Hearing loss affects one in ten people.
The unique domain of otolaryngologists is the treatment of ear disorders. They treat hearing loss, ear infections, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), and some cranial nerve disorders.
Otolaryngologists also manage congenital (birth) disorders of the outer and inner ear.
About 35 million people develop chronic sinusitis each year, making it one of the most common health complaints in the world.
Care of the nasal cavity and sinuses is one of the primary skills of otolaryngologists.
Problems in the nasal area include allergies, smell disorders, polyps, and nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum.
Communicating (speech and singing) and eating a meal all involve this vital area.
In the head and neck area, otolaryngologists treat infections, benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial trauma, and deformities of the face. They perform both cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.
