They may perform procedures to remove tonsils (tonsillectomy) or adenoids (adenoidectomy) or surgeries to treat sleep apnea and snoring.

Head and Neck Cancer: They are trained to diagnose and treat cancers of the head and neck region, including the thyroid gland and salivary glands. Treatment may involve surgery to remove tumors, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy, often in collaboration with oncologists.
