When something is right in your backyard, you don’t always realize how lucky you are to have it. In 1923, Charlotte welcomed Charlotte Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital and its three physicians to the community (that’s 92 years ago!). Better known now as Charlotte Eye Ear Nose & Throat Associates (CEENTA), CEENTA has over 100 providers in 19 locations bringing specialty care to our community.
What does it mean to have the second largest multi-specialty practice of its kind on the East Coast in your city? You don’t have to travel to receive top-quality care! Their physicians come from prestigious medical schools and fellowship programs which mean you and your family are receiving the best possible care when you visit them.
Did you know these fun facts about CEENTA?
– One of its physicians invented a three-dimensional fluoroscope that helps radiologists and doctors locate foreign bodies on X-ray and also proved that glass in the eye can be photographed on X-ray film.
– One of its physicians pioneered the nasal approach to tear duct surgery.
– One of its physicians designed the ear tube.
You don’t have to be practicing with or working for a medical university to discover more in your field. Actually, in 1992, CEENTA’s clinical research department, Southeast Clinical Research Associates, LLC, was established to conduct phase I-IV clinical research trials on eye and ear, nose and throat disorders. To this day, they continue to advance medicine through their research studies.
Not only can you visit them for pediatric and adult comprehensive eye, ear, nose and throat care but also for highly specialized care. These services include: audiology, allergy, cataracts, cochlear implants, cornea diseases, diabetic eye care, glaucoma, head and neck cancer, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, optical and contact lens, pediatric airway, sleep medicine, thyroid treatment and voice and swallowing . It seems as though everything you need in this field can be taken care of by this one group. How convenient is that?
