Otolaryngology Q & A

What is otolaryngology?

Otolaryngology is the oldest specialty in medicine. We are sometimes called ENT physicians because we focus on the medical and surgical conditions related to the ear, nose, and throat.

At Lawrence Otolaryngology Associates, we pride ourselves on treating patients, not just disorders. We prefer non-invasive, nonsurgical treatments whenever possible. Our providers value your input and work with you to restore your health and happiness.

How can otolaryngologists help with impacted earwax?

Normally, earwax is a sign of a healthy, functioning ear. But an accumulation of wax in your ear canal can lead to itching, discharge, pain and hearing loss. Sometimes the symptoms are so severe that careful, professional cleaning is the only way to correct it.

If cleaning is necessary, our specialist will use a microscope to see the structures of the eardrum and ear canal. Then we use delicate instruments or a small vacuum to clean out the wax safely.    

If you suffer from any of the above symptoms come to see us at Lawrence Otolaryngology Associates so that we can get your ears back on the right track with a gentle, professional cleaning.

How do otolaryngologists help nosebleeds?

It’s easy to dismiss a recurring bloody nose, but we can help you avoid the stress, embarrassment, and inconvenience of sudden onset nose bleeding. Chronic nosebleeds can be a result of many factors, including:

  • Dryness of the nose
  • Infections
  • High blood pressure
  • Trauma
  • Tumors

Our physicians here at Lawrence Otolaryngology Associates examine your nose to pinpoint the cause of your nosebleeds so you can best prevent them. Often we can numb the inside of your nose to allow us to seal the blood vessel.

What other conditions do otolaryngologists treat?

At Lawrence Otolaryngology Associates, we treat a myriad of conditions related to your ears, nose, and throat. From tonsillitis to dizziness and sinus problems to thyroid disorders, our experienced physicians will work to provide the best and most personalized care possible.

If you suffer from any condition related to your ears, nose or throat, call to request an appointment with us.
