ABOUT OTOLARYNGOLOGY - HEAD & NECK SURGERY


This specialty is known by many names including otorhinolaryngology or otolaryngology (ORL for short) and ear, nose and throat surgery (or ENT). As a result of expertise gained in dealing with the upper aerodigestive tract, the specialty has evolved to include surgery for tumours of the head and neck region. The official title is now ‘Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery’ (ORL-HNS).
