The top otolaryngologists in Rochester Regional Health's network are experts in performing head and neck surgeries. Learn about the common surgeries we perform below:
- Ear surgery – Most ear surgeries address hearing loss. Common procedures include eardrum repair (tympanoplasty), stapedectomy and ear tube placement.
- Nose or nasal surgery – Nose surgery often aims to correct sinus problems, which can be caused by conditions such as sinusitis. Surgery is also an option to treat other conditions such as chronic congestion or a deviated septum.
- Skin lesions – Usually performed as an outpatient procedure, most skin lesions do not cause serious problems. Different methods of removal are used depending on what type of lesion you have.
- Throat surgery – Throat surgery is typically recommended to treat conditions that affect the body's immune system. Common throat surgeries include removal of the tonsils (tonsillectomy) and adenoids (adenoidectomy).
Our surgeons are trained in the latest surgical techniques, including minimally invasive procedures, to treat pediatric and adult otolaryngology conditions ranging from common inner ear infections to more complex cancers of the head and neck.
