A range of ENT services is available on-site, from minor procedures to incredibly complex surgery.
If you’re concerned about possible hearing loss, a hearing test will be arranged for you with an audiologist. This is carried out on the same day of your appointment*, to save you having to make an additional hospital visit.
*Please review your preferred consultant’s profile to see if they treat your condition and if same day hearing tests / audiology services are offered. Some ear complaints require a hearing test to help with the diagnosis.
Infections in the ear are often treated with eardrops and cleaning out of the ear with specialised equipment and a microscope.
If a build-up of fluid in your ear (glue ear) is causing your hearing loss, grommets may be a good treatment choice. Grommets are small plastic or metal tubes that are inserted into the ear to allow the fluid to drain.
A perforated eardrum often heals without the need for any treatment. If the hole is particularly large or does not close on its own, surgery with a graft may be needed. This is known as a myringoplasty procedure.
If somebody suffers from ear blockage, popping ears or fluid in the ear, Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty can also be very helpful. This is a new technique which some of our surgeons offer and can sometimes be better than grommets. You can check if your surgeon offers this procedure.
Some tonsil problems may require a tonsillectomy (surgical removal of the tonsils).
Long-term or recurring nasal blockage can be treated with Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) and/or Nasal Polypectomy (removal of polyps).
If a deviated septum (the bone and cartilage separating the two nostrils) is causing nasal blockage, a Septoplasty can be carried out to straighten it and restore normal breathing through the nose.
The above examples show only a very small number of treatments available from the ENT Surgeons at BMI The Park Hospital. They can carry out a very wide range of treatments (surgical and non-surgical) to treat and correct many disorders and dysfunctions of the ear, nose and throat.
It’s important to know that treatment is never ‘one size fits all’. Your consultant will always tailor treatment to your specific requirements so that you will receive the best result possible.
