ENT is a medical abbreviation for Ears, Nose and Throat. A doctor who specialised in Treating ENT disorders may be referred to simply as an "ENT," however, the proper name for this type of doctor is an otolaryngologist.
ENT Doctors are physicians Trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.
The Ears, Nose and Throat are important parts of your body that are used on a daily basis. The ears are sensory organs that are not only related to hearing, but also function to provide you with a sense of balance.
The nose is also a sensory organ that not only provides you with sense of smell, but also partially provides for your sense of taste. The nose also plays an important function in humidifying air we breathe and works to prevent germs from entering the body.
The throat provides the route for both air to reach the lungs, as well as the route for food and water to enter your digestive tract.
Dysfunction of the ears, nose or throat can dramatically affect your quality of life and in some cases may constitute a medical emergency. If you have chronic ear, nose, or throat problems, it is advisable to not only see a primary care physician, but to also include an ENT Doctor in the management of your disorder.
