Our deep experience and total focus on success in ENT diagnosis, treatment and management ensures we take care of you in order to maintain the richness of your life.

The ENT specialty does not cover the eyes, brain or teeth, but since so many parts of the head and neck whole are linked, the staff works closely with specialists in other areas – ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and dentists and oral surgeons. As with any medical specialty, there is significant crossover between the subspecialties, for example, ENT oncology and thyroid cancer treatment, otology and audiology, plastic surgery and emergency ENT, and many other examples.

All our specialists and subspecialists work in close proximity collaborating, investigating, sharing knowledge and developing new techniques.
