ENT Throat Treatment in Phoenix, AZ

Treatment for disorders of the throat can alleviate symptoms that affect your ability to eat, swallow, talk, and breathe properly. Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh is a board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who uses his years of experience and extensive clinical training to treat a variety of throat disorders for residents of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and the surrounding communities of Arizona.

What Are Throat Conditions?

Dr. Taghizadeh is an ear, nose, and throat doctor who is specially trained to diagnosis and treat disorders of the throat. Prior to coming to our facility, many of our patients turn to their primary medical doctor for treatment but usually, experience little to no relief of their symptoms. Dr. Taghizadeh has an extensive understanding of the throat’s anatomy and the comprehensive knowledge needed to provide precise, effective, and long-lasting treatments for all throat conditions.

Benefits of Treatment for Throat Conditions

Many symptoms of throat disorders are an indication of a more complex and serious problem that affects some aspect of the throat’s structure. Having your throat condition diagnosed and treated by an ENT specialist such as Dr. Taghizadeh can provide permanent relief from the following symptoms:

  • Voice disorders that interfere with your ability to communicate
  • Difficulty or inability to swallow
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Digestive problems, such as heartburn and acid reflux
  • Difficulty eating

What Are the Different Throat Treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC?

At Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, we treat throat disorders by removing any growths, such as cysts, or abnormalities that interfere with your ability to eat, swallow, drink, breathe, and communicate effectively. Dr. Taghizadeh is a well-trained and highly skilled ENT specialist who provides the following throat treatments:


The adenoid is a gland that is located at the back of the throat, and this gland plays a vital role in the immune system’s ability to fight off infectious microorganisms. In some instances, the adenoid can become enlarged and obstruct a person’s airways, in which case an adenoidectomy is required. An adenoidectomy is an invasive surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia where the adenoid gland is removed through the mouth. Removing an enlarged adenoid gland can cut down on recurrent throat and upper respiratory infections and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

Cyst Removal

A cyst is a benign mass of tissue that can appear on the face, arms, legs, and practically anywhere throughout the body. Cysts can also be located on the vocal cords, tonsils, and other areas of the throat. If a cyst becomes inflamed and fills with fluid, Dr. Taghizadeh may drain and compress it to provide relief. Because throat cysts are located in such a sensitive area and can affect breathing and swallowing, it’s important to seek immediate attention when one appears. Cyst removal is the most common surgical procedure Dr. Taghizadeh uses to remove cysts that limit essential functions of the throat while reducing scarring and other damage.


The parotid is a large salivary gland that’s positioned between the cheeks and jaw and extends to the front of the ear. Persistent infections and swelling can cause abnormal masses and tumors to develop in the parotid, making surgical removal of the gland the only possible form of treatment. A parotidectomy is a surgical procedure where one or all parts of the parotid gland are removed. Patients can receive a partial or total parotidectomy depending on the severity of their condition. A partial parotidectomy involves removal of the superficial lobe, which makes up 25 percent of the parotid gland. A complete parotidectomy involves removal of both lobes, surrounding tissues, and a portion of the facial nerve.


A tonsillectomy involves the surgical removal of the tonsils from the throat. Tonsillectomy is usually recommended for people who suffer from chronic and recurring bouts of tonsillitis infections and sore throats, but Dr. Taghizadeh also uses this surgical procedure to treat patients who suffer from sleep apnea.

Dr. Taghizadeh is a board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon known for his honesty, expertise, and exemplary patient care. His in-depth knowledge and skills, along with the professionalism of his staff, are the reasons why Dr. Taghizadeh and Arizona Facial Plastics, PC are highly recommended among people from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
