Latest work with IntechOpen by Balwant Singh Gendeh

This book emphasizes on different aspects of otolaryngology - the medical sciences of diagnosis and treatment of ENT disorders. "Otolaryngology" is divided into various clinical sub-specialities, namely otology, rhinology, laryngology, and head and neck. This book incorporates new developments, as well as future perspectives in otolaryngology. I would like to dedicate this book to those of you who will pick up the torch and by continued research, close clinical observation and the highest quality of clinical care, as well as by publication and selfless teaching, further advance knowledge in otolaryngology from this point forward. It is intended to be a guide to other books to follow. Otolaryngologists, researches, specialists, trainees, and general practitioners with interest in otolaryngology will find this book interesting and useful.
