Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialists

If you experience difficulty with sinusitis or other health issues in the head or neck, an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctor can diagnose the condition and develop a treatment plan for you. This includes hearing problems like tinnitus (ear ringing), severe hearing loss, thyroid disease, parathyroid disease, chronic sinusitis, and voice or speech problems. Also called otolaryngologists, ENT physicians have extensive training and experience with medical treatment and surgical management, allowing them to be your guide before and throughout surgery.

Pediatric ENT services

Our ENT doctors offer a wide range of pediatric ENT services. Conditions treated include sleep apnea, ear infections, sinus problems, snoring, head and neck tumors, hearing loss, speech delay, and voice disorders. Surgeries to treat these conditions may include tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, ear tube placement, sinus surgery, septoplasty, tongue tie release, or excision of tumors of the head and neck, including thyroidectomy. ARC ENT doctors do surgical procedures close to home, including Dell Children's Medical Center and Strictly Pediatric Surgery Center, along with other major hospitals in the Central Texas area.

Reasons to visit an ENT physician

Snoring and sleep apnea are some conditions that warrant a visit with an ENT doctor. These conditions affect your energy and productivity in daily life since they prevent you from getting deep, restorative sleep. Other ear, nose, and throat conditions that impact sleep include sinus problems or throat discomfort. You can also seek care for dizziness, voice care, and thyroid issues with an ENT specialist.
