What is an ENT Doctor?

An ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor, also known as an otolaryngologist, is a medical doctor who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the ear, nose, and throat. This type of doctor has completed specialised training in otolaryngology and is qualified to provide medical care for people with conditions such as ear infections, sinusitis, and throat cancer.

In addition to diagnosing and treating these conditions, an ENT doctor may also provide preventative care and advice to help their patients maintain good ear, nose, and throat health.

Some of the specific tasks that an ENT doctor may perform include:

  • Performing physical examinations and ordering tests, such as hearing tests and imaging studies, to diagnose ear, nose, and throat conditions
  • Developing and implementing treatment plans for patients with ear, nose, and throat conditions
  • Prescribing medication to manage symptoms and treat ear, nose, and throat conditions
  • Advising patients on lifestyle changes that can help improve their ear, nose, and throat health, such as avoiding exposure to irritants
  • Referring patients to other medical specialists or surgeons if necessary
  • Performing surgical procedures, such as tonsillectomy and ear tube insertion, to diagnose and treat ear, nose, and throat conditions.

Overall, the primary role of an ENT doctor is to provide expert care for patients with ear, nose, and throat conditions and to help them maintain good ear, nose, and throat health.

Common procedures performed by an ENT Doctor

ENT doctors (otolaryngologists) are trained to perform various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Some of the most common procedures performed by an ENT doctor include:

  • Hearing test: This is a test in which an ENT doctor uses specialised equipment to measure how well a person can hear sounds at different frequencies and volumes. A hearing test can diagnose conditions such as hearing loss and ear infections.
  • Nasal endoscopy: This is a procedure in which an ENT doctor uses a thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end (an endoscope) to examine the inside of the nose. Nasal endoscopy can diagnose conditions such as sinusitis and nasal polyps.
  • Tonsillectomy: This is a surgical procedure in which an ENT doctor removes the tonsils (two small glands at the back of the throat). A tonsillectomy is typically performed to treat chronic tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils).
  • Ear tube insertion: This is a surgical procedure in which an ENT doctor inserts tiny tubes (ear tubes) into the eardrum to allow air to flow into the middle ear. Ear tube insertion can treat conditions such as chronic ear infections and fluid buildup in the middle ear.
  • Laryngeal biopsy: This is a procedure in which an ENT doctor removes a small sample of tissue from the larynx (voice box) for examination under a microscope. A laryngeal biopsy can diagnose conditions such as laryngeal cancer and vocal cord nodules.

These are just a few examples of the many procedures that an ENT doctor may perform. Each patient's needs are different, and the specific procedures performed by an ENT doctor will depend on the individual circumstances of each patient.
