Common ENT Conditions
Nearly half of all patients who visit their primary care provider have some sort of ENT issue. If you think about it, almost everyone has had a stuffy nose, clogged ears, or sore throat. ENT specialists treat a diverse range of conditions and disorders —from simple to severe, for all persons, at all stages of life.
Patients seek help from an ENT physician when experiencing difficulties with:
- Hearing and balance
- Swallowing and speech
- Breathing and sleep issues
- Allergies and sinuses
- Head and neck pain
- Skin disorders
ENT Surgical Procedures
ENT specialists are not only medical doctors who can treat your sinus headache, your child’s swimmer’s ear, or your dad’s sleep apnea. They are also surgeons who can perform extremely delicate operations to restore hearing of the middle ear, open blocked airways, remove head, neck, and throat cancers, and rebuild these essential structures. This requires an additional five to eight years of intensive, post-graduate training beyond medical school.
The physicians in St. Cloud Surgical Center’s Ear, Nose and Throat program are trained and experienced in the latest advances in ENT surgical treatments. They are respected throughout Central Minnesota for their warm bedside manner, team approach, and surgical expertise.
