Pulsatile tinnitus is a sort of tinnitus in which the ringing or throbbing sound in the ears pulses, similar to a heartbeat. It is a symptom of a potentially serious underlying health condition.
Treatment options for pulsatile tinnitus
There are various treatment options for pulsatile tinnitus, ranging from medication and mechanical devices to surgery or lifestyle changes. If you have an abnormal sound in one or both of your ears, see an ENT, audiology specialist or a neuro-interventional specialist right away.
ENT treatments we offer
Whenever possible, our doctors use non-surgical treatments, such as medication, speech-language therapy and hearing aids. Additionally, image-guided surgery can be helpful for sinus repair. This type of procedure is less invasive and allows for better accuracy and fewer complications.
When surgery is required, we provide patients with an experienced medical team.
Sinus and allergies
A runny nose can turn into a more serious disease when viruses or bacteria infect the sinuses. Our ENT doctors specialize in minimally invasive, long-term solutions to treat these everyday sinus problems, such as:
- Post-nasal drip
Swallowing and throat conditions
Throat problems can range from minor nuisances to serious problems that can interfere with your ability to eat, breathe and communicate.
With the care of a highly trained ENT specialist, most throat conditions can be corrected, including:
- Trouble swallowing
- Voice problems
Head, face and neck cancer
Our ENT program treats complex medical issues, including skin and other cancers of the head and neck. These cancers can be particularly aggressive, making early detection critical.
Consult one of our ENT specialists immediately to treat:
- Head and neck cancers
- Salivary gland tumors
- Thyroid tumors
Pediatric ENT services
HealthONE's Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center offers specialized otolaryngology care for children.
