Head and Neck Disorders

Abnormalities of the muscles, soft-tissues, teeth, and bones of the head and neck can interfere with breathing, eating, sense of smell, and can be life-threatening. 

Our head and neck specialists can work with you to diagnose and treat:

  • Trauma
  • Leakage of cerebrospinal fluid through the nose (CSF rhinitis)
  • Obstruction of the nasal and sinus passages (example: deviated septum)
  • Tumors of the thyroid (cancerous and non-cancerous)
  • Tumors of the skull base
  • Birth defects of the head, face, and neck
  • Problems caused by infections of the head and neck, including teeth and gums
  • Glandular problems, such as disorders of the thyroid or pituitary
