Ear, nose and throat specialists play a key role in our daily healthcare needs. This area of specialization is popularly known as ENT, but a more scientific version of it is otolaryngology. The practitioners are well trained in the surgical treatment as well as the management of patients with the related problems. Apart from the three main parts that are covered in the treatment, the other body parts around them are also examined and treated. For instance, if a patient reports having a problem with the neck, any suspected section of the body that might be affected is also investigated.
The Leading Edge, with Host Jimmy Johnson, will be venturing into a special segment to look at the role of the ENT physicians. Evidently, without the help of these important men and women, many people would have succumbed to problems related to the larynx, nose, ear, mouth, face, sinuses, and neck among other parts.
When it comes to the ears, the doctors receive specialized training that helps them tackle ear loss, ear noise, cranial nerve disorders, balance disorders and the ear infections. A popular condition that nose specialists are currently trying to grapple with is chronic sinusitis that is taking down the lives of many people every year. Throat complications that require the attention of these physicians are voice and swallowing disorders. These are just some of the expected areas that are to be covered in the show.
