Hearing, speaking and breathing: These typically automatic actions enable your communication and, indeed, life itself. When any of the intricate systems in your ears, nose or throat suffer from injury or illness, turn to otolaryngologists in the Sutter Health network for support. These specialists diagnose and treat conditions that affect the ears, nose and sinuses, voice box (larynx), oral cavity, and mouth and throat (upper pharynx), as well as structures of the neck and face.
Using state-of-the-art technology and research, more than 140 otolaryngologists in the Sutter Health network care for a wide range of conditions, from sinusitis and hearing loss to obstructive sleep apnea and head and neck cancer. Otolaryngology differs from other specialties because doctors receive training in both medicine and surgery—so you won’t need a referral to a separate surgeon.
Our staff will also help you with medication management, surgery prep and post-op care, and education or support as needed throughout your treatment and healing process.
When your child suffers painful ear infections or needs attention for a structural problem, such as cleft palate, a family-centered multi-disciplinary team, consisting of ear, nose and throat doctors and cosmetic surgeons, ensures that you and your little one will receive personalized treatment options to restore health with minimum stress.
