Expert Care for Ear, Nose, and Throat Conditions

Symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or plugged ears often mean you have a cold. But they can also indicate something more serious. The otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat, or ENT) providers at Benefis can diagnose the full range of conditions that affect these areas, and design a personalized treatment plan to return you to health.

We treat both adults and children with these conditions. Care for ear, nose, and throat conditions can include medication, surgery, or both.

Ear Conditions We Treat

Problems with your ears can be painful, and hearing loss can isolate you from family and friends. Our otolaryngologists and audiologists use the latest methods to treat ear conditions such as:

  • Congenital disorders of the outer and inner ear
  • Dizziness and motion sickness
  • Earaches and ear infections
  • Hearing loss
  • Perforated eardrum
  • Swimmer’s ear
  • Tinnitus

Nose Conditions We Treat

Problems with your nose and mouth can interfere with your sleep, your sense of smell, and with just taking a breath. We treat nose conditions such as:

  • Deviated septum
  • Injuries to the nose
  • Nasal polyps and tumors
  • Nosebleeds
  • Postnasal drip
  • Sinus infections
  • Sinusitis
  • Snoring and sleep apnea

Throat Conditions We Treat

Throat pain and other symptoms can be caused by a variety of conditions. Some of the throat conditions we treat include:

  • Cancer of the larynx (voice box)
  • Cysts, polyps, and nodules
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Sore throat
  • Tonsillitis
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Vocal cord paralysis, cysts, and polyps

We also provide testing for mononucleosis, which can cause a sore throat.

Head and Neck Conditions We Treat

Otolaryngologists at Benefis also care for people with some head and neck conditions, such as:

  • Bell’s palsy
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Injuries to the face
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Thyroid disorders

For adults and children with injuries, scarring, or abnormalities of the head and neck, our providers use the latest reconstructive and cosmetic surgical techniques to correct the problem and improve function and appearance.
