues. Our board-certified audiologists can perform hearing tests to assist in determining the problem. Long-term hoarseness We've all had hoarseness due to a common cold or bronchitis. However, if it lasts six weeks or longer, it may indicate another medical concern, such as benign vocal cord lesions or laryngeal cancer. Our ENT specialist can quickly and painlessly check your vocal cords and determine whether additional testing is required. Neck swelling (especially in adults) An ENT should be consulted if a bump in the neck lasts longer than two weeks. Cancers that develop in the head or neck can travel to the lymph nodes in the neck before spreading to other parts of the body. A lump can be the first sign of mouth, throat, thyroid, or certain types of blood cancer.

What are the conditions that ENTs treat?

MMI Hospital has the best and most knowledgeable ENT specialists in Karachi. They do not confine their treatment to any specific head and neck area. Therefore they treat a wide range of conditions. Ear (otology/neurotology)—Hearing and balance are essential in how we go about our daily lives. Ear infections, hearing loss, dizziness, ringing in the ears (called tinnitus), ear, face, or neck discomfort, and other problems are treated by ENT doctors. Nose (rhinology)—Our noses help keep potentially hazardous dirt, allergies, and other agents out of our lungs. In addition to allergies, ENT doctors treat deviated septum, rhinitis, sinusitis, sinus headaches and migraines, nasal blockage and surgery, skull-base tumors, including those inside the cranial cavity, and other conditions. Throat (laryngology)—Disorders affecting our ability to correctly talk and swallow can significantly influence our lives and careers. Sore throat, hoarseness, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), infections, throat tumors, airway and vocal cord abnormalities, and other conditions are all treated by ENT specialists. Thyroid/Head and Neck—Some of our body's most essential organs are located in the head and neck, making them more vulnerable to tumors and cancer. ENT experts treat benign neck masses, thyroid problems such as benign and malignant tumors, Grave's disease, enlarged thyroid glands, parathyroid illness, and more, in addition to head and neck cancers. Sleep—The ability to breathe and sleep effectively during the night influences how we experience life and execute our jobs. Sleep-disordered breathing, nasal and airway obstruction, snoring and sleep apnea, and ENT specialists treat other conditions. Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—Facial trauma and the resultant change in appearance caused by an accident, injury, congenital disability, or side effect of a medical condition can be unpleasant. Cleft palates, drooping eyelids, hair loss, ear deformities, facial paralysis, trauma reconstruction, head and neck cancer reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery of the face are all treated by ENT experts who specialize in facial plastic surgery. Pediatrics—Children and their developing bodies and senses frequently require special attention. ENT doctors address congenital abnormalities of the head and neck, developmental delays, ear infections, tonsil and adenoid infections, airway issues, asthma and allergy, and other conditions.
