ENT and Hearing Implantology

Centre for ENT and Hearing Implantology

The Department of Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) at Aster RV Hospital is one of the best ENT hospital in Bangalore. We aim to provide high-quality, comprehensive medical care to patients with ear, nose and throat conditions. The department boasts of an expert team of ENT surgeons, audiologists and therapists. Most of the surgeries are done on a daycare basis and are offered as minimally invasive surgeries that are less painful.

 

With a multi-disciplinary approach, the ENT department works closely with other departments like speech pathology, neurosurgery, cranio-maxillofacial surgery, allergy and immunology, oncology, pulmonology, paediatrics, and neonatology for management of ear, nose and neck disorders in adults, children and neonatal babies.

 

The ENT department has an expert cochlear implant surgical team with one of the best cochlear implant surgeons performing both pediatric and adult cochlear implants. The Endoscopic skull base surgery team performs highly complex transnasal and trans-sphenoidal surgeries. We have well-trained audiologists and speech therapists who handle diagnostic audiology and provide speech therapy to paediatric and adult patients.
