  • Highly qualified and skilful surgeons with advanced technology instruments make this department a valuable part of the hospital.

  • Micro- Ear Surgery and Cochlear Implant Surgery
  • Audiology ( Hearing Assesment & Hearing Aids.)
  • Vertigo Clinic

    Vertigo

    The sensation of motion when no motion is occurring relative to earth’s gravity.• Causes:- Inner Ear (75%), Central Nervous System (25%), Psychological rarely,
    • Other words used:- Dizziness, Light headedness, Unsteadiness,
    • Vertigo is a syndrome with many variable causes.
    • Appropriate treatment requires definitive diagnosis.
    • Clinical history and necessary tests are required to ensure correct diagnosis.

    Vertigo Diagnosis

    Correct treatment depends upon correct diagnosis
    • Video Nystagmography (VNG):-
    Eyes are the windows to the vestibular system. Movements of eyes (Nystagm) in different conditions and automatic analysis of eyes movements leads to correct diagnosis.
    • Video Head Impulse test (VHIT):-
    The judgment is made on comparison of eye movement to the head movements.
    • Vemp (Vestibular Evokes Myogenic Potential):-
    Vestibular system is assessed based on response of neck muscle to the sound.
    • Electrocochleography (EcochG):-
    Inner Ear electrical activity is assessed very accurately and judgment is made according to action potential work patterns.

MICRO- EAR SURGERY

The delicate parts of ear are corrected using MICROSCOPE and MICRO INSTRUMENTS in this surgeries.

EAR DRUM PERFORATION

Recurrent eardrum infection leads to eardrum perforation.
The surgical repair of eardrum and ossicles is known as TYMPANOPLASTY.

MIDDLE EAR CHOLESTEATOMA

Recurrent ingression of skin into middle ear with erosion of middle ear bone leads to cholesteatoma. The surgery for removing choleateatoma and reconstruction is known as MASTOIDECTOMY.

Glue Ear

Collection of mucus secretion behind the eardrum is known as glue ear.
Through small incision in eardrum the mucus is aspirated and a ventilation tube is placed across the drum , this procedure is known as Myringotomy with Grommet insertion.

3rd Bone Fixation

Otosclerosis leads to 3rd oscicular fixation with deafness.
In stepedotomy with piston insertion is required to overcome the fixation of 3rd bone.

COCHLEAR IMPLANT SURGERY

The Cochlear Implant is the device that bypasses the hearing organ (cochlea) and sends the sound impulses directly to the hearing nerve.
This is the treatment of choice for bilateral severe to profound hearing loss.
This is boon for deaf and mute infants and children.

PARTS

Internal device: The implant is fitted inside the ear through operation.
External device: it is worn behind the ear to catch the sound impulses.

Now the device and opereation is free of cost in central government scheme.

AUDIOLOGY ( Hearing tests and hearing aids)

DEAFNESS:- IMPAIRED HEARING
• Hearing is the special sense gifted by the God to human being.
• Deafness is due to some problem in the ear.
• It can be due to

External Ear - Wax, fungus, foreign body tumor.
Middle Ear – Infection, Perforated Eardrum.
Inner Ear – Due to age, Tumor, ototoxic drugs.

CORRECT DIAGNOSIS LEADS TO CORRECT TREATMENT.

1. PURE TONE AUDIOMERY:
- A very basic test to know cause and severity of deafness.

2. Impedance Audiometry:
- A specific test to know the middle ear pathology.

3. Behavioural Audiometry:
- For subjective hearing assessment in children.

4. OAE:
- Screening test of hearing for infants and children.

5. BERA:
- Diagnostic Test of hearing for infants and children.

6. ASSR:
- For identification of hearing threshold in children.

VERTIGO CLINIC

• Other words used:- Dizziness, Light headedness, Unsteadiness,
• Vertigo is a syndrome with many variable causes.

CORRECT TREATMENT DEPENDS UPON CORRECT DIAGNOSIS

Video Nystagmography (VNG)

Eyes are the windows to the vestibular system. Movements of eyes (Nystagmus) in different conditions and automatic analysis of eyes movements leads to correct diagnosis.

Video Head Impulse test (VHIT)

The judgment is made on comparison of eye movement to the head movements.

VEMP: (Vestibular Evokes Myogenic Potential)

Vestibular system is assessed based on response of neck muscle to the sound.

Cochlear Implant Head

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

ENDOSCOPIC SINUS SUEGERY

Nose and sinuses has function of taking the breath from the environment, humidification of air and passing it to the lungs. It also drains the tears of the eyes.

Endoscopic sinus surgery is required when Nose, Paranasal sinuses or tear draining system are blocked.

• Chronic sinusitis refractory to medical treatment
• Recurrent sinusitis
• Nasal polyposis
• Antrochoanal polyps
• Sinus mucoceles
• Excision of selected tumors
• Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak closure
• Orbital decompression (eg, Graves ophthalmopathy)
• Optic nerve decompression
• Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR)
• Choanal atresia repair
• Foreign body removal
• Epistaxis control

DEVIATED NASAL SEPTUM

CHRONIC SINUSITIS

NASAL POLYPSIS

ALLERGIC RHINITIS

Foreign Body in Nose

Rhinolith

Micro-Laryngeal Surgery
Tonsils &Adenoid Surgery
Sleep Apnoea &Snoring Surgery

Micro-Laryngeal Surgery: (Voice box Surgery)

Voice box has the function of phonation.
Micro-Laryngeal surgery deals with the disorders of the vocal cords.

TONSILLECTOMY , ADENOIDECTOMY, SURGERY FOR SLEEP APNOEA

Tonsillectomy

In case or recurrent infections of tonsils, enlarged tonsils causing difficulty in speaking and swallowing requires surgical removal of tonsils known as TONSILLECTOMY.

ADENOIDECTOMY

The lymphoid tissue behind the nose are known as ADENOIDS.
Hypertrophy of adenoid causes nasal obstruction in children, require surgical removal of adenoids known as ADENOIDECTOMY.
The children with enlarge adenoids have to breathe through their mouth, develops typical face known as ADENOID FACE.

SURGERY FOR SNORING & SLEEP APNOEA

Patients with deviated nasal septum, hypertrophied palate or hypertrophied tongue base develops episodes of cessation of respiration during the sleep due to respiratory obstruction , known as Sleep Apnoea.
Sleep Study is required to diagnose the problem.
Weight loss, CPAP machine or surgery are requied to control the condition.
