An ear, nose, and throat doctor, also known as an ENT or otorhinolaryngologist, specializes in diagnosing and treating problems concerning the head and neck area. Read below to see an outlining of a few of the conditions that your ENT doctor, Dr. John Ansley of the Carolina ENT Clinic in Orangeburg, SC, treat in bodily areas.
Within the ears are tiny, complicated structures that can cause problems with hearing and balance when they are infected or otherwise damaged. Your Orangeburg ENT can diagnose conditions like ear infections, hearing loss, or inflammation that causes dizziness or a feeling of imbalance and also make recommendations on how to resolve these issues.
Sinusitis is a very common nose-related problem seen at the Carolina ENT Clinic in Orangeburg. Seasonal and environmental allergies, deviation of the septum (the space between the nostrils), and obstruction in the nasal passageways all cause symptoms within the nose, most commonly congestion, pain, or drainage. All of these issues can be treated by Dr. Ansley.
A persistent feeling of hoarseness or being unable to project your voice usually warrants a visit to your Orangeburg ENT. Chronic laryngitis, caused by inflammation or nodules on the vocal cords, is one of the main throat conditions seen by our doctors. They also diagnose and manage cancer of the larynx (i.e. the windpipe) as well as other conditions that may require a tracheostomy (a surgical opening in the trachea that bypasses the throat).
Of course, our otorhinolaryngologists have a wide range of experience and training in many other diseases and conditions of the head and neck, including trauma reconstruction, thyroid problems, and oral cancer.
