ENT treatments

Whenever possible, our doctors use non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures to treat ENT problems. Medication, speech-language therapy and hearing aids are examples of non-surgical treatments. Additionally, image-guided surgery can be helpful for sinus repair. This type of procedure is less invasive and allows for better accuracy and fewer complications.

When surgery is required, we provide patients with an experienced medical team.
