Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Procedures Done in a Day Hospital
ENT procedures include a wide selection of surgeries that cover medical and cosmetic procedures alike. Whether it is tonsillectomy or rhinoplasty, these procedures can be done in a day hospital to avoid multiple hospitalisation days that would ramp up the medical bill. At Centurion Day Hospital, we offer various ear, nose, and throat surgeries that include the following:
One of the most commonly performed medical ear, nose, and throat procedures is tonsillectomy. Tonsils can be removed at a young age if they start to develop tonsillitis. However, some adults still have their tonsils, which can lead to tonsillitis at an older age as well. This procedure will be performed by an ENT surgeon to ensure that the tonsils are safely removed, and the infection or inflammation is addressed.
More commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects and reconstructs the nose. There are 2 types of rhinoplasty that can be performed – reconstructive and cosmetic. Reconstructive rhinoplasty aims to restore the shape and function of the nose, while cosmetic rhinoplasty improves the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed by either an ear, nose, and throat or a plastic surgeon, dependent on the type of surgery.
Myringotomy is a procedure that inserts grommets into the eardrums to drain fluids from the ears. After repeated ear infections, this ear, nose, and throat procedure can assist to combat fluid build-up that can impede hearing and cause irreparable damage to the eardrums.
Reduction of Nose Fracture
In the case of a broken or fractured nose, this ENT procedure can set the nose back to its normal position to ensure that it heals correctly and not crooked. It is performed by an ear, nose, and throat surgeon, usually soon after the nose has been fractured or broken.
