Otolaryngology Services and Ear, Nose and Throat in Pembroke Pines, FL
Otolaryngology is the specialty science of the ear, nose and throat, or ENT. All aspects of ear, nose and throat function, disorders and disease, are the primary targets of otolaryngology. Dr. Hesse is an ENT specialist in Pembroke Pines, FL and provides quality care for those in need of assistance with hearing, sinus or ear issues, or throat conditions.
Services are Available for Hearing Issues
Many people live with various forms of hearing impairment. Sometimes this impairment is genetic or from an injury. Most hearing impairment conditions can be treated or in some cases prevented with treatment. Our offices in South Florida offer a wide array of services for the improvement of hearing and the prevention of hearing loss.
The Ear or Otology
Aside from hearing issues, the ear can be impacted by many other conditions, whether these be infection, obstruction, disease or chronic ringing in the ears. The ears also help us with our balance, and so balance disorders such as vertigo can be treated here. Other conditions include:
- Swimmer’s ear
- Ear wax
- Ear aches
- Ear infection
Nose and Sinuses
The nose and sinuses are hollow spaces within the skull that serve many purposes. When there are conditions such as congestion, blockages, infections, a deviated septum or disease, your life will be severely disrupted. Our Pembroke Pines ENT clinic offers services to treat the nose and sinuses to remove blockages, help with drainage and prevent the worsening of serious health problems by treating infections. We can also treat nasal pain and remove nasal polyps.
Those who suffer from allergies are suffering from the body’s oversensitive immunological response to things in their environment. This could be anything from animal dander to pollen. Allergies cause post-nasal drip, sneezing and congestion among other symptoms. These symptoms can be greatly eased by one of our highly trained Otolaryngologists in Pembroke Pines. Dr. Hesse can recommend the best treatment for your symptoms and offer relief from those seasonal or year-round woes.
Treating the throat includes all treating all aspects of throat anatomy, from the tonsils, adenoids and uvula, to the epiglottis and trachea. We treat everything from tonsillitis to strep throat as well as conducting more invasive procedures to resolve breathing problems and sleep apnea.
Other conditions we can treat are salivary gland disorders and parathyroid disease.
