The E.N.T. or Otorhinolaryngology Department provides the full range of clinical services for the diagnosis and treatment of both simple and complicated diseases of the ear, nose and throat in children. Our E.N.T surgeons are highly qualified and experienced and very adept in dealing with young children and their parents keeping in mind sensitivities and sentiments of families.
Most diseases of the Ear Nose and Throat in children requiring an E.N.T. Surgeon’s consultation pertain to disorders of the nose, sinuses and tonsils and adenoids. A few pertain to speech, hearing deficits and birth defects of the ear ( external, middle and inner ear ), face and nasal cavity. Very often surgical treatment may be required based on the severity and type of problem.
Lotus Children’s Hospital is one of the few centers in India to offer the ‘Coablator’ instrument for E.N.T. surgery which is a special instrument which minimizes damage to the adjacent structures, and therefore in the process hastens post operative recovery an minimizes pain.
E.N.T. Services offered:
 Evaluation of the child for Tonsillar and Adenoidal enlargement and surgical removal under anesthesia using ‘ Endoscopic Guided ‘ techniques.
 Evaluation and surgical correction of Deviated Nasal Septum Surgery
 Evaluation of children with sleep disorders particularly due to ‘ Obstructive Sleep Apnea ‘ and surgical treatment
 Evaluation of children on long term mechanical respiratory support and the performance of Tracheostomy surgery.
 Emergency Bronchoscopic Removal of inhaled and aspirated foreign bodies from the trachea and major airways.
 Diagnostic bronchoscopy under anesthesia for airway disorders and clearance of secretions, mucus plugging in the major airways, as well as ‘ BAL ‘ or Broncho Alveolar Lavage for sampling of respiratory secretions.
 Ear surgery for correction of external ear abnormalities, middle and inner ear diseases.
 Endoscopic Sinus surgery utilizing the ‘ Coablator ‘

Unique Distinction of our E.N.T. Department : We have had a 100% success rate of removing foreign bodies accidentally lodged in the airway of children of various age groups using safe bronchoscopic techniques.

FOREIGN BODY ASPIRATION ( Eg : bead, nuts, coin, etc ) INTO THE AIRWAY OF CHILDREN IS A DIRE MEDICAL EMERGENCY ! THIS REQUIRES RAPID EMERGENCY BRONCHOSCOPIC REMOVAL OF THE FOREIGN MATERIAL !
