What kind of Department is Yao municipal hospital's department of Otorhinolaryngology?

Otorhinolaryngology is the department that diagnoses and treats ear, nose and throat (laryngopharyngeal) diseases , using internal medicine (drugs and treatments) and surgery (operations).
In addition, as it treats "swellings (tumors)" from the neck up, Otolaryngology is also called Head and Neck Surgery in Europe and America.
