Ear, Nose & Throat (Otolaryngology)

Ear, Nose & Throat

The Ear, Nose & Throat specialists (otolaryngologists or ENTs) at Olathe Health provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose, throat, head and neck disorders. Many of these disorders can affect hearing, speech and balance.

ENTs have extensive training in head and neck surgery and in identifying, treating and preventing disorders in the head and neck. A few common conditions that otolaryngologists treat include sinusitis, head and neck tumors and sleep apnea. Children and adults also see an ENT specialist to have their tonsils removed, and for management of chronic ear or sinus infections.

Our board-certified specialists also provide surgical treatment for head or neck disorders and cancers; and reconstructive plastic surgery for ears, nose, head and neck. Primary care providers may refer patients to an ENT specialist for specific medical conditions related to the head and neck.
