Ear, Nose, and Throat procedures are medical procedures dealing with surgical treatment of injuries, deformation and disease in the ear, nose, throat, head and areas of the neck. It is a specialized treatment procedure that only focuses on the aforementioned areas of the body. Patients who require surgery to correct anatomical defects can go for ENT procedures to eliminate the problems from the root instead of treating them again and again through non-surgical processes. A lot of patients might be skeptical about going for a surgery to treat deformities but ENT procedures are not very complicated and usually require patients to stay a couple of days at max at the medical facility. Most often, children need these ENT procedures in comparison to adults and pediatric surgeons and pediatric rained anesthesiologists need to be consulted if your child is undergoing the surgical procedure.
The best part about going for an ENT procedure oversees in a medical tourism program is the time and customized care patients receive that helps them regain their health and strength back after a surgical procedure. Because most ENT procedures require the patients to spend no more than a couple of days in the medical facility, the extra time can be utilized to tour and take in experiences of the destination to recover, rejuvenate and get back on your feet with complete confidence. Moreover, the presence of an experienced Otolaryngologist increases the chances of making a full recovery. Let’s take a look at some of the ENT procedures;
is a process where a tiny incision is made in the eardrum to release excessive build-up of fluids, or to drain pus from the ear. A tympanostomy tube is inserted to keep the middle ear aerated and to prevent rebuilding of fluids. The procedure requires a couple of days although the incision heals itself in a couple of weeks.
is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to enlarge nasal drainage pathways to improve sinus ventilation using nasal endoscopes. The procedure is best suited for patients who want to treat infectious and inflammatory sinus diseases including nasal polyps, nasal cancer, decompression of eye sockets, and chronic rhinosinusitis. The entire procedure can be done with in less than 5 hours under local anesthesia and patients seldom feel any discomfort during or after the surgery.
is a surgical procedure to remove the palatine tonsils from the top of the patient’s throat. Children require this surgery more often than adults although adults require it too to treat chronic or recurring bacterial tonsillitis, bothersome snoring, sleep apnea, bronchial problems or respiratory problems, bleeding on the tonsils or in some cases cancer.
is the surgical procedure used for the reconstruction of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) or the reconstruction of small bones of the middle ear (ossicles). The surgery can be performed through incision also known as endaural approach, or through ear canal also known as transcanal approach. Both these types of surgery require a maximum of 3-4 hours to completely perform and is done under general anesthesia.
is a surgical procedure that completely removes diseased mastoid air cells (mastoid being a part of your skull located behind the ears). There are 5 different types of Mastoidectomy including Radical Mastoidectomy, Canal Wall Down Mastoidectomy, Canal Wall Up Mastoidectomy, Cortical Mastoidectomy, and Modified Radical Mastoidectomy. Mastoidectomy can be used to treat chronic infection of the ear which is a skin cyst that can grow to cause serious complications such as abscess in brain, dizziness or vertigo, deafness, loss of balance and orientation, inflammation of ear and ongoing ear drainage.
is a procedure performed through a special surgical instrument known as laryngoscope, which is placed via the mouth to expose the vocal folds. The vocal folds are examined in detail using a microscope and cysts, polyps, papilloma, nodules or cancer are removed using this procedure. The procedure doesn’t require any external incision and doesn’t last more than 48 hours. The procedure is not only safe and effective, it is also quick, and cost-effective.
also known as Kashima operation is a procedure performed to treat respiratory issues caused by vocal cord paralysis. The entire procedure is short and quick to perform and require minimum invasiveness to get ultimate results such as good voice quality and efficient swallowing. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and doesn’t require the patient to stay in the medical facility for long.
