Specifically linked to ailments that affect the Ears, Nose, and Throat, ENT surgery at New Victoria Hospital is designed to support those who are living with conditions that affect their senses, who are experiencing difficulty with hearing, breathing, swallowing, and who have more complex conditions such as head and neck tumours.

When you come to New Victoria Hospital with a condition affecting your ears, nose, or throat, you will be referred to one of our specialist ENT Consultants to discuss the problem in more detail and learn about the potential treatment options. Also known as Otorhinolaryngologists, our highly-experienced ENT surgeons are at the forefront of their field and specialise in a range of areas.


ENT Surgery: When may you need it?

ENT surgery becomes necessary when medication and non-medical intervention has no impact on the symptoms being experienced by the patient. As many ENT conditions are directly connected to the senses, a change in or loss of one of these senses is one of the earliest and most indicative signs that something is wrong.

At New Victoria Hospital, our team of nationally-acclaimed ENT specialists are experts in identifying both common and complex conditions linked to the ear, nose and throat. Each boasting their own specialist area of expertise; once they have isolated the root cause of the problem our ENT Consultants will then decide the best course of treatment. This may involve surgery or long term medication or a combination of the two.
