What is an Otolaryngologist & Otolaryngology?
Otolaryngology is a field of medicine that specializes in treating and caring for the ears, nose and throat. A doctor that has received extensive medical training in this field is known as an otolaryngologist or an ear, nose and throat doctor (sometimes just an ENT for short). The field of otolaryngology has been around since the 19th century, and today the field has made great strides in being able to treat conditions such as head and neck cancer through revolutionary techniques and technologies.
Our otolaryngologist, Dr. William Bond, Jr., and his team provide comprehensive ear, nose and throat care to patients of all ages living in and around Washington, DC. At our ENT practice, we specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions, disorders and injuries that affect the ears, nose and throat, as well as the head and neck.
Dr. Bond is able to address a variety of problems that affect the ears. For example, many children under the age of six are prone to ear infections. While children can turn to their pediatrician, if they are dealing with severe or persistent infections an otolaryngologist will be able to provide them with a more advanced and effective treatment plan. Furthermore, issues that affect balance or hearing can also be treated at our office.
From nasal polyps and deviated septums to allergies and recurring sinus infections, there are many reasons someone may have difficulty breathing through their nose. Fortunately, Dr. Bond and his medical staff can determine the cause of your breathing difficulties and provide you with a wide range of treatment options and procedures to open up blocked nasal passages, manage allergies and correct deformities to improve breathing.
An otolaryngologist can also detect and provide proper treatment for a variety of esophageal and voice disorders and injuries. If you are dealing with recurring tonsillitis, if you have trouble swallowing or if you notice persistent hoarseness or other vocal changes an ENT will be able to provide you with the answers you need to know what’s going on and how to best treat or manage your symptoms.
