Overview & Features

The department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at Lisie Hospital, Ernakulam is comparable with the best in the world. The Out-Patient department functions on all working days and has an adjoining full-fledged procedure room equipped with otologic microscope, nasal endoscopes and a video-laryngoscope to aid in comprehensive and accurate diagnosis. Minor surgical procedures can also be carried out here with the help of the dedicated staff to give prompt relief to the patient.

The OPD also enjoys the support of auxiliary departments providing speech voice and swallowing therapy in addition to audiological assessment and dispensing of digital programmable hearing aids. Voice, Vertigo, Allergy and Headache clinics also function within the OPD.

Inpatient care is provided in private rooms or in separate male and female wards manned by well trained nurses. Daily dressing and ENT procedures for the inpatients are carried out at the attached procedure room.

Two state of art operating rooms in the impressive Theatre complex are allotted to the department and allows for round the clock major elective and emergency operative procedures of the Ear Nose and Throat including phonosurgery and surgery for snoring and sleep apnoea. The Theatre is also equipped with Xenon and LED light sources, technologically advanced cameras and recording systems in addition to the operating microscope, endoscopes, microdebriders and the Coblator.
