Wayne Health’s experienced team of board-certified otolaryngology physicians, speech language pathologists and audiologists offer comprehensive care for ear, nose and throat (ENT) disorders. Our ENT team collaborates with experts in endocrinology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, dermatology, allergy and immunology, thoracic surgery and medical oncology to develop treatment plans addressing all of a patient’s needs. We offer the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies to handle even the most complex cases.
Wayne Health’s otology and neurotology treatments include medical therapy, microsurgery, laser treatments, bone-anchored hearing aids, cochlear implants, stereotactic radiosurgery (Gamma Knife) and rehabilitation. Our physicians also continue to advance the field of minimally invasive skull base surgery for cerebral sinus fluid leaks, revision sinus surgery and benign and malignant sinus tumors.
Our Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons have extensive training and expertise in the management of maxillofacial injuries, internal and external nasal deformity, nasal obstruction, aging of the forehead and brow region, upper and lower eyelid excess, and the aging face and neck. In addition, we correct skin abnormalities, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles of the face with dermabrasion and chemical peeling. We provide expert care in reconstructing skin cancer defects of the face and nose, treating major and minor soft tissue injuries of the face and improving the appearance of scars. We also provide rehabilitation care of a paralyzed face, working in conjunction with our otology and lateral skull base team.
Through our affiliation with the Karmanos Cancer Institute (KCI) for head and neck cancer, our ENT physicians offer new treatment methods, including endoscopic and robotic procedures, to reduce complications and shorten recovery. KCI is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Detroit metropolitan area and one of only 51 such institutions in the United States. This puts the Karmanos Cancer Institute at the forefront of cancer research and gives our patients access to clinical trials and multidisciplinary teams of cancer specialists not found at community hospitals.
Wayne Health physicians and researchers are faculty members at Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic, translational and clinical research. This makes the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other providers without a medical school affiliation, and before FDA approval or commercial availability.
Areas of research focus include: head and neck cancer; mechanisms of hearing loss; ear infection; tinnitus; hearing implants; allergies; new reconstructive surgical techniques, including medical therapy and immunotherapy; and stem cell research. Wayne Health faculty members are responsible for hundreds of publications, presentations and lectures each year that advance medical knowledge in the field of ear, nose and throat care.
