Otolaryngology (ENT)

Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) is a branch within medicine that focuses on diseases and dysfunctions of the ears, upper airways, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, lower airways and oesophagus. This also includes malformations, changes in shape, injuries and tumours as well as functional disorders of the sensory organs and voice, speech and language disorders.

In a wider context, ENT medicine covers the entire head and neck area. There are overlaps with many other areas of medicine (neurology, neurosurgery, maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, pulmonary medicine and dermatology). ENT medicine is therefore a very multifaceted field in medicine. The therapeutic strategies in ENT are also multifaceted. The vast majority of diseases are treated in the ENT specialist's practice.

When surgical therapies are performed, they are often delicate microsurgical procedures on the nose, paranasal sinuses, eardrum/middle ear and larynx (sometimes also at the base of the skull). Plastic (shape-changing) and aesthetic procedures are also performed in ENT medicine. Because of the close relationships with nerves, vessels and sensory organs, the interventions are very carefully indicated and planned.

The special feature of ENT medicine is that all age groups are treated, i.e. not only adults, but also adolescents, small children (e.g. for hearing tests, pharyngeal and palatal tonsils) and infants (e.g. newborn hearing tests in the first days of life)."
