Otorhinolaryngologist Day in Russia Date in the current year: September 29, 2017

Otorhinolaryngologist Day in Russia Otorhinolaryngologist Day is an unofficial professional holiday celebrated in Russia on September 29. It is dedicated to physicians who deal with diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the ear, nose, throat and related structures of the neck and head.

Otorhinolaryngology is a sub-specialty within medicine. Its name can be literally translated as “study of the ear, nose and throat”. These three organs are connected by the nasopharynx and the Eustachian tube, so disease of one of the organs may lead to disease of another. That’s why conditions of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT) are treated by special doctors known as otorhinolaryngologists, otolaryngologists, or ENT doctors.

Otorhinolaryngologists treat diseases of the ear, nose, throat, and base of the skull. There are several sub-specialties within otorhinolaryngology, including head and neck oncologic surgery, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, otology, neurotology, rhinology and sinus surgery, laryngology and voice disorders, pediatric otorhinolaryngology, and sleep medicine.

Otorhinolaryngologist Day in Russia is celebrated in late September because this is the time when the flow of patients to ENT doctors starts to increase because of the increase in upper respiratory tract infections caused by cold weather.
