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.
