ENT (“Ear, Nose, and Throat”) surgery is one of medical specialty practiced by ENT surgeons. Otolaryngologists (ENT surgeons) are doctors trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are referred to as ENT physicians.
ENT surgery is often suggested as a treatment for conditions that affect the ear, nose or throat when medication and other non-invasive treatments fail. ENT surgery will be suggested in a number of situations from treating tonsillitis in a child to treating cancer (surgical removal of the larynx) in an adult. ENT surgery is also done to correct deformities or injuries. Here are some of the most common ENT surgical procedures.
Typically, ear surgery is performed to correct defects causing hearing loss or impairment. Such procedures include removal of all or part of a bone in the middle ear called the stapes, reconstruction of the eardrum, and to implement a device which will stimulate nerve ends within the inner portion of the ear to help hearing. Surgery of the ear also includes insertion of ear tubes to drain fluid in persons with chronic ear infections.
Common surgeries of the throat include removal of tonsils (tonsillectomy) or adenoids (adenoidectomy). The tonsils and adenoids are masses of lymph tissue that play an active role in body defences to fight infection. The tonsils and adenoids can get infected, in which case surgical removal is usually indicated to relieve breathing problems and infection recurrence.
Surgery of the nose will include procedures that treat sinus diseases (sinus surgery). Advanced endoscopic surgery for sinus and nasal disorders can eliminate the need for an external incision.
Surgery of the neck region includes tracheotomy (a surgical procedure in which an opening is made in the trachea or window). Tracheotomy is indicated for a person who is unable to breathe and deliver enough air (oxygen) to the lungs. Additionally, ENT surgeons perform complicated surgical procedures for the treating of malignant head and neck cancers. ENT surgeons can also treat sleep-related disorders such as sleep apnea and excessive snoring.
Any surgery, whether big or small come with risks, so we usually are sceptical before taking up one. Apart from the doctor/surgeon, we should also know the hospital's success rate in that particular surgery before deciding on the hospital. Hospital’s pre and post-operative care are equally important for the success of any surgery.
