The Ear, Nose, and Throat physician is formally known as an Otolaryngologist-Head and Neck Surgeon. The scope of our practice is very diverse, encompassing nearly any medical or surgical disease of the ear, nose, throat, face, or neck.
Diseases of the ear include middle and outer ear infections (otitis media and otitis externa), hearing loss, otosclerosis, ringing, dizziness, vertigo, middle ear lesions, and external ear lesions. Surgical excision of external ear lesions/cancer with reconstruction is one of Dr. Janning’s specialties. He also performs otoplasty (ear pinning) for “lop” ears.
Diseases of the nose include rhinosinusitis, runny nose, nasal congestion and obstruction (from septal deviation and turbinate swelling), loss of sense of smell, and lesions of the outer nose. Surgical procedures include endoscopic sinus surgery, septorhinoplasty, excision of nasal lesions with reconstruction, and others.
Throat disorders include adenotonsillitis; snoring and sleep apnea; throat clearing (“globus”); dry mouth; hoarseness; difficulty swallowing; and lesions of the mouth, tongue, lips, and vocal cords. Dr. Janning has been performing Coblation Assisted Tonsillectomy longer than any other physician in Minnesota. Dr. Janning performs several technologically advanced procedures to treat snoring and sleep apnea. These procedures include the Repose Tongue™, Hyoid Suspension Procedure™, Injection Snoreplasty™.
Other head and neck disorders managed by Dr. Janning include thyroid, salivary gland and neck mass excision, cancer excision and reconstruction of the face and neck.
Cosmetic and aesthetic procedures performed by Dr. Janning include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), otoplasty (ear pinning), brow lift, rhinoplasty, septorhinoplasty, Botox™ Cosmetic injection, Radiesse and Restylane™.
