ENT, also known as otolaryngology, is the branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, throat, head and neck. ENT doctors, or otolaryngologists, are trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of ENT disorders and diseases.
Experts in Treating Ear, Nose & Throat Disorders
The ear, nose and throat specialists affiliated with Portsmouth Regional Hospital have extensive training and experience in treating a wide range of ENT conditions. We provide advanced, personalized care designed to alleviate discomfort and return you to health as quickly as possible.
ENT Conditions We Treat
You can rely on our ENT specialists to diagnose and treat disorders including:
- Ear – Hearing loss, ear infections, balance disorders and ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Nose – Allergies, smell disorders, polyps and nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum
- Throat – Diseases of the throat, larynx (voice box) and voice and swallowing disorders
- Head and neck – Infections and tumors, facial trauma and deformities of the face
If you experience ongoing sinus infections—recurring infections or chronic sinusitis that lasts for at least three months—we can provide long-term relief. Portsmouth was one of the first hospitals in the nation to offer minimally invasive sinus surgery, a highly effective technique that results in faster healing with less discomfort. With over 1,000 procedures, our ENT team is the most experienced in Northern New England and your best choice for sinus surgery.
The procedure, known as stereotactic-guided endoscopic sinus surgery, uses a long, thin tube with a camera on the tip to pinpoint the precise location for surgery. With this approach, approximately 80 percent of patients find their condition completely resolved, and the remaining patients able to reduce their use of medication significantly.
