ENT & Surgery

ENT, or Otolaryngology surgery is performed on the head or neck area to treat problems of the ears, nose, or throat. It may also be called ENT (ear, nose, and throat) surgery. 

ENT surgery can help fix injuries or defects in these areas that cause problems such as pain, frequent infections, and breathing problems. For example, some children have ENT surgery to treat ear infections that keep coming back. ENT surgery may also be necessary to remove tumors (abnormal growths). 

St Theresas Hospital is a full range of medical and surgical services for people with problems of the ear, nose, sinus, head and neck. Our otolaryngology (ENT)/head and neck surgeons perform hundreds of more common procedures, such as removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), repair of eardrum (tympanic membrane) perforations and sinus surgery. And they do highly complex surgeries, such as endoscopy for pituitary tumors, robotic surgery for throat cancer and microsurgery for acoustic neuroma tumors.

Diseases & Conditions

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo — the sudden sensation that you're spinning or that the inside of your head is spinning. BPPV causes brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness. It is usually triggered by specific changes in your head's position

Acute Otitis Media (AOM)

Acute otitis media (AOM) is a painful type of ear infection. It occurs when the area behind the eardrum called the middle ear becomes inflamed and infected.

Glue Ear and Grommets

Glue ear is where the empty middle part of the ear canal fills up with fluid. This can cause temporary hearing loss. It usually clears up within 3 months, but see a GP about any hearing problems. A grommet is a small tube that's placed in your child's ear during surgery. It drains fluid away and keeps the eardrum open. The grommet should fall out naturally within 6 to 12 months as your child's ear gets better.

Dizziness

Dizziness is a term used to describe a range of sensations, such as feeling faint, woozy, weak or unsteady. Dizziness that creates the false sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving is called vertigo. Dizziness is one of the more common reasons adults visit their doctors. Frequent dizzy spells or constant dizziness can significantly affect your life

Dysphagia

Dysphagia is difficulty swallowing — taking more time and effort to move food or liquid from your mouth to your stomach. Dysphagia can be painful. In some cases, swallowing is impossible. Occasional difficulty swallowing, such as when you eat too fast or don't chew your food well enough, usually isn't cause for concern

Gastric Reflux

Acute otitis media (AOM) is a painful type of ear infection. It occurs when the area behind the eardrum called the middGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus). This backwash (acid reflux) can irritate the lining of your esophagus.

Nosebleeds

Several things can trigger a nosebleed. The most common cause is dry air, either from having the heat on in winter or being in a hot, low-humidity climate. Picking your nose, Blowing your nose too hard often, Injuries caused by a fall or getting hit in your nose, Side effects of medication, like blood thinners, Allergies

Sinus Problems

Sinus Infection (Sinusitis) is an inflammation of the sinuses that can cause them to get blocked and filled with fluid. It is usually caused by cold or allergies. An infection could result from the blockage. The sinuses are four paired cavities (spaces) in the head. They are connected by narrow channels. The sinuses make thin mucus that drains out of the channels of the nose.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you might have sleep apnea.

Snoring

Snoring is the hoarse or harsh sound that occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate as you breathe. Nearly everyone snores now and then, but for some people it can be a chronic problem. Sometimes it may also indicate a serious health condition.

Tonsils & Adenoid Problems

Tonsils and adenoids are part of the immune system and help protect the body from disease. They “sample” bacteria and viruses that enter through the mouth or nose. Unfortunately, sometimes they can get infected or cause problems by being too large.
