As we approach fall and winter, we wish to update you on your ear nose and throat health. We recommend that you have your humidifiers inspected and cleaned. If you don't have one, this may be a good time to purchase. When heaters go on, so should humidifiers. In addition, nasal saline sprays and netty pots often times aid in healthy noses and throats. It is becoming increasingly well known how important good nasal breathing is for our overall health. I am sending a link to a recent story aired on CBS News, featuring James Nestor, author of the recent book, "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art". It is very insightful and I hope you enjoy it.

We continue to take very strict COVID precautions. We have had no cases as a result anyone coming to our office or having surgery with us at Northwestern Hospital.
Flu season is rapidly approaching and strongly encourage the flu vaccine.
We are very pleased with our results of the Inspire(inspiresleep.com)procedure for sleep apnea. This has proven to be an excellent outpatient procedure for those who are not getting good results with CPAP.
As always, we offer a full range of services for your hearing health. We provide the most current technology for testing your hearing and providing the most appropriate hearing aids for each individual.
Please feel free to call the office(312-988-7777) for further information on all of the above or to set up an appointment. You may also send individual emails through our patient portal.

Wishing you all good health and safety,

5 Ways an ENT Doctor Can Improve Your Life

When you visit your ENT doctor, you’re able to take care of your entire head and it’s essential to make sure that you’re able to breathe correctly and make sure that there aren’t any issues in your sinuses that could stop you from enjoying your normal life. Dr. Gordon Siegel at Midwest Ear Nose and Throat in Chicago, IL, can explain some reasons how seeing an ENT doctor can benefit your life.

5 Ways an ENT Doctor Can Help You

  1. You’ll be able to deal with sinus pain. When you see your ENT doctor in Chicago, IL, you’ll be able to address issues like sinus pain. They’ll be able to take a look at your sinuses and see what could be causing your issues. This can help you feel normal and can help stop pressure and pain that you may deal with.
  2. You can sleep better. If you’re dealing with sleep apnea, you’re not able to get the proper sleep that your body needs. Sleep apnea causes breaks in your breathing throughout the night, and you’ll probably feel exhausted, even after you think you’ve gotten a full night’s sleep. Your ENT doctor can address these issues and correct them so that you can finally get the sleep that you deserve.
  3. You can deal with hearing loss. When you’ve experienced issues with hearing loss, it can be difficult to adjust to a new way of living. Your doctor will be able to help you adjust and help you get fitted for hearing aids if that’s something that could work for your issues.
  4. You’ll be able to breathe easier. If you’re dealing with sinus issues or nasal problems, it can be difficult to breathe correctly and get the air that your body needs to function. Your doctor can take a look at these issues and get them corrected.
  5. You can sing and speak better. If you’re dealing with throat issues that impact your ability to sing or speak, your doctor will be able to examine your throat and recommend solutions to whatever is causing your issues.
