The Study of Otolaryngology

Otolaryngology is the branch of medicine and surgery that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders in the head and neck. It is the oldest medical practice in the United States and nearly 50% of all office visits pertain to medical issues dealing with the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).
