Conditions We Treat
Head and Neck Cancer
A lump or sore that doesn’t heal, a sore throat that doesn’t go away, difficulty swallowing, or a change or hoarseness in the voice are all possible symptoms of a potentially cancerous head or neck tumor. Early detection is crucial to successful treatment.
Skin cancer refers to the growth of malignant cells in the skin. There are various types of skin cancers, but the three most common are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
Bell’s palsy typically involves temporary paralysis on one side of the face, with potential symptoms such as facial weakness, drooping, or stiffness; drooling; jaw pain; and difficulty tasting, smiling, or closing the eye. It’s a rare condition that normally resolves itself, but medication may help with certain symptoms.
Facial Sports Injuries
Whether a broken nose, a fractured cheekbone, a swollen eye, or another condition, facial sports injuries can affect a child’s ability to breathe, eat, see, smell, or handle other crucial functions. Safety and protection are key to prevention, but it’s important to seek immediate medical help if injury occurs.
Ménière’s disease is an inner-ear disorder that impacts balance and hearing and typically affects people approaching middle age, with onset occurring sometime during their 40s to 60s. It can affect one or both ears and cause symptoms such as extreme dizziness, tinnitus, a feeling of fullness in the ear, and hearing loss.
Disorders of the thyroid gland, an organ crucial to physiological functions such as breathing and maintaining body temperature, largely involve overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism; underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism; enlarged thyroid, or goiter; or cancer.
Treatment and Procedure Options
