Surgeries Performed at the Hospital

  • Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy (ton-sih-LEK-tuh-me) is the surgical removal of the tonsils, two oval-shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side.A tonsillectomy was once a common procedure to treat infection and inflammation of the tonsils (tonsillitis). Today, a tonsillectomy is usually performed for sleep-disordered breathing but may still be a treatment when tonsillitis occurs frequently or doesn’t respond to other treatments.

  •  Adenotonsillectomy

Tonsils and adenoids are lumps of tissue (similar to the ‘glands’ that are in the neck and other parts of the body). Tonsils and adenoids are usually larger in children but tend to shrink to adult proportions by the age of 8 to 12 years.

  • Septoplasty

Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that’s done to fix a deviated nasal septum. A deviated septum occurs when the cartilage that separates your nostrils is out of position. This can cause breathing problems, nosebleeds, and pain.The main goal of septoplasty is to correct the alignment of your septum in order to improve airflow through your nose.Septoplasty is typically an outpatient procedure and can be done under either local or general anesthesia.

  • Direct Laryngoscopy

Direct laryngoscopy is the use of the laryngoscope to visualise the vocal cords (larynx) under direct vision, usually to facilitate endotracheal intubation.

  • As described by Richard Levitan, the procedure involves 4 key steps:
    (1) Positioning and preparation
    (2) epiglottoscopy (identification of the epiglottis)
    (3) laryngeal exposure
    (4) delivery of the tube
  •  Myringoplasty

Myringoplasty is the closure of the perforation of pars tensa of the tympanic membrane. When myringoplasty is combined with ossicular reconstruction, it is calledtympanoplasty. The operation is performed with the patient supine and face turned to one side. The graft material most commonly used for the surgery is temporalis fascia. The tragal cartilage and tragal perichondrium are also used as the graft by some surgeons.Myringoplasty restores hearing loss in certain cases of tinnitus. The chances of re-infection and persistent discharge is less after surgery. Myringoplasty should not be performed if there is active discharge from the middle ear, or if the patient has uncontrolled nasal allergy, or when the other ear is dead and in children less than 3 years of age. Myringoplasty is often done under general anaesthesia, but it can be done under local anaesthesia also.

  • Microlaryngeal surgery

Surgery for voice problems is fortunately quite uncommon; most voice disorders can be treated with medications or voice therapy. However, there are certain conditions in which operative measures are necessary. Some benign vocal fold lesions such as cysts or polyps may not respond to more conservative treatment and will need surgery. Surgery is also needed to biopsy or to treat lesions on the larynx that are suspicious for laryngeal cancer.

  •  Mastoid surgery

A mastoidectomy is a surgical procedure that removes diseased mastoid air cells. These cells sit behind your ear in a hollow space in your skull. The diseased cells are often the result of an ear infection that has spread into your skull. The infection sometimes spreads to the temporal bone.

  •  Hemithyroid

A hemithyroidectomy is the removal of one of the lobes (and part of the isthmus) of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is situated in the lower part of the front of the neck

  •  FESS

FESS ( Functional And Endoscopic Sinus Surgery), consists of a surgical intervention aimed at treating some sino-nasal disease: mainly chronic sinusitis and polyps . The goal of the intervention of FESS normally consists in releasing the drainage pathways of the sinuses, widening the hosts and restoring the physiological ventilation.
