Treating ear, nose and throat conditions

Our skilled consultants diagnose and treat many health conditions related to the ear, nose and throat

Overview

When you come for an appointment with one of our highly skilled ear, nose and throat consultants you'll start with a detailed consultation to address any concerns or symptoms you might have.

And if you need surgery, our world-class ENT surgeons can offer a range of treatments, including procedures that deal with the soft tissues of the head and neck region, including the thyroid and salivary glands.

Expertise

We have the expertise needed to carry out advanced treatments for a range of ear, nose and throat conditions.

  • Tonsil removal

    Need to know

    Tonsils are part of the immune system and help to protect the body against illness and bacteria. However, if you suffer from recurrent infections, persistent discomfort, sleep apnoea or other associated complaints, tonsil removal may be recommended.

  • Adenoid and tonsil removal

    Need to know

    If your child suffers from acute or chronic tonsillitis or other symptoms including sleep apnoea or glue ear, your consultant may recommend having your child's adenoids and tonsils removed. This combined procedure is commonly performed by our paediatric ear, nose and throat surgeons.

  • Adenoid removal

    Need to know

    Adenoids are part of the immune system in children. They begin to shrink around the age of seven and usually disappear by adulthood. Adenoids can become inflamed due to frequent infections or allergies. They can cause uncomfortable symptoms for your child, such as breathing problems or ear...

  • Ear pinning surgery

    Need to know

    Also called pinnaplasty and otoplasty, ear pinning surgery is often carried out on adults, children and teenagers. ​Your ear is made up of folded cartilage, which is covered by thin skin. If you have prominent ears, you have a lack of these cartilage folds in your ear.​

  • Frenectomy

    Need to know

    Frenulums in the mouth are thin bands of tissue, usually at the underside of the tongue, which can sometimes make it difficult for your child to nurse, eat or speak properly. A quick procedure can release or remove this tissue.

  • Grommets for glue ear

    Need to know

    Glue ear is a build-up of fluid behind the eardrum. This can make it hard to hear. It usually clears on its own but if it doesn't, it can impact your child’s speech development or be a sign of more serious disease in adults. Grommets are tiny tubes that allow air to circulate in the middle ear.

  • Perforated eardrum repair

    Need to know

    A perforated eardrum is usually caused by infection. It can also be caused by sudden changes in air pressure, trauma, or sudden very loud noises. Usually it will heal on its own but if it won't, you may need surgery. The main reasons for surgery are repeated infections or hearing loss.
