WHAT PROCEDURES DOES AN ENT PERFORM?

Otolaryngologists perform surgeries of the head and neck to treat sinus, breathing, hearing, swallowing, and sleeping issues. These include: 

  • Sinus disease

    • Balloon Sinuplasty -  An in-office procedure that improves sinus drainage while preserving surrounding anatomy. Patients who qualify benefit from little down-time and minimal pain.​

    • Endoscopic Sinus Surgery- We offer the latest advances in sinus surgery to improve the drainage pathways of your sinuses and treat your chronic sinus disease. 

  • Nasal obstruction

    • Rhinoplasty & Nasal Valve Reconstruction- Our expert surgeons remodel and contour bone and cartilage of the nose to improve nasal breathing and achieve optimal cosmetic results. 

    • Septoplasty- A crooked nasal septum can causes severe nasal obstruction and sleep disturbances. Septoplasty straightens and remodels the nasal septum to improve nasal breathing. 

    • Inferior Turbinate Reduction- Enlarged turbinates are a common cause of nasal obstruction. Reduction of the turbinates significantly improves sleep and nasal breathing. 

    • VivAer Nasal Remodeling- The VivAer system uses uses low-temperature, radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel the tissues of the nose to improve nasal breathing. It's an in-office procedure with minimal discomfort, allowing patients to return to normal activity almost immediately. 

  • Sleep Apnea and Snoring

    • Sleep Apnea Surgery and Snoreplasty- There are multiple potential causes of sleep apnea and snoring. The experts at SCENT Houston will evaluate for the cause and provide expert advice on the best way to surgically correct your sleep disturbances. ​

    • Inspire Sleep Surgery- Inspire is an alternative to CPAP that works inside your body while you sleep. It’s a small device placed during a same-day, outpatient procedure. 

  • Head & Neck Surgery

    • Thyroid Surgery- Thyroid surgery, or thyroidectomy, involves removal of the thyroid gland, which is located at the base of the neck and responsible for creating a hormone that controls your metabolism. The thyroid can become overactive, underactive, enlarged, or develop cancer, all of which require treatment. 

    • Parathyroid Surgery- The four parathyroid glands sit next to the thyroid. When they become overactive, surgical removal can become necessary.

    • Tonsillectomy- Chronic tonsillitis is painful and frustrating. Enlarged tonsils can also cause bad breath, poor sleep, snoring or tonsil stones. Removal is a quick, outpatient surgery that permanently relieves this problem.

    • Head & Neck Surgery- The first step in cancer treatment is accurate evaluation and diagnosis. The trusted experts at SCENT Houston will help you every step of the way. 

  • Hearing & Ear Surgery​​

    • Tympanic Membrane Reconstruction – A perforation in the ear drum can cause pain, drainage, and hearing loss. Our  expert surgeons are trained in the most advanced techniques in tympanic membrane repair. 

    • Mastoidectomy – Chronic ear disease and cholesteatomas, or small skin cysts that can become infected, may require surgery to remove and clean the bone behind the ear.

    • Ossicular Chain Reconstruction – Chronic ear disease or otosclerosis can destroy or fuse the bones of the middle ear. The expert surgeons at SCENT Houston are able to reconstruct the bones of hearing and achieve optimum hearing results. 

    • Bone-anchored Hearing Implants- These implants are a type of surgically-placed hearing aid that bypass the bones of hearing.
