    Individuals who suffer from ear, nose and throat problems can have wide reaching health concerns in other parts of their body. It is important to consult with a specialist in one or more fields of pathology.

    A doctor in Otolaryngology will be able to treat most ENT afflictions. They will also be able to diagnose disorders concerning the head and neck in general. However, they may need to refer you to an associate in a related field. For example, the field of otology would deal with problems concerning the ear.

    There can be quite a bit of pathology involved. Orthopedics may also be brought into play. For example, an oral surgeon may be needed for dental work that is causing difficulties with speech.

    Gastroenterology concerns the digestive system which can be affected by problems with the mouth. A tonsil that has become infected will need to be removed with surgery. A resident pediatrician can make a clinical diagnosis on this.

    Problems in the nose and throat can cause a person to snore. Problems with the thyroid can be serious. It's important to get a screening to detect early signs of cancer. Many ENT afflictions may be caused by an allergy a patient has. Rheumatology will concern seemingly unrelated problems with joints and bones. Otolaryngology is not so simple or easy to understand. It involves more than just orthopedics. All our tissue and organs are connected so when one part of the body is suffering this can affect the overall balance of our health.
