OUR EAR, NOSE AND THROAT DEPARTMENT

Welcome to our Ear, Nose and Throat Department where our well-trained experts are a breath of fresh air for you. We have the latest medical equipment and a team of highly-trained personnel, and provide thorough ear, nose and throat examinations, nasal endoscopic and laryngoscopic examinations, helping you breathe, eat and sleep easily again.

Treatments include microscopic examination of ears and any treatment required such as suction clearance of wax/debris, wick insertion, foreign body removal, myringotomy insertion for adults (slit in the ear drum) with or without grommets (ventilation tubes for glue ears) and biopsy of lesions. We also provide endoscopic examination of nasal cavities, sinuses, post nasal space and larynx in addition to any procedures required such as biopsy of any lesions, foreign body removal, insertion of nasal packs (anterior/posterior) for epistaxis (nose bleed) or chemical cautery. Panendoscopycan also be performed, with or without biopsies which includes endoscopic examination of upper aero digestive system in suspected malignant tumor cases.
