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.
