Head & Neck Problems

Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is a condition where irritating stomach acid juices may leak out of the stomach and into the esophagus and throat. This causes irritations and muscle spasms in the throat due to the “Mucosal Acid Burn.” Over 50% of patients with ear, nose and throat symptoms from stomach acid have no indigestion. Learn more.

Adenoids & Tonsils

The adenoids and tonsils are mostly composed of lymphoid tissue, which is found throughout the gastrointestinal tract and on the base of the tongue. Tonsils and/or adenoids may be removed for a variety of reasons, including chronic ear infections, chronic or recurring sinus infections, and sleep apnea. Learn more.

Deviated Septum

A deviated septum is when the thin tissue in between your nose separating your two nostrils is not positioned optimally in the center of your nose. Some people are born with deviated septum while other people develop one after sustaining an injury or trauma to the nose. Learn more.

Head & Neck Cancers

Head & neck cancers include cancer of the nose and sinuses, cancer of the mouth and throat, cancer of the larynx, and parotid and submandibular gland tumors. Learn more.

Laryngopharyngeal Reflux / LPR / Gerd Treatment

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), commonly known as acid reflux, is a chronic condition associated with frequent heartburn. GERD occurs when acidic content from the stomach regurgitates, or refluxes, into the esophagus, causing inflammation and damage to the lining of the esophagus. Some patients with GERD may also experience laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), which occurs as acid from the stomach rises to the esophagus and enters the back of the throat. Symptoms of GERD and LPR can often be treated through lifestyle changes and medication. Surgery may be required for more severe cases. Learn more.

Parotid Surgery

The parotid glands lie in front of and below the ear. Parotid surgery, or Parotidectomy, is done for tumors of the parotid gland and occasionally for recurrent infections of the gland. For benign and low grade malignant tumors, surgery is usually curative without any need for additional therapy. For other malignant tumors, surgery is usually followed by radiation therapy.

Thyroid Surgery

Thyroid surgery is used for patients who have a variety of thyroid conditions, including both cancerous and benign (non-cancerous) thyroid nodules, large thyroid glands (goiters), and overactive thyroid glands. There are several thyroid operations that a surgeon may perform, including biopsy or lumpectomy, lobectomy, subtotal thyroidectomy, near-total thyroidectomy, or total thyroidectomy. Learn more.
