Clinical practice within this field involves the medical and surgical diagnosis and management from the very common to the very rare diseases, such as treatment of the neck in squamous cell carcinoma, chronic rhinosinusitis and auditory neuropathy. Novel research and emerging technologies are changing how these disease processes are managed, including endoscopic approaches and external approaches.
