Ear, Nose & Throat 

Whether you’re experiencing troublesome sinus symptoms or have a child who has tonsillitis, it’s no fun to have ear, nose or throat problems. Of course, some of the common procedures performed by ENT specialists include removal of tonsils and adenoids, and the placement of ear tubes. Because these procedures are usually performed on children, the physicians on our medical staff, and our other staff and facilities are geared toward providing safe, friendly, advanced care for children. At Baylor Plano, we offer minimally invasive treatments to help reduce pain and shorten recovery for patients of all ages. 

Ear, nose and throat procedures we perform include:

  • Endoscopic sinus surgery
  • Deviated nasal septum repair (septoplasty)
  • Thyroid surgery (hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism)
  • Parathyroid surgery (hyperparathyroidism)
  • Tonsillectomy
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Cochlear implants
  • Cancer-related biopsy and malignancy removal
  • Complex head and neck surgeries 

Advanced Technology

Patients who choose Baylor Plano can be confident that the ENT surgeons on our medical staff are using innovative technology. 

Advanced technologies we utilize include:

  • Balloon sinuplastyTM. This procedure allows for the opening of sinuses with surgical balloons. For patients with chronic sinusitis or blocked sinuses, this can often result in a quicker recovery.
  • Coblation® Technology. Used in tonsillectomy, Coblation uses radiofrequency energy instead of heat. This typically results in less pain and a quicker return to a regular diet.
  • Stryker® Navigation System. Stryker allows surgeons to track their movements within the sinus, brain and spine with more precision. Patients first undergo either CT or MRI scans to map their anatomy. During surgery, an infrared camera and tracking software help guide doctors as they operate by displaying an image of the surgical site on a large screen. 

This leads to safer, more effective movement within very tight areas, which is especially critical since the sinuses are close to the eyes and the brain.
