Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)

Otolaryngology is the oldest medical specialty in the U.S., focusing on medical and surgical treatment for people who have disorders of the ear, nose, throat, and related areas. Today, these physicians are typically referred to as ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) physicians.
