Tinnitus or head noises is the perception of sound without an external source being present. Tinnitus may be an intermittent or continuous sound in one or both ears. Its pitch can go from a low roar to a high squeal or whine or it can have many sounds.

Tonsillitis refers to inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils (glands at the back of the throat, visible through the mouth). The inflammation may involve other areas of the back of the throat, including the adenoids and the lingual tonsils (tonsil tissue at the back of the tongue). There are several variations of tonsillitis: acute, recurrent, and chronic tonsillitis, and peritonsillar abscess.

Tonsils and adenoids are the body’s first line of defense as part of the immune system. They “sample” bacteria and viruses that enter the body through the mouth or nose, but they sometimes become infected. At times, they become more of a liability than an asset and may even cause airway obstruction or repeated bacterial infections. Your ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist can suggest the best treatment options.

Ligaments are bands of tissue that connect one bone to another. An injured ligament is considered to be sprain or a tear; both cause pain and swelling, usually resulting in a loss of some movement. Medical attention is necessary to assess the issue and determine a course of treatment.

Total hip replacement, (total hip arthroplasty), is the replacement of a hip joint as an alternative to other treatments. Arthritis damage that causes pain that no longer responds to treatment is usually the reason a hip replacement is chosen. The damaged pieces of the hip joint are replaced with artificial parts.
