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. Its otolaryngology (ENT)/head and neck surgeons perform hundreds of more common procedures, such as removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), repair of eardrum (tympanic membrane) perforations and sinus surgery. And they do highly complex surgeries, such as endoscopy for pituitary tumors, robotic surgery for throat cancer and microsurgery for acoustic neuroma tumors.

Mayo Clinic ENT specialists offer a full range of diagnostic assessments, medical treatments and surgical services and procedures, though not all services are available at each location. Please confirm when you request an appointment.
