Appasamy Hospitals ENT Department focuses on disorders of the ear, nose and throat. Generally people think that ENT deals with hearing loss, ear infections or problems of the sinus. In reality it deals with much more. The ENT Department provides care for a wide range of disorders including hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language. ENT Specialists also treat head and neck cancers and perform reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery.
