Dr. Ted Benke (pronounced Ben-key) specializes in the sensitive area of the body that starts at the base of the neck and moves up to encompass all the delicate workings of your ears, your nose and your throat. That’s how the term “ENT” came about. It stands for Ear, Nose & Throat. Those are the areas treated by an Otolaryngologist.
What most people don’t know is that an ENT physician also diagnoses and treats patients for snoring, allergies, and sleep apnea in addition to all forms of sinus problems, earaches, and hearing loss.
In addition, Dr. Benke is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Treating the area of the head and neck also involves treating the skin that covers this vital area, and the cartilage that supports it. Dr. Benke can, for example, change the shape of your nose if you don’t happen to like it, or he can repair damage to your nose if skin cancer has harmed it.
Dr. Benke’s practice provides the added comfort of knowing that the physician who diagnoses your problem is also a surgeon who can correct it, saving you trips out of town and multiple sets of records. This is especially helpful when children and older adults are involved.
