Diseases of the head and neck, including tonsillitis, middle ear infections, sinusitis and various tumors, often require surgical intervention after medical treatment has failed.
Many of the symptoms of those maladies are caused or aggravated by allergies. Greenwood Leflore's board-certified otolaryngologists (ENT), Dr. Michael Carter, Jr., and Dr. Rockne Brubaker have years of experience in both office-based treatment and surgery of the head and neck. Allergies and hearing difficulties are also evaluated in the clinic with the latest in technology.
An ENT (Ear Nose & Throat Surgeon or Otolaryngologist) is a surgeon who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the head and neck, including facial disorders, nasal and pharyngeal disease, sinus and allergy disease and problems with the ears and hearing loss.
