Our expert doctors offer patients surgical and non-surgical ways to help with diseases of the head and neck. Otolaryngology includes surgery for the head and neck as well as non-surgical care that focuses on the ears, nose and throat. It’s known as ENT for short.

Hearing loss and balance

  • Ear problems can affect hearing and balance. Hearing loss and recurring ear infections can be a problem in daily life. The best way to figure out problems of the ear is to use specialized instrumentation, including microscopy.

    Due to the size of the ear, treating ear disease usually requires specialized training. While ear wax can be a recurring annoyance, the chronically draining ear can be the first sign of more serious problems.

    Our providers understand the complex structure of the ear and how it works. We can help figure out your ear problems using state-of-the-art technology. We also offer hearing services for all of your hearing aid needs.

    Surgical and non-surgical care depends on the severity and nature of your problem. Along with our audiology department, the patient will understand all the ways to improve hearing, while maintaining safe and healthy ears.

Pediatric ear, nose and throat

  • Our providers have broad knowledge in caring for the pediatric patient. A visit with the ENT department is not uncommon for children, as the tonsils and adenoids enlarge (get bigger).

    Sleep apnea, recurring tonsillitis and ear infections are common in the Pacific Northwest. Our providers can deliver unique medical and surgical solutions to help with these disorders.

    Nasal obstruction (blockage), hearing loss, neck lumps and bumps can be found early and a complete plan of care established. All our surgeons can do a high volume of pediatric ENT surgery, allowing for smooth and safe surgery, and scheduling with ease.

    Our outpatient surgery center is well-equipped and staffed to help pediatric patients and their families with a soothing space.

Thyroid, parathyroid, head and neck surgery

  • Head and neck surgeons are otolaryngologists who have special training in treating tumors of the head and neck. Several of our providers have specialized knowledge and advanced training to do thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

    Thyroid nodules are common in adults. Surgery may be needed for enlargement of nodules or suspicion of cancer.

    Open lymph node biopsy or lymph node dissection can be necessary for diagnosis and treatment of head and neck cancer. Our surgeons work with clinicians in radiation and medical oncology to give complete treatment for cancer.

    Salivary gland pathology, including parotid (part of salivary gland) and submandibular (beneath the jaw) gland stones and tumors, are best treated by a head and neck surgeon like ours.

    OR
  • Our providers can help with:

    • Neck mass
    • Tongue lesions
    • Tonsil masses
    • Mouth and throat tumors (growth)
    • Salivary gland disorders
    • Hyperparathyroidism (elevated calcium level)
    • Thyroid tumors, benign (not harmful) and cancerous growths
    • Goiters (when the thyroid gland is abnormally large)
    OR
  • The services we offer include:

    • Thyroidectomy (taking out the thyroid)

Voice and swallowing

  • We offer complete voice and vocal cord evaluation. Diseases of the larynx (voice box) include:

    • Laryngitis (when vocal cords are inflamed)
    • Vocal cord nodules (growth of abnormal tissue)
    • Vocal polyps (growth of abnormal tissue)
    • Vocal cord paralysis
    • Muscle tension voice disorders
    • Spasmodic dysphonia (a voice disorder)

    These problems can be challenging to learn the cause of and require the experienced ears and eyes of a laryngologist. A laryngologist diagnoses and treats illnesses, conditions and injuries of the larynx, often called the voice box. 

    A laryngologist can help with adult and pediatric voice issues. They work in coordination with speech pathology, as many problems don't require surgery, and can be managed with a change in vocal habits and hygiene.

    Stroboscopy can help find voice disorders. Stroboscopy allows the laryngologist to study vibration, movement and architecture of the vocal cords, along with the patient.

    The observer (including the patient) can view the subtleties in how vocal cords work which can make a tremendous difference in vocal pitch, range, effort and quality. All patients leave with a complete visual and pictorial understanding of how their larynx works.

    OR
  • Our providers can help you with:

    • Hoarseness
    • Voice loss
    • Swallowing problems
    • Globus (lump in throat)

  • Services offered:

    • Laryngoscopy (an exam to look at the larynx and throat)

    • Removing precancerous and cancerous lesions on the larynx
