Ear Nose And Throat Jackson MS

What Is An ENT Jackson MS Surgeon?

If you are suffering from a recurring ear, nose or throat problem that is not responding to medical treatment, your Jackson MS ENT specialist may advise surgery, for which the skills of a specially qualified ENT surgeon will be required. An ENT surgeon is also known as an otolaryngologist or otorhinolaryngologist. The medical term ‘otorhinolaryngologist’ is derived from the Classical Greek words ‘ot’ meaning ear, ‘rhino’ meaning nose, ‘laryng’ meaning throat, and ‘logy’ meaning study. It literally means ‘the study of the ear, nose and throat’.


ENT Jackson MS surgeons specialize in performing surgery for the treatment of various conditions, diseases and deformities, related to the ears, nose, throat, head and neck. They are basically medical doctors with undergraduate degrees (MD, DO, MBBS, MBChB), who have completed at least one year of general surgical residency, and at least four years of ear, nose and throat surgical residency. In addition, some ENT surgeons complete special training programs to specialize in fields such as pediatric ENT, laryngology and otology. On an average, ENT surgeons receive a total of fifteen to sixteen years of training in the field, before they begin practicing.

In a modern Jackson MS ENT clinic, an ENT surgeon is usually supported by ENT doctors as well as trained nurses, anesthetists and other medical assistants. Some common types of surgery performed by ENT surgeons are:

• Tonsillectomy: This procedure is one of the most common surgeries performed by an Ear Nose Throat surgeon. It is usually advised when a patient experiences recurrent infections of acute tonsillitis. Tonsillectomies can result in discomfort for a few days, and may sometimes require a hospital stay. Patients usually recover in about two to three weeks.

Pediatric ENT

• Rhinoplasty: This procedure can be performed for aesthetic reasons, as well as for functional or reconstructive purposes. The procedure usually lasts between one to four hours, depending on the complexity of the particular case. In some cases, bone and cartilage is grafted from other parts of the patient’s body, and transplanted to the nose.

• Adenoidectomy: This procedure involves the removal of the adenoids, which are a single clump of tissue, located at the back of the nose. Some of the reasons for which removal is suggested are chronic infections, impaired breathing and earaches. Adenoidectomies are usually performed on an outpatient basis, under general anesthesia.

• Removal of swellings: ENT surgeons may often have to remove cysts and swellings in the ear, nose, throat, neck and head area. In addition, they may also sometimes have to remove cancerous or non-cancerous tumors, as well.


• Hearing loss: Individuals may sometimes lose their ability to hear properly, due to an accidental injury, infection, old age or other factors. In some cases, they may hear strange noises in their ears, like a buzzing, tinkling or squeaking. If the patient’s hearing does not get corrected through medicines or therapy, they may be advised ear surgery.

If you have been advised to consult with an ENT Jackson MS surgeon by your doctor, you should choose a highly experienced ENT surgeon, whom you trust and are comfortable with.

Seeing an ENT for Nose Bleeds

Pediatric ENT

Because these three organs are inter-connected, picking up a problem in one of the three can cause a host of different problems in the other two; this is where the ENT specialist steps in as he is well versed in the treatments of any ENT disorders and the related illnesses that these problems can cause. Symptoms There are far too many disorders to list; this article is focused on a few of the common ENT ailments that most of us have had before: 1) Sinusitis - probably the most common, this is the congestion of the nasal passages, accompanied by headaches, sneezing, postnasal drip and a runny nose. Quite unpleasant but easy enough to solve [if there is no underlying serious medical condition]. 2) Swimmers ear - if the earlobe is tugged the patient experiences extreme pain and the patient may have pain while chewing accompanied by swollen lymph nodes. Can be solved with over the counter medication. 3) Inner ear infection - there may be a feeling of increased pressure in the ear with a fair amount of pain, this is probably caused by a fungal infection in the inner canal and will need immediate attention. 4) Ear infection - dull pain accompanied by loss of balance, hearing and a fluid discharge are all signs of a problem can be solved by over the counter medication but if no improvement is noted after a day or two, the patient will need to see a doctor. 5) Strep throat - fever, fatigue, difficulty in swallowing, sore throat and enlarged lymph nodes, patient needs medication for this problem and will need to see a doctor for an anti-biotic and a throat analgesic. 6) Tonsillitis - really sore throat, fever, chills, and difficulty in swallowing, this condition definitely needs medical care as it is recurring and may need surgery. There are other throat, ear and nose infections out there but the ones above are generally the most diagnosed. Causes * environmental - generally due to dampness [swimmers ear] an infection could occur if no care is taken in keeping the ear canal dry and clean * viral - affect more than one part of the body and cannot be cured with a anti-biotic * bacterial - these infections are generally localized [affect only one side of the throat] and occur when the area is bruised or damaged in some way * fungal - the monster of the bunch, immediate attention is needed as any delay could compound the problem due to the exponential growth of fungi Home remedies 1) Garlic oil - has antimicrobial properties and can be used to treat an ear infection 2) Ginger tea - has the same properties as garlic and can be used to soothe a sore throat 3) Eucalyptus oil - used in conjunction with steam can relieve congestion and soothe inflammation in throat or nasal infections 4) Gargle - salt is a mild antiseptic and can be gargled with water to treat a throat infection Please remember that infants and toddlers need to see the doctor if any of these problems occur, they have a underdeveloped immune system and so need assistance with the curing/healing of any of these problems.
