U.S. News and World Report ranks Beaumont among the top hospitals for complex surgery on the ear, nose and throat as well as related areas of the head and neck. Beaumont Otorhinolaryngologists (Ear, Nose and Throat surgeons) focus on treating disorders of the voice box (larynx), mouth, pharynx, sinuses, middle ear, front and side of the skull base. The use of minimally invasive and image guided surgical techniques allow patients to spend less time in the operating room, require less postoperative care and recover more quickly.
Beaumont offers the most sophisticated imaging capabilities for care of the ENT patient including: CT, MRI and PET scanning and the CT Landmarx system for endoscopic sinus surgery. ENT surgeons at Beaumont function as part of a large multidisciplinary team which includes Medical and Radiation oncologists, Radiologists, Nuclear Medicine specialists and Anatomic pathologists who participate actively in treatment planning through the Head and Neck Tumor Board. Plastic surgeons, Speech pathologists and nutritional specialists play an important role in the rehabilitation and recovery of surgical patients.
Our surgical team performs a range of otorhinolaryngeal surgical procedures including:
Head and neck cancer
Anterior skull base
Lateral skull base
Each patient is evaluated before and after treatment with a variety diagnostic tools:
Because patients with head and neck cancer usually receive a variety of treatments from surgery to radiation and chemotherapy, Beaumont's tumor board discusses every major case to broaden the basis for complex decisions. After treatment is complete, patients with neck cancer get repeated follow-up PET scans rather than neck dissections to reduce recurrence or spread of the disease.
Beaumont ENT surgeons often use simultaneous chemoradiation therapy or minimally invasive surgery to preserve organs, ENT surgeons and radiologists plan radiation dosing together. For years after treatment, Beaumont surgeons and radiation/medical oncologists continue to evaluate patients. When needed, Beaumont routinely involves speech pathologists after surgery for objective voice analysis and swallowing training and dieticians also consult with patients to optimize nutrition.
