Hearing Health is Good Medicine
Otolaryngology (pronounced oh/toe/lair/in/goll/oh/jee) is the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.
Their special skills include diagnosing and managing diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face. Otolaryngologists diagnose, treat, and manage specialty-specific disorders as well as many primary care problems in both children and adults.
Dr. Gabriel de la Garza, Otolaryngologist (ENT) with Mid-Kansas ENT, has special interests in adult and pediatric ear, nose and throat: head and neck surgery; and allergy and sinus disease. His surgical interests include comprehensive ear surgery, sinus surgery, thyroid surgery and balloon sinuplasty. He sees patients and performs surgeries here at Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital on Mondays each week.
Working closely with Carly Sturm, AuD, the office also provides audiology services with a complete medical background, guiding their patients through their findings and working closely with the patient to determine the best possible options available to help correct the problem.
