Snoring Clinic: Patient is evaluated in toto i.e. weight assessment, detailed ENT examination, if required sleep study and PFT. ENT examination involves diagnostic nasal endoscopy and pharyngolaryngoscopy to see site of obstruction. We have multidisciplinary approach which involves dietician, pulmonologists and department of ENT and medicine.

Deafness Clinic: Patients ears are examined, if there is wax it is removed. Audiological evaluation is done to know the degree and type hearing loss. Depending upon clinical findings and audiological test patient is given to medical treatment, suggested surgery like tympanoplasty, mastoidectomy, stapedectomy, ossiculoplasty, myringotomy, Cochlear Implant or advised hearing aid fitting.
