While both infections affect the ear, the treatment for these conditions is different, which makes identification of the type of ear infection important.
Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT)
If you display problems that affect your ears, nose, throat, or related area, contact one of our TPMG Otolaryngologists. Our physicians provide comprehensive, compassionate care for adult and pediatric ENT disorders and audiology services.
Otolaryngologists are uniquely trained in the medical and surgical treatment of hearing loss, ear infections, balance disorders, tinnitus, nerve pain, and facial and cranial nerve disorders. They also handle congenital auditory disorders.
Sinusitis is a common health complain in the U.S. Otolaryngologists diagnose, manage, and treat allergies, sinusitis, smell disorders, polyps, or problems due to a deviated septum.
These specialists are experts at diagnosing issues with the larynx or voice box, and the esophagus, including voice and swallowing difficulties.
Head and Neck
Our high sensory functions are all concentrated in the face. Otolaryngologists are trained to treat infections, both benign and malignant (cancerous) tumors, facial trauma, and deformities. They occasionally perform facial plastic and reconstructive surgery on the face or ear.
