The physicians at our ENT services are skilled in a variety of procedures, therapies, and surgeries, utilizing the field’s most up-to-date technology and techniques to diagnose and treat a range of disorders. Our technology and procedures are used to diagnose and treat:
- Sinus problems, including sinusitis. Our providers have treated thousands of patients with sinus disorders. They are skilled in minimally invasive sinus surgeries (such as Balloon Sinuplasty) involving fewer incisions and less recovery time.
- Pediatric disorders. Our physicians diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders in children, most commonly tonsil and adenoid problems, ear infections, allergies and repeated respiratory disorders. Treatment for these problems may include the placement of pressure-equalizing (PE) tubes in the ears to prevent fluid build-up and reduce the number of ear infections. Some children may need surgery to remove tonsils or adenoids that are frequently infected. The surgery often can be performed on an outpatient basis and recovery is usually complete within a couple of weeks.
- Voice and swallowing disorders. Voice disorders include speech problems from voice abuse, cleft palate or other congenital problems, and overuse of voice. Swallowing disorders, often a result of stroke or other conditions, may be treated with medication, surgery or speech therapy. Auburn ENT Services offers expert treatment for these problems.
- Hearing problems. Audiometry is a test that measures how well one can hear. An Audiologist, a person trained to identify and help manage hearing problems, performs the test.
If you require a procedure or surgery, we will explain the procedure, answer your questions, and give you information about what to expect after the procedure.
