These specialist branches require specialized training. In addition to standard ENT training, our experienced ear, nose, throat and audiology specialists at Acibadem Hospitals have undergone further training. Our hospitals are fully equipped with cutting-edge technology and all ear, nose and throat procedures currently available around the world are successfully performed.

When you arrive at Acıbadem’s Ear, Nose and Throat Clinics you will be examined in an extremely modern, fully equipped room (rigid and flexible endoscope; stroboscope; digital recording system) by highly trained physicians who will ensure that you receive proper treatment. Acıbadem’s ear, nose and throat specialists work closely with other specialists to provide comprehensive care for patients.

The following ear, nose and throat disorders are treated at our clinic:

Otology / Neurotology
The Otology / Neurology Unit carries out the following procedures: tinnitus treatment, dizziness treatment, surgery for disorders of the ear drum and middle ear, otosclerosis surgery, diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss; surgical implantation of cochlear implants also known as bionic ears; rehabilitation with hearing devices, and administering surgically implanted hearing devices. Also congenital aural atresia surgery, BAHA application; microtia repair can be performed.

Surgery for otolaryngological cancer
Otolaryngological surgery using the most modern methods available is carried out to treat the following conditions; ear, nose, throat, mouth cavity, nasal fossae, larynx, salivary gland, and the diagnosis and treatment of all benign and malign tumors in the thyroid and neck. Beside surgical treatment, post-surgery tissue loss repair and oncological treatments are provided in our clinics.

Our Rhinology department successfully administers medical and surgical procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of nasal congestion, allergy treatments, and medical and surgical treatment of sinus conditions. Congenital problems of the nose such as choanal atresia can be successfully managed.

Endoscopic techniques are widely administered in sinus surgery today. Our clinic uses the most developed and most recent “Surgical Navigation System” which reduces the risk of complications resulting from surgery. In this way, potential side effects are reduced to extremely low levels. This technology is particularly helpful in patients who have undergone previous surgeries resulting in an altered anatomy or patients with tumors.

Pediatric ear, nose and throat diseases
Our clinic is one of the few centers which offer such comprehensive treatment. Our specialist physicians carry out procedures implemented in the pediatric ear nose throat department which are not restricted to tonsil or adenoid surgeries but also include: the treatment of congenital anomalies (born without ears or nose, cleft palate), breathing disorders related to congenital throat anomalies and congenital cysts and masses.

Voice and dysphagia (swallowing disorder) disorders
The voice and swallowing disorders unit provides the necessary examinations, rehabilitation, treatment and surgery for disorders including dysphonia (loss of voice), voice disorders, difficulty in swallowing, and sialorrhea (excessive salivation).

The Lumenis CO2 laser uses cutting edge technology and is currently available at few medical institutions around the world. Our experienced specialists use the device to treat conditions including disorders of the vocal cords (polyps, lesions), tracheal stenosis (tumors), and throat cancers. Mouth and nose tumors and skin lesions can all be treated with the laser with minimum bleeding. It is also known that the laser is an extremely beneficial method in the treatment of papilloma, a viral infection of the airway. The laser is also successfully used to treat skin lesions in CO2 laser plastic surgery.

Snoring and sleeping disorders
Patients who suffer from snoring and sleep apnea are examined at our clinic. Sleeping disorders are determined at the sleep laboratory after which suitable methods of treatment (either surgical or CPAP – a mask which administers air pressure to keep airways open) are suggested.

All the tests prior to any procedure and rehabilitation following the procedure are provided by our specialist audiologists. Our Audiology department uses cutting edge technology and audiological tests are carried out in standard silent rooms. The clinic provides video ENG, caloric tests, and positional tests. Patients can also select hearing aids which are then implemented. The clinic is equipped with all technology required to treat tinnitus.

What is a cochlear implant?
A cochlear implant (bionic ear implant) is a computerized device that may restore useful hearing to persons with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss (nerve deafness). It is the only medical technology able to restore one of the body’s five senses – the sense of hearing. People who receive little benefit from hearing aids are considered for cochlear implant candidacy. Worldwide, there are more than 400,000 children and adults who benefit from cochlear implants. Unlike a hearing aid, which amplifies incoming sound, a cochlear implant changes sound waves into electrical signals. Hearing aids require functioning hair cells in the inner ear whereas cochlear implants bypass damaged hair cells and convert speech and environmental sounds into electrical signals and send these signals to the hearing nerve.
