If you are experiencing ear, nose, or throat problems, you may be referred to an otolaryngologist, especially if surgery may be needed.

Dr. Peter Brownrigg in Ottawa, ON, is board-certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology.

Find out how Dr. Browning can use his extensive medical and surgical education and training to treat your ear, nose, and throat issues.

What Is an Otolaryngologist?

An otolaryngologist is also called an ENT doctor. ENT stands for ears, nose, and throat, meaning these doctors specialize in treating conditions of the head and neck. In fact, the word otolaryngology is derived from otorhinolaryngology, a combination of the Greek words for ear (otos), nose (rhis), and throat (larynx).

Medical Conditions Normally Treated by Otolaryngologists


  • Sinus infections, swollen sinus cavities, or nose-related breathing issues
  • Throat problems like swallowing difficulties or tonsillitis
  • Obstructive sleep apnea caused by blocked upper airways 
  • Hearing loss or ear infections

Dr. Brownrigg is a leading board-certified provider of plastic surgery who focuses on the surgical side of otolaryngology. He completed a three-year otolaryngology surgery residency at the University of Toronto, which allowed him to become a board-certified otolaryngologist as well. To this day, he remains an associate professor of otolaryngology at the University of Ottawa.

Dr. Brownrigg is absolutely amazing. I had a deviated septum and nasal valve collapse. I went in for an appt and then booked a surgery for a few months later. He came to talk to me before and after the surgery and made sure I was comfortable and calm. The surgery was a success! I can now breath much clearer than before and my nose looks beautiful!

Dr Brownrigg repaired my nose twice. I had broken it in 2 separate incidents. I was worried that my breathing would be impaired forever . After each break Dr Brownrigg restored my appearance and breathing . Aesthetically my nose was perfect after each procedure. Thank you Dr Brownrigg for the great service and results .

Commonly called a nose job, Dr. Brownrigg can perform rhinoplasty to alter the cosmetic appearance of your nose and to improve its internal structure. For example, a deviated septum, caused by one nasal passage being smaller than the other, can be corrected with rhinoplasty. This can improve breathing and sleeping by eliminating airway obstructions inside your sinus areas.
