ENT/Otolaryngology

Diseases and disorders of the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck adversely impact millions of people of all ages. Otolaryngology (pronounced oh/toe/lair/in/goll/oh/jee) is the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Otolaryngologists are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.

At Sebasticook Valley Health, our ENT team treats patients with deviated septums, laryngitis (inflammation of larynx and vocal cords producing hoarseness), parotitis (inflammation of the parotid glands), pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx producing symptoms more or less similar to tonsillitis), snoring and sleep apnea, tonsillitis (inflammation of tonsils producing pain, odynophagia (painful swallowing), and much more.
