It used to be that you could count on your family doctor to know everything important about little Jimmy’s health history. Back in the day, say 1988, healthcare was a bit simpler and specialized medicine was not quite as pervasive and common as it is today.
Ear, Nose & Throat Doctors: Today’s Forward-Thinkers in Health Care
Otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors) are among those specialist physicians who have carved out a bold new niche in the healthcare industry with a variety of unique treatments and procedures ranging from balloon sinuplasty to surgical repair of deviated septums and rhinoplasty, a cosmetic surgery procedures.
Ear, Nose and Throat physicians must master a complex part of the body: the head and its inner workings from sinus passages to breathing flow in the mouth to hearing and ear canals and drums. The complex series of possible traumas and ailments is unique in the medical field and helps explain the singular position otolaryngologists maintain in the health and beauty industries.
Balloon Sinuplasty: A Technologically-Advanced, Safe Procedure
Physicians such as Dr. Wilson DuMornay in Fort Lauderdale, Florida are adept at keeping pace with the latest medical advances within their field, be they new medications to facilitate nasal air flow or new techniques in treating sleep apnea, a condition that affects over 58 million Americans and can be linked to everything from heart conditions to chronic fatigue and obesity.
Regarding the new trends in treating breathing and nasal blockages Dr. DuMornay comments: “I believe balloon sinuplasty is changing the way we think about treating chronic allergies and disorders related to bad breathing. Balloon Sinuplasty is changing the game for our patients because it safely increases breathing efficiency through the nose in a safe procedure that takes place in less than two hours in our offices.”
How exactly are otolaryngologists leading the way in healthcare when it comes to embracing technology? The results are enormously fascinating. Examples include mobile-friendly scheduling of appointments complete with downloadable .PDF documents (those pesky doctor forms you fill out at the waiting room); and increasingly safe medications that limit dosages and minimize patient healing for everything from surgical scars to nasal treatments.
American business relies in greater and great part on healthcare as a job creator. It is estimated that more than 23% of the full time workforce in the United States is employed in some healthcare capacity. The future is bright for doctors, nurses, and all the peripheral professionals in medicine.
