- Head and neck tumor removal, including cancerous and noncancerous tumors in the head and neck.
- Hearing tests
- Non-surgical procedures, such as endoscopy to look in the nose and throat with a small camera.
- Sleep surgery. Upper airway stimulation therapy is an alternative surgical treatment option for patients with obstructive sleep apnea who have difficulty with continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, therapy.
- Surgical options for nose and sinus disorders, including:
- adenoidectomy to remove adenoids that contribute to ear or sinus infections, heavy breathing and snoring.
- cryotherapy for rhinitis.
