Modern ENT treatment:
With the advancement of modern equipment and technology along with professional skill today we have new vistas of ENT treatment.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (ESS)
Now a day we look after every nook and corner of our body with sophisticated Endoscopic technique. Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) not only helps in remove the disease radically, it also tries to revert normal physiology of nose and paranasal sinus like ventilation, respiration, humidification etc. ESS not only taking care of nose and PNS but it also applied extensively, for example in DCR, CSF Rhinorrohea, Orbital Heamatoma, Pituitary tumour and other Anterior skull base lesions.
Though history of micro-ear surgery too old we still far lag behind its application. It is not only limited to repair of tympanic membrane and mastoid exploration but also try to improvement of hearing by ossiculoplasty. Cochlear implant, Middle ear implant for hearing disable and Lateral Skull base Surgery for Acoustic Neuroma, GlomusJugulareetc are the extensive dimension of modern micro ear surgery.
Head and Neck Surgery
Now a day it categorized as subspecialty of ENT. Including Thyroid surgery all laryngeal and pharyngeal surgery are performed by head and neck surgeons. With newer researches and technique, disease removal not only issue today but they also try to reconstruct the defect and in this way the patient have not only lesser mortality but also morbidity. Organ preservation along with radical cure of disease another motto.
Micro-laryngeal Surgery and Phonosurgery
Voice is the strongest media of ex
pression. With increasing demands of professional voice, voice care is now more challenging for ENT surgeon and Speech therapist. Here is great rule of Micro-laryngeal surgery and Phonosurgery. It not only helps in retain the voice but also improvement of quality of voice.
We are regularly performing Co Ablition assisted adnoidectomy, tonsilectomy, inferior terbinectomy, obstructive sleep apnea surgery.

EARS & BALANCE DISORDER
The ability to maintain balance is an automatic body function that we take for granted until illness or injury occurs. We maintain our balance with the coordination of our eyes, our sense of touch, and our vestibular system, located in the inner ear.
The vestibular system is comprised of two organs, known as otolithic organs and three semicircular canals next to the ears. The canals are fluid-filled chambers that are lined with hair cells containing nerve sensors.
When we move, the movement of fluid in the canals stimulates these hair cells. A signal is then transmitted to the brain where it is interpreted as movement. The brain also receives information from the eyes and the sense of touch. All three parts of the balance system must communicate the same information to the brain in order to maintain good balance. If one of these systems reports conflicting information to the brain, the result may be dizziness .
Sounds are formed any time an object creates vibrations. These vibrations travel through the air, just as ripples travel across water. Hearing begins when the vibrations reach the outer ear, which functions as a funnel, collecting these sound vibrations and directing them toward the eardrum.
As sound vibrations are picked up by the ear drum, they are transferred to a series of three tiny bones in the middle ear. These bones further amplify the vibrations of the eardrum, and transfer them to a sensory organ in the inner ear, called the cochlea. The inside of the cochlea is filled with fluid, and lined with tens of thousands of tiny hair cells. As vibrations pass through the fluid, it causes movement of these hair cells. This motion causes electrical signals to be sent along a specialized nerve, which are then processed into the sounds we hear.
FACIAL & PLASTIC SURGERY
Rhinoplasty: Plastic surgery of the nose is one of the most gratifying and rewarding surgeries for patients. Changing the appearance of the nose involves recontouring the cartilage and bone of the nose while maintaining or improving the breathing function of the nose. Both men and women who have attained full growth are candidates for this procedure. Generally, there is a preoperative consultation that involves a discussion on desired changes, photographs, and computer imaging showing likely results. The procedure can be performed along with internal nasal surgery to improve the breathing function of the nose. Rhinoplasty is usually performed as outpatient surgery and most patients can return to their daily activities within one week and exercise within four weeks
NOSE, SINUS & ALLERGY
Those people suffering from allergy, daily life can be a struggle. Allergy symptoms range from mild annoyances, to severe and life-threatening reactions. Allergy sufferers may even experience symptoms, such as frequent colds, sinus infections, and skin rashes, without realizing that the symptoms are caused by allergies. In addition to the annoyance and discomfort associated with allergy symptoms, many sufferers find that they are forced to avoid situations where their allergies may be triggered.
Picture missing your daughter's first base hit. Or imagine your child being unable to go fishing with grandparents. Many suffers must withdraw from former hobbies, or avoid friends and family, with the onset of allergies. Fortunately, treatment methods are available which can alleviate allergies, or put them in long-term remission. If allergies affect you, or someone you love, speak with your healthcare provider today, to learn more about the various treatment methods.
OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA SYNDROME
Sleep apnea is a potentially serious disorder, in which breathing during sleep repeatedly becomes too shallow, or stops altogether. The most common type of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea, and occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax during sleep. When the muscles relax, the airway narrows or closes, and breathing momentarily stops. If you think you might have sleep apnea, talk to your doctor immediately.
