An ENT surgeon is a doctor who specializes in the surgical treatment of diseases and pathological conditions of the ear, nose and throat, and related structures of the head and neck.
The field of surgical otolaryngology encompasses a wide range of operations not restricted to the ear, nose and throat. It also includes plastic and reconstructive surgery on the facial skeletal structures, removal of neoplasms occurring in the head and neck area, and emergency interventions to remove foreign bodies from the respiratory tract. At GMS Hospital we have a team of highly skilled otolaryngologists with extensive experience and skills acquired during internships at leading medical centers in the USA, Europe and Israel. They have comprehensive knowledge of classical and modern surgical methods for treating pathologies of the upper respiratory tract.
According to statistics, ENT pathologies are some of the most common health ailments. Surgical treatment is performed if conservative therapy proves ineffective, or as an independent method of treatment for many chronic acquired and congenital pathologies of the upper respiratory tract and adjacent head and neck structures.
Sign up for a consultation with an otolaryngologist if you experience any of the following symptoms or conditions:
The otolaryngologist is the specialist to contact for curing chronic ear infections, removing polyps in the nasal cavity, or correcting a curved nasal septum. They also treat nighttime breathing issues such as sleep apnea.
ENT surgeons at GMS Hospital successfully treat various pathologies of the ear, nose, and throat, as well as diseases and disorders of other organs and systems that may affect the health of the ear, nose and throat, such as:
Surgical procedures to treat diseases of the ear, nose and throat at GMS Hospital are performed by a team of experienced doctors, using modern approaches and guided by the fundamental concepts of evidence-based medicine. At the Center of Operative Otolaryngology we use gentle, minimally-invasive methods and techniques so that the patient can return to an active and healthy life as quickly as possible.
The initial consultation with an otolaryngologist begins with a discussion of the patient’s complaints. The doctor will examine the patient using various instruments such as a headlamp illuminator, an otoscope for examining the ears, and flexible and rigid endoscopes for examining the nasal passages. During an endoscopic examination, a computer display is provided so that the doctor can provide the patient with a visual understanding of the problem areas. The otolaryngologist also makes a comprehensive assessment of the general state of the ENT organs, identifying any additional problems that may affect the success of the treatment:
Based on the symptoms and their severity, a number of diagnostic tests may be prescribed. For complaints of hearing loss, for example, tympanometry and threshold tone audiometry tests are performed using a special audiometer. To obtain a complete picture of the disease or disorder, an otolaryngologist surgeon may have the patient undergo additional examinations:
No preliminary preparation is required for a consultation with an otolaryngologist. All you need is to make an appointment online or by phone.
The otolaryngologists at GMS perform almost all types of operations, both emergency and elective, on the ENT organs and structures of the head and neck:
Our clinic is equipped with advanced high-tech equipment, enabling our doctors to perform ENT operations quickly and with the best clinical results. The use of gentle microsurgical techniques significantly reduces surgical trauma and postoperative recovery. All surgical interventions and postoperative therapies are performed in accordance with the highest international standards, either as outpatient procedures or with a one-night stay in our inpatient facility.
Most ENT operations are performed using endoscopic technology. Radio wave and laser surgery are also extensively used, ensuring the best therapeutic results with minimal operating trauma, a short recovery period, minimal postoperative pain, and low risk of complications.
For example, treating chronic sinusitis no longer requires the traumatic procedure of paracentesis (puncture). By using the latest scientific technology in the field of microsurgery, doctors can cure chronic inflammation of the paranasal sinuses without a puncture, using a minimally invasive procedure: endoscopic drainage of the sinus fistula.
Removal of adenoids at GMS Hospital is a quick procedure that will eliminate once and for all the significant problems your child would suffer due to swollen adenoids. Just one hour after the procedure our young patients can drink liquids, after 2 hours they can have ice cream, and after 3 hours they can go home.
Progress in the field of operative otolaryngology is constantly advancing. Our doctors are trained in the latest operative techniques, and can offer patients the most effective options for surgical intervention.
The otolaryngologist will determine whether the illness can be treated conservatively or whether an operation is required. When surgery is necessary, this specialist will personally oversee all the stages of treatment. He or she will conduct all the necessary preoperative measures, perform the operation, and provide support to the patient in the postoperative period. Some interventions require a hospital stay.
The otolaryngologist will draw up an appropriate recovery plan for both in-patient and out-patient procedures. You can sign up at any time online or by phone for a consultation with an otolaryngologist at GMS Hospital.
I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.
I want to thank you all so much for making my stay in hospital so bearable. You are all so professional and dedicated and it was a pleasure to spend time with you all even under those unusual circumstances.
I am now home and being cared for by my family as well as my own doctor so all is as well. Hopefully I will be up and about soon.
Once again, many thanks and suffice to say, I will never forget you and your staff did for me.
Best wishes always.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
