Ear, Nose and Throat
Ear, nose and throat (ENT) issues affect millions of people in the United States each year. The ear, nose and throat doctors at Northern Nevada Health System are ready to diagnose and treat all of your ENT needs.
Diagnosing and treating ENT issues require specialists who understand a large area of your body. Rather than focusing on just one discipline, ear, nose and throat doctors, commonly referred to as ENT physicians, treat patients both medically and surgically, meaning that they do not need to refer patients to other physicians and are able to offer the appropriate treatment necessary for the issue themselves.
Not only does this mean you can get diagnosed and treated much more quickly than other areas of medicine, but it means you usually see the same doctor or doctors throughout the process.
ENT problems can span from obstructive sleep apnea to mild to severe hearing loss to any number of other issues. Below are some of the conditions that ENT physicians at Northern Nevada Health System treat.
