ENT, also known as otolaryngology, is the branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the ear, nose, throat, head and neck. ENT doctors, or otolaryngologists, are trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of ENT disorders and diseases.

Sinus Infections

If you experience ongoing sinus infections—recurring infections or chronic sinusitis that lasts for at least three months—long-term relief is available. Parkland offers a minimally invasive, image-guided sinus surgery known as ENTrak that results in faster healing with less discomfort.

Through our sister facility, Portsmouth Regional Hospital, we offer a procedure, known as stereotactic-guided endoscopic sinus surgery. With this approach, approximately 80 percent of patients find their condition completely resolved, and the remaining patients able to reduce their use of medication significantly. To learn more about this sinus procedure, contact Portsmouth Regional Hospital.

Ask your doctor about the different options for minimally invasive sinus surgery and what is right for you.
