Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)

Otolaryngology, commonly known as ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat), is the medico-surgical speciality which treats diseases of the nose, of the throat and of the ears, as well as cancers of the head and neck. It thus treats paediatric to geriatric patients suffering from functional, infectious and cancerous diseases.

ENT doctors also provide diagnosis and treatment for diseases of the mouth and throat, be they infectious (stomatitis, throat infection, peritonsillar abcess…), mechanical (large tonsils causing sleep apnea in children and encouraging snoring in adults…), or tumoural (cancers of the tongue, of the soft palate…)
