Bronchoscopy

A tiny camera attached to a long tube is inserted through your nose or mouth and passed down through the airways into your lungs. This allows the surgeon to make a diagnosis either by seeing directly what is causing the problem or by taking a small tissue (biopsy) or lung secretion sample.

Cochlear Implant

An incision (cut) is made behind your ear and the skin pulled back exposing the mastoid bone. A hole is drilled through this bone to expose the cochlear. The electrodes of the cochlear implant are inserted into the cochlear while the receiver part of the implant is embedded into the skull just underneath the skin. The skin is then replaced back over the implant.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

A tiny camera attached to a tube (endoscope) is inserted into your nose. Very small instruments can be passed through the endoscope and used to remove small pieces of bone and soft tissue. This opens up the ventilation and drainage pathways in the outer wall of your nose.

Grommet Insertion

This operation is performed through the ear canal. A hole is made in the eardrum and the middle ear drained. A small hollow tube (grommet) is placed in the eardrum hole which allows air into the middle ear.

Oesophagoscopy

A tiny camera attached to a long tube is inserted into your mouth and passed down through your pharynx into your oesophagus. This allows the surgeon to make a diagnosis either by seeing directly what is causing the problem or by taking a small tissue sample (biopsy).

Micro-laryngoscopy

A tiny camera attached to a tube (laryngoscope) is inserted into your mouth and down your throat. This allows the surgeon to make a diagnosis either by seeing directly what is causing the problem or by taking a small tissue sample (biopsy).

Stapedectomy

This operation is performed through the ear canal with an operating microscope. An incision (cut) is made in the middle ear, the small bones of the middle ear are identified and the stapes is removed. A prosthesis is inserted to transmit sound and the wound is closed.

Tympanoplasty

This operation is performed through the ear canal with an operating microscope. An incision (cut) is made in the middle ear to view the perforated eardrum, the ear drum is elevated away from the ear canal and lifted forward. A graft of tissue closes the perforation, and the ear is stitched together.

Uvulo-palato-pharyngoplasty

This operation is performed through the mouth to remove the uvula and the pharyngeal arches and partial removal of the soft palate. Performed as a part of obstructive sleep apnea surgery, the tonsils may also be removed.

Mastoidectomy

An incision (cut) is made behind the ear and the air containing space (called the mastoid) is opened. A cortical mastoidectomy involves clearing out diseased tissue in the mastoid cells leaving the ear canal alone. A modified radical mastoidectomy involves joining the spaces of the middle ear canal and the mastoid together to provide an ear that is safe and dry, and hopefully retain some functional hearing.
