ENT

The specialty of ENT (ear, nose and throat) or otolaryngology is focused on disorders/conditions that range from extremely minor (such as a sore throat) to very complex (such as cancer). The otolaryngologists - ENT physicians - at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center are leaders in diagnosing, managing and treating conditions and diseases of the ear, nose and throat.

 



Patients at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center benefit from skull base endoscopic equipment for performing minimally invasive surgery.  The endoscopic approach allows surgeons to remove tumors that otherwise would require a large cranial opening and brain retraction or disfiguring facial scars.  Instead an endoscope is advanced through a natural opening such as the nasal cavity.

Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center also boasts an innovative electromagnetic image-guided Fusion™ ENT Navigation System for patients undergoing endoscopic sinus procedures.  Similar to a global positioning system, the equipment provides the surgeon with real-time images to help navigate in the sinuses for precise removal of diseased tissue while avoiding critical areas.
