Diagnostic Endoscopic Examination of Nasopharynx

This procedure uses a long, thin, flexible tube with a light source to analyse and diagnose conditions of the area where the nose and throat connect.

Excision of External Ear Lesions

A procedure involving the surgical removal of a lump or bump from the external ear, to aid diagnosis and treatment of a condition.

Excision of Lesion of Nasal Septum

The septum is the anatomical structure dividing the nasal cavity into two halves. Lesions may be caused by a range of conditions, including trauma, infection or tumours. Removing the lesion can aid biopsy and improves nasal breathing.

Intranasal Ethmoidectomy

This procedure treats infections in the sinus cavities between the eyes and along the sides of the nose. Surgical tools are used that enter the body through the nose and any infected tissue or bone is removed.

Intranasal Antrostomy

This procedure takes place under general anaesthetic and involves making an opening into a blocked sinus caused by infection. The procedure enables the sinus to drain properly and relieves any pain.

Myringotomy and Grommet

A procedure whereby a tiny cut is made in the ear drum to relieve built up fluid in the middle ear. If thick fluid is present, a tiny plastic tube – a grommet – is placed in the hole to allow air to pass through, drying up any fluid.

Nasendoscopy

An investigative technique where a flexible endoscope is used to look inside the nasal space and also to analyse from above how the palate is working during speech and swallowing.

Operation on Frontal Sinus

This procedure is used on patients with acute or chronic infection of the frontal sinusitis. It can prevent life-threatening complications when the infection is unresponsive to maximal medical treatment.

Nasal Polypectomy

Nasal polyps can arise due to chronic nasal and sinus infection. They are removed to improve nasal breathing. Most of the time they are removed as part of Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

Septoplasty

A quick surgical procedure to straighten the nasal septum – the partition between the two cavities – to improve airflow. The surgery can take place under local or general anaesthetic.

Reduction of Nasal Turbinates

There are usually three sets of turbinate bones in the nose: inferior, middle and superior turbinates. Enlargement of these may cause nasal obstruction. Reduction in the size of the turbinates improves nasal breathing.

Tympanoplasty

A procedure to reconstruct the eardrum or the small bones of the middle ear, the ossicles. If needed, grafts are usually taken from the lobe of the ear or tissue located behind or above the ear.

Dacryocystorhinostomy

Watery eyes can be caused by blocked tear ducts. The procedure is done to unblock the tear duct system and improve the symptoms of watery eye. It is done through the nostrils and no cut on the face is necessary.
