I couldn't have chosen a better clinic. The fact it was 65% cheaper than the prices I'd been quoted the in UK and the extra help they provide is just incredible. My surgery went perfectly and they removed 10lbs of skin from my stomach and waist. I had everything I needed in my hospital room and the nurses are so attentive, kind and available 24 hours a day.

Before and after surgery I felt like I was very well taken care of! The nurses were very compassionate, and made sure I had what I needed - and that it went well! I don't think I've experienced that it's so good in Norwegian hospitals even..I will definitely recommend the clinic further, if anyone is considering it, but is insecure.

These people went above and beyond, soooo much more polite than UK surgeons, these people actually care about how you are, check up on you and answer all the questions you have. After check up a week later, my surgeon carried my luggage to my taxi. Fussy in ways you'll never know and if ever the need for surgery again, I'll go there. Anyone I know, I'll recommend over any others I've heard of.

Surgery went good and I was so happy with my stay at the clinic with extremely helpful and friendly nurses caring for me 24/7. The clinic was so fresh and I was served delicious meals. Another bonus was their transportation team who picked me up/dropped me off at the airport, back and forth from the hotel to the clinic etc. It was great not having to worry about any logistics, since it was all taken care of.

What are ENT surgeries and procedures?

ENT simply stands for “ear, nose, and throat”. ENT surgeons focus on treating the conditions associated with hearing, smell, taste. The main ENT surgeries are:

Sinus surgery aims to open blocked sinuses remove abnormal growth in the nose and sinuses and treat ongoing or recurrent sinus infections. There are a few types of sinus surgeries, including endoscopic sinus surgery, image-guided surgery,  Caldwell-Luc operation, and sinus surgery by open approach.

Functional endoscopic surgery is the most common type of sinus surgery. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is carried out entirely through the nostrils, and so, leaves no scarring.

Myringoplasty is a surgery to close and repair a perforated eardrum. The surgery prevents infections of the middle ear and may improve hearing.  

DCR is short for dacryocystorhinostomy and it is a surgery to treat a blocked tear drain. DCR creates a bypass from the inner corner of the eye to the nasal space. 

Tonsillectomy is a surgical removal of the tonsils to treat chronic tonsillitis or sleep apnea.



What are the most common symptoms of ENT problems?

Otolaryngologists (ENT doctors) encounter various problems of the ears, nose, and throat. The most common symptoms are runny nose, loss of sense of smell, snoring, nose bleeds, ear pain, coughing, sore throat, dark circles under the eyes, , and others. Some of the common ENT pathologies are:

How are the most common ENT problems treated?

There is a very wide range of ENT conditions, and so the treatment ranges from medications, like nasal rinse all the way to  antibiotics, to many different types of ENT surgeries. 

Preparing for ENT surgery

The first step towards surgery is a consultation with an ENT surgeon. The initial check-up is usually scheduled a month before the surgery during which the doctor collects medical history, inspects the ears, nose, throat, and neck. The physician also orders laboratory (e.g. blood count) and imaging tests (e.g. CT scan) to determine the cause of the problem and plan the upcoming surgery. Prospective patients may also have to be seen by other specialty doctors, like an ophthalmologist (an eye doctor). We advise patients to bring a list of the medications they take, as some of them (e.g. Aspirin) should be discontinued before the surgery. 

Smoking is not allowed for at least 3-4 weeks before surgery since smoking severely increases the risk of thrombosis. Patients may ask a family member or a friend for assistance during the first 24 hours post-op. On the day of the surgery, we recommend patients arrive without jewelry, nail polish, or body piercings. To prevent regurgitation during surgery, patients must not eat or drink anything at least 6 hours before surgery.

How are the surgeries performed?

Endoscopic sinus surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgery is performed to treat chronic sinusitis refractory to medical treatment, nasal polyps, antrachoanal polyps, recurrent sinusitis, sinus mucoceles, sinus tumors, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, orbital decompression due to graves disease, optical nerve decompression,  and septal deviation. The main goals are to improve the airflow through the nose, reduce the severity of sinus infections and increase health related quality of life. Endoscopic sinus surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes from half to  a few hours to complete. A surgeon uses an endoscope (a tiny camera) to visualize the inside of the nasal space and sinuses. The doctor then inserts other tiny instruments alongside the endoscope to effectively remove sinus blockages and nasal polyps or straighten the deviated septum. Post-surgery, a drip pad is placed under the nose to collect nasal discharge.

Myringoplasty

Myringoplasty is a surgery to repair a perforated eardrum. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes between 10 and 60 minutes to complete. A surgeon enters the ear canal through the incision behind the ear or without any external incisions through the external ear canal using endoscope (small camera). Then the surgeon uses a muscle fascia graft or cartilage graft to repair the perforation. The ear is then filled with cotton packing and closed with a bandage to protect the ear canal.

DCR 

DCR (dacryocystorhinostomy) is a surgery to treat abnormal tearing, caused by the blockage in the tear drain. It is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 30 and 60 minutes to complete. DCR can be performed externally (through a skin incision) or endoscopically. 

Endoscopic DCR is a minimally invasive procedure that also creates a by-pass from the tear sac to the nose except the surgeon does not incise the skin and instead uses an endoscope (a miniature camera) to visualize the tear duct system. After accessing the tear drainage system, the surgeon removes a part of the bone and inserts a stent to create a new lacrimal passage. A pressure bandage may be placed over the site of surgery to reduce the bruising.

Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is a procedure to treat chronic tonsillitis or sleep apnea. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes from 30 minutes to 1 hour. During tonsillectomy, a surgeon uses a cold instruments to dissect the tonsils, a small electric probe to destroy the tissue and seal the blood vessels with electrocautery.

Recovery after the surgeries. What results can be expected?

DCR

After DCR, patients have a dressing over the eyes and under the nose. It is normal to have moderate pain, some swelling and bruising around the eye, nose, and cheek areas. Patients are prescribed antibiotic eye drops,  nasal spray. At 4 to 6 weeks, patients are routinely reviewed. If a silicon tube was placed during surgery, it has to be removed in 4 to 12  weeks post-op. It is possible to return to work as soon as 48 hours post-op.

Endoscopic sinus surgery

After surgery, a nasal drip pad is placed under the nose to collect blood. It is normal to have some swelling of the nose, upper lip, or cheeks. Some areas of the face can feel numb for up to a month. Patients see the doctor regularly for 3-4 months to check if the sinuses are healing well. A return to work can be expected in about 3 weeks.

Myringoplasty

After myringoplasty, an ear canal is plugged with a dressing for a few weeks. Patients may experience loss of taste on one side of the tongue and mild pain with chewing. For a few days post-op, it is also normal to have nausea or vertigo. For pain relief, myringoplasty patients are prescribed paracetamol or other pain killers. Full recovery can be expected in depending on surgery type from 3weeks to 3 months.

Tonsillectomy

After tonsillectomy, patients should expect moderate to severe pain in the throat, neck, or jaw, for 1 to 2 weeks. Patients may experience nasal discharge and ear pain. Ibuprofen or paracetamol may be used to reduce postoperative pain. It is recommended to have a strict diet (drink only still water, eat only soft, non-sour, non-spicy, food) and to reduce your physical activities to minimum that helps to reduce post op bleeding rate. Normal post op bleeding rate is up to 6%.  It can take up to 10 days for throat discomfort to subside and full recovery can be expected in around 2 weeks.
