Consultants in Ear, Nose and Throat can treat:
These small tissue growths form inside the nasal passages and sinuses and can cause problems with a person’s breathing, sense of taste or smell and cause a runny nose. Our private ENT specialist will treat them with medication to shrink them or they can be removed during endoscopic surgery.
There are many reasons for facial discomfort and headaches. Problems with sinuses may cause pain in the face. An ENT consultant is able to diagnose and help you manage this problem.
Nasal discharge and blockages
Excessive or persistent nasal discharge can be caused by a number of problems including allergies, nasal polyps and rhinitis, an issue which causes blockages in the nasal passages due to inflammation.
Deformities to the nasal passage can be present at birth or caused by nasal trauma, such as a fracture to the nose. Some medical conditions can also cause nasal deformities.
Watering from the eyes
If caused by blocked tear duct, can be operated endoscopically to correct this without leaving a scar on the face.
Dizziness and vertigo
Dizziness and vertigo are caused by a number of different issues including dehydration or low blood pressure. In some cases, problems with the ear, such as an infection, can cause people to feel dizzy or nauseous.
A constant buzzing or ringing in the ears is known as tinnitus and can cause problems such as sleep issues or impact on concentration. Tinnitus has a range of causes from a build-up of ear wax to an ear infection. Our ENT specialist can help diagnose the cause of the problem and advise on various treatment methods.
Discharge from ear
Sudden onset of ear discharge, persistent ear discharge for long periods or recurrent ear discharge needs to be investigated and treated medically or surgically.
A recurrent sore throat
Can be due to infections, acid reflux or allergies. A consultation with an ENT surgeon will help in reaching the right diagnosis and treatment – medical or surgical.
Change in voice
This needs to be investigated to find the root of the cause, an ENT specialist is well equipped for reaching a diagnosis and if required, providing the best course treatment.
