Patient Knowledge is Important
Diseases pertaining to ear, nose and throat are very common and often under-treated due to a lack of awareness of the new developments in this specialty. This field has evolved by leaps and bounds in the last two decades. With the advent of better understanding and new technologies, now the patients have a cure for the otherwise thought of untreatable diseases like sinus diseases, nerve deafness ( by birth or acquired later in life) etc.
Freqently Asked Questions
- This problem can be one of many; you may have developed a chronic external ear infection, or there may be a perforation in your ear. The perforation can be closed by a proprietary technique called interlay tympanoplasty. If a mastoidectomy has been performed, you may have an open cavity which can be repaired by our proprietary technique, posterior canal reconstruction.
- There are many conditions which the lay persons and GP's often tend to group under the heading of "sinus disease." You may be suffering from either or all of these problems: a deviated septum (the central partition between the nostrils), allergies, enlarged turbinates, allergic polyps, or chronic sinusitis. Sometimes, even enlarged adenoids can persist in adulthood and cause obstruction to nasal breathing. Have you been assessed for allergies? Has a CT scan been performed to analyse sinus disease? Correct recognition of the problem is a pre-requisite for effective treatment, and this is the pitfall that most failures fall victim to. For the most part, if correctly recognized and treated, a beneficial result may be expected.
