What is an Otolaryngologist – Head and Neck Surgeon?

OtolaryngologistAn Otolaryngologist – Head and Neck Surgeon is a Doctor of Medicine who specializes in disorders of the head and neck, particularly those disorders related to the ears, nose and throat. The word “oto-rhino-laryngology” comes from the Greek words – “oto” for ear, “rhino” for nose and “laryn” for throat.

Over the years, otolaryngology has expanded its area of expertise from the ears, nose and throat to a “regional” specialty of the head and neck.  This includes conditions involving the entire neck regions such as neck masses, the thyroid and parathyroid glands and submandibular glands, to name a few.
