Introduction

The Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) is one of the most well equipped departments with experienced faculty and instruments. Otorhinolaryngology, as it stands now, is not merely dependent on routine outdoor evaluation and conservative management as it used to be in the past. The department has adjusted well with the advancement of medical technology. With the advent of modern-day telescopes, operating microscopes, the department specializes in the management and treatment of disorders and diseases of Ear, Nose, Throat including larynx and other Head and Neck conditions across all age groups. The department has state-of-the-art microscopes to perform micro ear surgeries. There are nasal and nasopharyngeal endoscopes for diagnostics and video endoscopy facilities for all types of endoscopic sinus surgeries. Microlaryngeal surgeries and voice-improving phonosurgery are also performed.
