UTMB Health’s Ear, Nose & Throat Consultants and the Center for Audiology & Speech Pathology have long been leaders in the healthcare industry. Our practice is championed by a faculty of driven physicians, who have trained at leading centers throughout the country and are now exercising their expertise on Galveston Island and at our mainland clinics in League City and Texas City.
Our physicians treat diseases and disorders of the ears, nose, throat, head, neck, and face, and their primary goal is to provide exemplary individualized care for our patients. Our surgeons provide care ranging from routine health maintenance and screening to intensive surgical management for neonates, children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric adults.
Below are some of our more common areas of treatment.

Sinus and Allergy conditions can make life miserable. Breathing problems, congestion, fatigue, altered sleep are just some of the symptoms sinus and allergy sufferers live with every day. Often times, patients rely on over-the-counter treatments and incorrectly diagnose their condition.
The sinus and allergy specialists at UTMB Health can provide a proper evaluation of your condition to determine if it is sinus related or an allergy condition. With convenient appointments, our specialists will develop a personalized treatment plan to treat a wide range of conditions:
Feeling unsteady or dizzy can be caused by many factors such as poor circulation, inner ear disease, medication usage, injury, infection, allergies, and/or neurological disease.

Our ENT physicians can evaluate and treat these problems which may include:
Forty-five percent of normal adults snore at least occasionally, and 25 percent are habitual snorers. Snoring is also an indication of obstructed breathing. Therefore, it should not be taken lightly.

The range of conditions that otolaryngologists diagnose and treat are widely varied and can involve the whole face, nose, lips, ears, and neck.

Other conditions that are the result of accidents, trauma, burns, or previous surgery are also corrected with this type of surgery. In addition, some reconstructive procedures are required to treat existing diseases like skin cancer and cancers of the head and neck.
Cosmetic facial plastic surgery is surgery performed to enhance the visual appearance of the facial structures and features. Common conditions include:
The head and neck area encompasses organs with common disease. These are often associated with common infections within these sites, but at times can also include more serious conditions such as cancers within this anatomical area.

The head and neck contains 6 major salivary glands. Each of these can be afflicted with common conditions that include:
