Operative otolaryngology

Our doctors have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform even the most advanced procedures, in order to provide our patients with the best possible medical care. The foundation of our methodology is an individual approach for every patient, taking into account the expectations and priorities of the patient when considering various options for surgical intervention. This is important for any kind of medical treatment, but especially true for surgery.

Operative otolaryngology at GMS Hospital

The operative otolaryngology department (center) at GMS Hospital specializes in the surgical treatment of congenital and acquired disorders of the ear, nose and throat. Most of the operations are performed using modern endoscopic and electrosurgical equipment. We also make extensive use of special high-tech instruments for microsurgical (minimally-invasive) interventions at the base of the skull or in the orbital area, which, used in conjunction with radio wave, cold plasma, and laser equipment, allows us to successfully perform highly complicated operations.

Operative otolaryngology

The use of minimally-invasive techniques has the following benefits:

  • reduced surgical trauma;
  • reduced postoperative pain;
  • the absence of early and later post-operative complications, including atrophic processes and scarring;
  • low risk of bleeding;
  • reduced inpatient time (usually less than 24 hours);
  • fast recovery time.

At GMS Hospital, operations on the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are performed using a modern endoscopic complex equipped with highly visualized optics. Ear microsurgery is done using a premium-class surgical ENT microscope. The highly advanced equipment at the operative otolaryngology center allows our surgeons to carry out even the most delicate and complex interventions safely and successfully.

What we treat

The specialists at our center perform nearly all types of ENT operations, focusing on three areas:

1. Surgical treatment of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses:

  • Interventions on the nasal concha:
    • radio wave cauterization (reduction) of the lower turbinates (vasotomy / conchotomy);
    • shaveric submucous vasotomy / conchotomy of the inferior nasal concha;
    • laser vasotomy / conchotomy.
  • Interventions on the nasal septum:
    • open septoplasty;
    • endoscopic septoplasty (of various degrees of complexity);
    • closing perforations of the septum.
  • Interventions on the paranasal sinuses:
    • endoscopic sinusotomy of the maxillary sinus and cells of the ethmoid labyrinth (gaimorotomidotomy);
    • extended endoscopic sinusotomy, with opening of the frontal sinus ostium, of all cells of the ethmoid labyrinth and the sphenoid sinus (Draf Type II frontal sinusotomy);
    • removal of foreign bodies from the maxillary (maxillary sinuses) after dental procedures;
    • surgical treatment of odontogenic sinusitis (due to inflammation of the teeth of the upper jaw);
    • surgical removal of benign and malignant neoplasms of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
  • Interventions for repeated nosebleeds:
    • cauterization and ligation (clipping) of the pterygobal palatine artery;
    • cauterization of the anterior and posterior ethmoid arteries.
  • Interventions on tear ducts:
    • endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy;
    • recurrent dacryocystorhinostomy.
  • Reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty:
    • repositioning of nasal bones after a fracture;
    • open rhinoplasty;
    • closed rhinoplasty;
    • repeated rhinoplasty.
  • Interventions on the nasopharynx and the auditory tube:
    • endoscopic adenotomy;
    • endoscopic removal of Tornwald cysts;
    • endoscopic removal of benign and malignant tumors of the nasopharynx;
    • endoscopic removal of choanal atresia;
    • endoscopic dilation of the auditory tubes using an inflatable balloon.

2. Surgical treatment of diseases and pathologies of the larynx and pharynx:

  • removal of benign lesions;
  • standard tonsillectomy with a curette;
  • coblation tonsillotomy.

3. Surgical treatment of snoring:

  • laser cutting of the lower turbinate;
  • laser uvuloplasty;
  • laser uvulopaloplasty;
  • cutting tonsils with a laser (laser tonsillotomy).

The Center for Operative Otolaryngology is located at 45 Kalanchevskaya Street, Moscow. The clinic has a modern operating unit with equipped operating rooms, an intensive care unit and a hospital with comfortable wards.

When you should contact us

Sign up for a consultation with an otolaryngologist if you have the following symptoms: uncomfortable nasal breathing, persistent nasal congestion, prolonged rhinitis or cough, problems sleeping or with your sense of smell and/or hearing, frequent headaches, and/or a persistent, heavy sensation in the facial area.

The following are indications for surgery:

  • chronic nasal congestion;
  • hypertrophy of the adenoid tonsil and related issues that are not amenable to conservative treatment;
  • curvature of the nasal septum, causing difficulty in nasal breathing;
  • hypertrophy of the lower turbinates;
  • dependence on drops, not amenable to conservative treatment;
  • polyps of the nasal cavity, odontogenic cysts or inflammation of the paranasal sinuses;
  • chronic sinusitis;
  • repeated nosebleeds;
  • snoring and respiratory arrest in sleep;
  • benign neoplasms of the oropharynx and vocal cords;
  • chronic exudative otitis media;
  • frequent recurrent streptococcal tonsillitis (tonsillitis).

If you notice any of the above problems, we suggest you contact our specialists. The early diagnosis of illnesses and growths in the ENT organs, and timely surgical treatment, will ensure your fastest possible recovery and the restoration of full health. Depending on the scope of the intervention, ENT operations are performed with either local or general anesthesia. Doctors develop individual surgical plans for each patient, after a comprehensive evaluation.

Operative otolaryngology

Why an operation is necessary

Surgical treatments for ENT disorders are used when non-surgical methods prove ineffective, or as a standalone method of treating illnesses of the ear, nose and throat involving changes to the tissue structure of organs or associated with congenital growth defects.

The use of modern microsurgery in the field of otolaryngology enables the specialists of GMS to resolve many problems our patients may have with ENT pathologies and substantially improve their quality of life. For example, the proper diagnosis of sleep apnea, followed by laser surgery, allows patients to restore normal, healthy sleeping patterns.

Preparation, diagnostics

For a comprehensive diagnosis of ENT disorders, we use the most advanced equipment and methods:

  • rhinoscopy;
  • laryngoscopy;
  • electronystagmography;
  • otoscopy;
  • audiometry;
  • laboratory tests;
  • computer tomography and MRI.

You can complete a comprehensive preoperative examination with us in one day. Our equipment in many cases allows us to perform microsurgical interventions even during an endoscopic examination.

Rehabilitation in our facility

When developing a treatment plan, the otolaryngologists at GMS Hospital rely on a comprehensive approach where diagnosis, surgical intervention, and rehabilitation take place at one clinic. By using a combination of endoscopic, laser, and radio wave surgical equipment, our doctors are able to reduce the time patients spend in the hospital to less than one day, and in the majority of cases, to just a few hours.

Comprehensive rehabilitation after ENT surgery generally includes steps aimed at reducing swelling, elimination of hemorrhaging, and the fastest possible healing. When putting together a rehabilitation program, specialists take into account many factors - the patient’s age, the general condition of health, the presence of concomitant diseases, lifestyle, and so forth. For more detailed information on surgical interventions and postoperative recovery times, contact GMS Hospital for a consultation with an otolaryngologist.
