"Dr Purcelli is wonderful doctor who shows that he cares a great deal about his patients."
An ENT, also called an ear, nose and throat doctor or otolaryngologist, is trained to provide medical care for the structures of the head, neck, throat and larynx, nose and nasal cavities, and ears. Dr. Purcelli is skilled in advanced techniques to treat a wide range of problems, including:
benign and malignant tumors
diseases of the salivary glands
chronic and acute infections including sinusitis
throat or larynx problems including trouble swallowing and speaking
cysts and abscesses
hearing and balance disorders
ear diseases and disorders
facial nerve problems
Before any decision is made about surgery, Dr. Purcelli will perform a physical examination, including possible diagnostic imaging to gain a clear view of the structures of your head and neck. Once he makes a definitive diagnosis, he'll discuss your condition and all the possible treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits, so you feel comfortable about the decisions that are made regarding your treatment.
Your recovery will depend on the type of surgery you have. Many procedures can be performed as same-day surgeries, which means you'll have surgery in the morning and be able to go home at the end of the day after being monitored and evaluated. Other treatments may require an overnight hospital stay. Following your surgery, you'll see Dr. Purcelli for follow-up visits to ensure you're healing properly, and you may have additional imaging procedures performed so Dr. Purcelli can monitor your progress more closely.
