Board Certified Otolaryngologist Dr. Pearson Windham and ENT Nurse Practitioner Holly Armstrong provide clinic evaluations for all common ear, nose and throat problems at ENT Consultants of North Mississippi on Mondays and Thursdays. Whether you’re dealing with sinus pressure, ear infections, mouth and throat abnormalities, hearing loss or swallowing difficulties, the ENT Consultants of North Mississippi team can do office examinations and minor surgery and more extensive procedures in the surgical suite at Greenwood Leflore Hospital.
Pediatric diseases: Common pediatric ENT problems include middle ear infections (otitis media), tonsillitis and adenoid enlargement. Frequent middle ear infections may require the placement of tubes in the eardrums to relieve pressure, alleviate pain and prevent future infections. Enlarged or frequently infected tonsils may require removal, as may enlarged adenoids.
Hearing loss may be caused by damage to the structures of the ear or acoustic nerve or by degenerative aging changes. An ENT surgeon will evaluate the severity of the hearing loss and recommend medical or surgical intervention if appropriate.
Nasal abnormalities include nosebleeds, deviated septum, nasal polyps and nasal airway obstruction. Sinuses may become inflamed or blocked, due to allergies, structural abnormalities or chronic infection.
Allergies are caused by the body’s reaction to an external irritant. ENT clinics can evaluate the specific cause of an allergy and recommend treatment to diminish or eliminate symptoms.
ENT physicians can evaluate and treat certain skin cancers and non-cancerous lesions in the head and neck area.
