Treatments and services we offer
Our ear, nose and throat team provides the complete spectrum of nonsurgical treatments and surgery. We’re experienced in the latest, most advanced diagnostic tools and treatments such as:
Specialized expertise in ear, nose and throat conditions and injuries
All of our ENT specialists are board-certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. This certification requires intensive medical study in diagnosing and treating conditions of the ear, nose, and throat. Several of our doctors completed advanced (fellowship) training in subspecialties such as head and neck cancer. Their training and experience has made our team experts in all types of ear, nose and throat cancers as well as other conditions and injuries.
High-quality, personalized care for complex head and neck cases
At Overlake, our ENT specialists use the latest techniques to treat hard-to-manage ear, nasal, sinus and other conditions. Our surgeons have the expertise to perform intricate procedures for cochlear implant surgery to restore hearing. Doctors and providers around Washington state refer their patients to us because of our ability to care for even the most complex cases.
For head and neck cancers, Overlake partners with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, giving you access to expert oncologists and surgeons. Through this alliance, you may also be eligible to participate in clinical trials that offer groundbreaking cancer treatments before they’re widely available.
Multispecialty team approach for comprehensive care
Our team treats people with anything from a simple ear infection to hearing loss to head and neck cancers. If you need specialized care for complex problems, our team includes subspecialists in several fields of ENT medicine who provide nonsurgical and surgical treatment. We often perform collaborative surgeries where two of our surgeons work together on complex cases.
Our otolaryngologists work alongside several other types of specialists, such as neurosurgeons and endocrinologists, when symptoms affect other areas of your body. We also coordinate your care with audiologists, speech-language pathologists, registered dietitians and physical therapists to ensure you receive the care and services you need.
Complete ENT care for newborns through older people
We provide a broad scope of care to diagnose and treat common and rare ENT conditions in people of all ages. We work closely with you to understand your symptoms so that we can tailor a treatment plan for your individual needs. Our ENT specialists have experience helping people manage hearing and speech problems, asthma and allergies, and swallowing problems using medical and surgical solutions. Our team includes a pediatric otolaryngologist with specialized training to care for the unique needs of children.
