Ear, nose, throat: Ent stands for ears, nose and throat. Ent is one of the specialties that does surgery on the head and neck, but there are other structures in the head and neck as well, including the brain(neurosurgery), the spine, the eyes, and the mouth, etc. So there really multiple specialties that do surgery in the region of the head and neck. Thank you for your question.
