Otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat surgery, ENT)

Otorhinolaryngologists (also known as otolaryngologists or ear, nose, and throat or ENT Surgeons) are surgical specialists who diagnose, evaluate and manage a wide range of diseases of the head and neck, including the ear, nose, and throat regions.

This page provides useful information on the nature of the work, the common procedures/interventions, sub-specialties, and other roles that may interest you.

ENT surgeons treat a very wide range of conditions.

These include:

  • ear conditions
  • nose conditions
  • throat conditions
  • head and neck conditions
  • facial cosmetic surgery

Ear conditions

  • otosclerosis  (a condition of the middle ear that causes hearing loss) and other problems with hearing and deafness
  • otitis media with effusion – a common condition of childhood (also known as glue ear) in which the middle ear becomes blocked with fluid
  • age-related hearing loss
  • tinnitus(ringing in the ears) and eustachian tube dysfunction
  • dizziness and vertigo
  • ear infections
  • perforated eardrum and cholesteatoma
  • protruding ears

Nose conditions


  • sinus infection and rhino-sinusitis, including in children
  • nasal injuries
  • nasal polyps
  • tumours of the nose
  • nasal obstruction
  • disorders of the sense of smell

Throat conditions

  • adenoid problems – surgical removal of these small glands in the throat at the back of the nose is sometimes needed, and is usually performed in childhood
  • tonsillitis, sometimes requiring surgical removal of the tonsils, usually in childhood
  • hoarseness and laryngitis
  • swallowing problems
  • upper airway breathing problems
  • snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (when breathing stops during sleep)

Head and neck conditions

  • cancer affecting the mouth, oral cavity, throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx), salivary glands, skull base, or the nose and sinuses

  • facial skin lesions including skin cancer

Common procedures

ENT surgeons use many different surgical procedures 

  • insertion of grommets for glue ear – this involves a very small incision in the ear drum and is typically carried out on children. The grommets help to ventilate the middle ear and resolve middle ear effusions
  • tonsillectomy (removal of tonsils) or adenoidectomy (removal of adenoids), most often in children
  • septoplasty – correction of nasal septum to prevent obstruction and enable clear breathing
  • micro laryngoscopy – a short metal tube (laryngoscope) is inserted into the larynx (voice box). This is used for examination and can also be used to perform a biopsyor surgery
  • endoscopic sinus surgery – a tiny telescope is inserted into the nasal passages to diagnose and treat difficult sinus conditions. Technically refined instruments are then used to restore proper function
  • tympanomastoid surgery to reconstruct and remove epithelial inclusions (cholesteatoma) within the middle ear
  • tracheostomy
