Ear, nose and throat symptoms affect us all. As many as 36 million American adults report some degree of hearing loss, 37 million people are afflicted with sinusitis each year and 69 million Americans have experienced some form of vestibular (balance) dysfunction.
Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management of patients with diseases of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. I am commonly referred to as an ENT physician. I treat all conditions and disorders of the head and neck, including: hearing loss, dizziness, tonsillitis, sinusitis, nasal congestion, hoarseness, oral cavity lesions, sleep disturbances, and head and neck tumors.
If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms from your ear, nose or throat, I invite you to attend the free community seminar on Thursday, October 2, 2014. The seminar will be held in the Pebble Creek Auditorium in Portneuf Medical Center. Doors open at 6pm and the presentation begins at 6:30. There will be a question and answer session following the presentation. Registration is preferred. To register, please call 208-239-1048.
The seminar will feature discussion of balloon sinuplasty, a minimally invasive procedure that opens the sinus passages to relieve pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis. In addition, I will discuss the causes of hearing loss and treatment options. Finally I will discuss common causes of dizziness and the use of videonystagmography.
