Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)
Otolaryngologists at Sacred Heart Medical Center treat conditions including sinus disease, neck tumors, thyroid and parathyroid masses, larynx problems, snoring and obstructive sleep disorders. In addition, they offer the latest minimally invasive surgical treatments for throat and neck cancer for better outcomes and less risk of infection.
The US Food and Drug Administration approved Transoral Robotic Surgery (TORS) in December 2009. Our surgeons began performing the procedure in 2010 using the da Vinci™ Si Surgical System at Sacred Heart.
In addition, our ENT surgeons have offered endoscopic balloon dilation, or Balloon Sinuplasty™, since May 2008 and perform about 40 cases per year.
