Otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty in the United
States. This broad discipline of medicine encompasses treatment of
diseases of the ears, nose and throat (ENT), to include many
problems of the head and neck. For example, infections, tumors and
inflammatory conditions involving the face, ears, nose, sinuses,
oral cavity, speaking and swallowing passages, and soft tissues of
the neck are among the conditions addressed.
Within Rockwood Clinic, the specialty of otolaryngology is
represented by three generalists with wide interests, particularly
in the treatment of skin cancer and conditions of the nose and
sinuses. Otolarynogolists diagnose, treat and manage
specialty-specific disorders as well as many primary care health
conditions in both children and adults. The more common conditions
are treated medically and surgically by Rockwood Clinic
Conditions requiring subspecialty expertise are evaluated here,
followed by coordination for subspecialty treatment by colleagues
in the community or tertiary medical centers. After such
subspecialty intervention, ongoing care such as surveillance for
cancer recurrence is conducted here.
