ENT stands for ear, nose and throat. ENT surgery is not only about recognizing disease and operating.

ENT surgeons spend a large proportion of their time managing a host of medical conditions that also make up ENT practice, like allergy. Nasal allergy occurs in approximately 20% of European populations. Ear infections are mostly treated medically, as are throat and sinus infections. Voice conditions also make up a substantial part of the ENT surgeon’s time-these require special equipment like flexible telescopes to visualize the voice box properly. Vocal conditions do not always need surgery and need the services of a competent speech and language pathologist (speech therapist) for vocal conditions which are mainly functional in nature.
