People with conditions of ear, nose, throat, and head and neck are cared for by the specialists of the Mayo Clinic Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT)/Head and Neck Surgery. The clinic has one of the largest ear, nose and throat practices in the world, with more than 50 specialists committed to providing individualized medical and surgical care to people at its campuses in Arizona, Minnesota and Florida. Mayo Clinic Health System locations serve more than 60 communities in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. These sites bring Mayo Clinic otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery to their local communities.

Mayo Clinic otorhinolaryngologists work closely with other specialists to provide coordinated, comprehensive care for thousands of people each year. Depending on your situation, your doctor may collaborate with experts in audiology, endocrinology, speech pathology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, dermatology, allergy and immunology, neurology, plastic surgery, pulmonary medicine, sports medicine, oncology, and other areas as needed. Pediatric otorhinolaryngologists consult with other pediatric specialists to provide comprehensive care for children. Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota is one of the few medical centers in the United States with the expertise to perform specialized pediatric otolaryngology surgeries, such as laryngotracheal reconstruction.

Physician-scientists at Mayo Clinic conduct research to develop and improve treatment options. Mayo Clinic's Otorhinolaryngology (ENT)/Head and Neck Surgery researchers have advanced surgical treatments, such as through-the-mouth (transoral) laser microsurgery, transoral robotic surgery, laryngeal transplants, and small blood vessel (microvascular) head and neck reconstruction surgery. In fact, Mayo Clinic surgeons were among the earliest pioneers of transoral minimally invasive techniques to remove tumors.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Ariz., are ranked among the Best Hospitals for ear, nose and throat by U.S. News & World Report.

Mayo Clinic is nationally recognized for expertise in a full range of medical and surgical services for people with problems of the ear, nose, sinus, head and neck.
