Procedures We Specialise In

Besides general ENT conditions, underneath are more complicated / advanced conditions or surgeries that I specialise in.

Skull Base Surgery

Surgical removal of tumours or lesions at the floor of the skull. Anterior lesions approached via the nose, lateral lesions   approached via the ear or neck.

Otology

Management of complicated ear cases, like CSF leaks, tumours, large cholesteatomas, ossiculoplasty, stapedotomy and revision surgery.

Salivary Gland Surgery

Surgical management of diseases (stones, tumours) of the parotid, submandibular, sublingual or minor salivary glands.

Head and Neck Surgery

Management of tumours of the nasopharynx, mouth, oropharynx, larynx/ trachea, hypopharynx, neck and thyroid.

Cochlear Implants

Surgical implantation of a small electronic device to restore hearing in a profoundly deaf person.

Facial Nerve Surgery

Exploration of nerve, decompression, repair of facial nerve (anastomosis, grafting or facial-hypoglossis anastomosis).

Paediatric Sinus Surgery (FESS)

Surgery for choanal atresia, sinusitis, congenital abnormalities, tumours like juvenile angiofibroma.

Complicated Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS)

Revision surgery, frontal sinus drill out, CSF leaks, tumours, orbital decompression etc.

Laryngoplasty

Vocal cord medialization for vocal cord palsy, vocal cord lateralisation, lowering or increasing the pitch (tone) of the voice.

Swallowing Disorders

Management of hypo pharyngeal webs or Zenker diverticulum (CO2 laser, Coblation or external approach)

Glomus Tumor

Glomus tumors or paragangliomas, are slow growing, highly vascular (usually benign) tumors in the major blood vessels or nerves of the neck, middle ear or skull base

Management of Upper Airway Problems

Stridor or airway obstruction from laryngeal or tracheal stenosis, papillomas, tracheomalacia, tracheo-esophageal fistula or tumours.
