ENT Diseases & Conditions

The ENT team is known for its expertise in diagnosing, treating, and managing a wide range of conditions affecting the airway, voice, hearing, speech, and sinuses. Some of the conditions and areas we specialise in include:

Ear Diseases:

  • Hearing loss is of two main types: conductive and sensorineural (nerve-related). Nerve-related hearing loss can be acquired at birth or at later ages and is initially treated with hearing aids. However, if the hearing loss is severe or profound, then cochlear implants are the best option. 
    Cochlear implantation is currently the gold standard for treating severe to profound hearing loss. Children as young as 9 months can now be implanted. Yashoda Hospitals has an expert team of CI surgeons, audiologists, and speech therapists to take care of children and adults with severe hearing loss.
  • Otosclerosis is a condition in which the third bone of hearing, or stapes, becomes fixed and no longer conducts sound. This results in conductive hearing loss. Our experts offer a surgery called endoscopic stapedotomy, in which the third bone is replaced with a prosthesis. This is a daycare procedure that helps restore hearing and provides long-term results.

  • Chronic ear infections can be caused by a perforated eardrum (hole in the eardrum) or cholesteatoma (excessive growth of skin in the ear) and result in ear discharge. Treatment may involve ear drops and antibiotics in the initial stages. However, long-term infections may require surgery. Procedures such as tympanoplasty, mastoidectomy, and ossiculoplasty can help eliminate the infection and restore hearing.

  • Lateral skull base tumours are benign tumours that develop at the base of the skull. Patients present with hearing loss and ringing in the ears. On imaging, they are diagnosed with acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, and paragangliomas (glomus tumours). Our team has extensive experience performing lateral skull base surgery and provides stable, long-lasting results.

  • Vertigo is characterised by dizziness and difficulties with balance and coordination caused by problems in the inner ear (peripheral vertigo) or problems in the brain or nervous system (central vertigo). Our team provides a comprehensive range of vertigo diagnostic and treatment services to help patients recover and manage their symptoms.

  • Tinnitus is a ringing sensation in the ears that occurs in the absence of an external stimulus. It can occur suddenly or develop gradually over time and often results in some degree of hearing loss. Tinnitus is commonly associated with age-related hearing loss, inner ear damage, earwax build-up, or Meniere’s disease.

  • Eustachian tube dysfunction is a condition in which the tubes that connect the middle ear to the upper throat become blocked, causing discomfort, hearing difficulties, and a feeling of fullness in the ear. This condition usually resolves itself within a few days. If symptoms do not improve within two weeks, treatments may include medications or, in severe cases, surgery.

  • Facial paralysis is the inability to move the muscles on one or both sides of the face as a result of nerve damage. The facial nerve has a complex course through the ear. Treatment is determined by the underlying condition that causes paralysis and the site of nerve damage.

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Our experts provide specialised treatment for adults and children with obstructive sleep apnea who have not found relief through other treatment options, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). These patients undergo a comprehensive upper airway evaluation, which includes DISE (Drug Induced Sleep Endoscopy), Imaging, and Outpatient Flexible Endoscopy. Based on the evaluation, appropriate surgical interventions are performed, such as tonsillectomy and palate surgeries like Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and Barbed Reposition Pharyngoplasty Tongue Base Surgery.

Nose and Allergies:

  • Chronic sinusitis is an infection and inflammation of the sinuses that lasts more than 12 weeks. Symptoms include facial tenderness or pressure, post nasal drip, nasal discharge and congestion, ear pain, and headache. Yashoda Hospitals’ experienced ENT specialists use advanced methods to diagnose and treat chronic sinusitis, including minimally invasive endoscopic sinus surgery.
  • Nasal polyps are noncancerous, painless growths that form on the lining of the nasal passage or sinuses. They commonly occur in people with asthma, allergies, recurrent infections, or inflammation in the nasal passages. Medications such as nasal corticosteroids are the first choice of treatment to shrink nasal polyps and relieve symptoms. If medications are ineffective, endoscopic surgery is used to remove polyps and correct problems with the sinuses.
  • Nasal bleeding, also known as epistaxis, is the sudden loss of blood from the nose, which can range from a few drops to a significant amount of blood. Our team of experienced ENT specialists provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for nasal bleeding, including advanced diagnostic imaging and state-of-the-art surgical options as needed.
  • Nasal allergy, also known as rhinitis, is an inflammation of the nasal passages caused by an allergen such as pollen, dust, mould, or pet dander. It is commonly associated with cold-like symptoms such as sneezing, itchiness, and a blocked or runny nose. The ENT Centre at Yashoda Hospitals provides a comprehensive approach to treating nasal allergies, including allergy testing to identify specific triggers and medications to manage symptoms.
  • Nasal and anterior skull base tumours are noncancerous growths that occur in the nasal and frontal regions of the skull. Common symptoms include nasal congestion, facial pain, and persistent nosebleeds. Our highly experienced team specializes in nasal and anterior skull base surgeries, delivering successful outcomes with long-term stability and improved quality of life for patients.

Voice Disorders : Patients often experience voice changes or hoarseness, which can be attributed to conditions such as vocal cord lesions or masses or vocal cord paralysis. Additionally, individuals with Spasmodic Dysphonia may present with a weak voice, which can be effectively treated by Botox Injections into the vocal cord. Yashoda Hospitals, a leading ENT center in the region, offers advanced Voice Solutions through surgical interventions such as MLS, Medialization Thyroplasty, and Injection Laryngoplasty, among others.

Salivary Gland Disorders : Salivary gland disease can be identified by swelling over the cheek or below the jaw. Chronic parotid or submandibular gland disorders can arise from infections, while salivary gland duct stones and strictures can cause obstruction and chronic pain. These can be treated using the state-of-the-art Sialendoscopes, which are fine endoscopes less than 1 mm in diameter. These endoscopes enable precise treatment of ductal pathology while preserving the gland. The stones can be easily extracted through the mouth without any incisions. Yashoda Hospital is the only corporate hospital in the region providing this cutting-edge facility. In cases where necessary, gland excision can be performed through the mouth to avoid facial scarring.

Pediatric ENT Disorders:

  • Chronic tonsillitis and adenoid hypertrophy are common conditions characterized by the inflammation and enlargement of the tonsils and adenoids, respectively. Patients often experience symptoms such as recurrent sore throat, difficulty swallowing, and sleep-disordered breathing. Our team provides advanced surgical interventions, including tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, with a focus on achieving optimal outcomes.
  • Airway disorders include a range of conditions that affect the respiratory passages. Patients may often experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chronic cough, and wheezing. Our team of specialists has vast expertise in the field of airway disorders and is well-equipped to perform surgical interventions aimed at restoring proper airway function.
