An otolaryngologist, or ENT, is a healthcare specialist who treats conditions affecting your ears, nose and throat.


An ear, nose, and throat doctor (ENT) specializes in everything having to do with those parts of the body. They even perform operations. They're also called otolaryngologists.

Some historians think ear doctors are the oldest medical specialties in the U.S. It started in the 1800s when doctors realized that a person's ears, nose, and throat had delicately connected systems that required special knowledge.

A nose doctor, throat doctor, ENT, and otolaryngologist are different names for the same type of specialist. These terms may be used interchangeably because they all mean the same thing.

An ENT diagnoses and treats infections and diseases of your ears, nose and throat. But they also treat a wide range of other conditions affecting your head and neck region.

Ear infections, including those in your outer, middle or inner ear.

Tinnitus, or ringing in your ears.

Dizziness, a feeling of unbalance which often results from inner ear disorders.

Vertigo. Different from dizziness, vertigo is when you have a sensation that your surroundings are spinning.

Sinusitis, which is inflammation or infection of your sinuses (air passages around your nose and forehead that drain mucus).

Allergies, which can result from pollen, pet dander or other environmental irritants.

Rhinitis, or inflammation of the mucus membranes that line your nose.
