Our doctors, nurses, and other team members annually treat thousands of patients with voice, balance, hearing, and swallowing issues. But, most importantly, they specialize in you and your needs.

Why Choose Us

Grady’s ENT Center offers world-class care. It excels in diagnosing and treating diverse conditions and disorders of the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck – from the simple to the severe.

Our ENT specialists can treat your sinus headache, your child’s swimmer’s ear, or your husband’s sleep apnea. They include surgeons who can perform operations to restore hearing, open blocked airways, remove head, neck, and throat cancers, and rebuild these structures.

And, because ear, nose, and throat issues are sometimes related to other health problems, Grady offers a unique advantage. We’ve spent more than 125 years building the most comprehensive medical services in Atlanta to deliver the best care possible.

What We Treat

Grady treats countless ENT disorders, including:

Hearing loss

Gradual hearing loss is common as people age. About a third of Americans between 65 and 75 have experienced some hearing loss.  While most types of hearing loss cannot be reversed, our team can usually help improve what people do hear.

Difficulty breathing through the nose

Up to 75 percent of Americans have a deviated septum, which makes one nasal passage narrower and can make breathing more difficult. Some patients suffer from chronic sinusitis, adenoids, and polyps, which can also block the nasal passages. These conditions can generally be improved with surgery.

Learn more about sinusitis and deviated septums here.

Ringing in the ears

Up to 20 percent of Americans experience a noise or ringing in the ears, a condition called tinnitus. The condition typically is a symptom of an underlying condition and can be improved with treatment.

Learn more about tinnitus here.

Head, neck cancer

These cancers account for about 4 percent of all cancers in the U.S. and are more than twice as common among men. People over 50 are more likely to develop these cancers. Treatment can include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of treatments.

Goiter, thyroid cancer

The thyroid gland might be larger than usual for many reasons, and most of the time it is not cancer. Goiters and thyroid cancers can be treated with medication, surgery, and other therapies.

Facial trauma

Also known as maxillofacial trauma, this is any physical trauma to the face. It can involve soft tissue injures like burns and bruises or fractures that damage the nose, jaw, or eye. Treatment may require surgery.
