Specialized Knowledge, Specialized Care

The head and neck represent a synergy of orchestrated systems. In addition to the brain, the anatomy of the head and neck empowers the majority of the senses – sight, hearing, smell and taste; components of the body’s complex balance and navigation system; air and food intake; speech; and parts of the endocrine system. A complex network of nerves, bone, muscles and blood vessels support every piece of the whole.

Mass. Eye and Ear is staffed and equipped to solve problems in a comprehensive range of ENT subspecialties, including:

The ENT specialty does not cover the eyes, brain or teeth, but since so many parts of the head and neck whole are linked, the staff works closely with specialists in other areas – ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and dentists and oral surgeons from both Mass. Eye and Ear and Massachusetts General Hospital.

As with any medical specialty, there is significant crossover between the subspecialties – for example, ENT oncology and thyroid cancer treatment; otology and audiology; plastic surgery and emergency ENT – and many other examples. A major advantage Mass. Eye and Ear brings to ENT is that our specialists and subspecialists work in close proximity – collaborating, investigating, sharing knowledge and developing new techniques.
