Salivary Glands

The head and neck region contains both major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular and sublingual) and minor salivary glands. Our office is well versed in treating a variety of conditions that can affect salivary glands including benign and cancerous growths, stones, chronic infections and cysts. Treatment at times can include surgery.

Tonsils and Adenoids

Several conditions involving the tonsils can prompt ENT referral including recurrent tonsillitis or strep throat infections, tonsil stones, and tonsil cancer. Additionally, enlarged tonsils and adenoids can lead to airway obstruction, malocclusion and snoring.

Ears

Persistent ear infections or recurrent fluid in the middle ear can necessitate tube placement in both children and adults. Tube placement involves inserting a tiny cylinder into the ear drum to vent and drain the middle ear and diminish the number of infections. Impacted ear wax is also another common condition that your ENT provider can help treat.

Pediatrics

Services at the Head and Neck Center are not limited to adults. We treat a variety of conditions in the pediatric population including chronic tonsillitis, enlarged tonsils and adenoids, recurrent ear infections, and enlarged lymph nodes and neck masses.

Snoring/Sleep Apnea

Although not all snoring is sleep apnea, snoring can be a tell-tale sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which is when the patient stops breathing for seconds at a time. If left untreated sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure and higher risk of heart attacks and strokes. We can help evaluate both snoring and sleep apnea and help determine an appropriate plan of care.
