ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat)

 

​ENT stands for Ear, Nose and Throat.  It describes the department which specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose, throat, and head and neck disorders. University Hospitals treats local patients and patients from a wider area, including Shropshire and Derbyshire.

Although all the ENT consultants at University Hospitals are trained surgeons who can perform a wide range of operations, they also offer non-surgical treatments for conditions such as allergic rhinitis (allergy of the nose) and balance disorders.

Services we provide

  • A comprehensive service for both adults and children, which includes both planned and emergency treatment.

  • Rhinology (disorders of the nose).  A full range of surgical procedures including endoscopic sinus surgery and facial plastic surgery.

  • Otology (disorders of the ear).  A comprehensive Otology service offering surgical and medical treatments. This includes a specialist BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) programme.

  • Paediatric ENT (disorders in children). The ENT team are fully trained in diagnosing and treating childhood ENT conditions.

  • Pituitary tumour surgery. This includes the provision of endoscopic surgery, a highly specialised procedure which is minimally invasive. This service is provided by very few other centres, and we receive referrals countrywide. (Minimally invasive surgery involves procedures performed by entering the skin through small incisions or a body cavity with the aims of causing the least possible damage to structures while achieving the same result as if performed by open surgery).​
