ENT Surgery

Chirurgie ORL clinica venart cluj-napoca

ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) surgery is a type of minimally invasive treatment used to address structural deformities or disorders in the ears, nose, and throat.

This type of surgery is performed by a multidisciplinary team of specialist ENT surgeons and plastic-aesthetic surgeons in order to ensure optimum results.

Through ENT surgery, doctors can address a variety of conditions including congenital or acquired ear deformities, obstructive sleep apnea, otosclerosis, chronic sinusitis, deviated septum, rhinoplasty for nose reshaping or reconstruction, as well as thyroid nodules or tumors.

The main goal of ENT surgery is to improve patient’s comfort and quality of life. For this reason, minimally invasive ENT surgeries are preferred by medical professionals as they involve less tissue damage compared to traditional procedures and therefore bring faster recovery times with fewer risks and complications. In addition to addressing existing issues such as those mentioned above; ENT surgery can also be used for aesthetic purposes. This includes correcting deformities such as large nostrils or droopy nasal tip that may affect a person’s appearance.

Therefore, our procedures are always tailored to meet each patient’s needs while ensuring safety and excellent results. Our team works tirelessly to provide the best possible experience before during and after any procedure done at our clinic.

We ensure excellent results in performing the following ENT surgeries:

At our ENT department, we ensure excellent results in performing the following surgeries: turbinate reduction with CO2 laser or radiofrequency, endoscopic septoplasty, rhinoseptoplasty, rhinoplasty, treatment of sleep apnea and nasal polyps, and treatment of nasal obstruction.

Turbinate reduction

An effective procedure to reduce swelling of the tissue in the nose and can be done with a CO2 laser or radiofrequency ablation.

Endoscopic septoplasty

An operation used to straighten a deviated septum which is blocking one side of the nasal passage. It involves removal of small pieces of bone and cartilage from the nasal septum.

Rhinoseptoplasty

Rhinoseptoplasty combines endoscopic septoplasty with rhinoplasty which reshapes the nose to improve symmetry and appearance.

Treatment for sleep apnea

Treatment for sleep apnea can also involve minimally invasive surgery such as uvulopalatopharyngolplasty (UPPP) combined with various other procedures like tongue base resection or tonsillectomy to remove extra tissues blocking the airway.

Treatment for Polyps

Treatment for Polyps may involve removal via endoscopy using special instruments and medications to shrink the size of these structures.

Nasal obstruction

Nasal obstruction can also be treated surgically by improving breathing through implantation of stents in the airways or by removing tissue that blocks air flow in some cases depending on severity.

Rhinoseptoplasty

Rhinoseptoplasty is a surgical procedure that corrects the deviation of the nasal septum and reshapes the external appearance of the nasal pyramid. It can be used to improve both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the nose. The operation is performed under general anaesthesia in a hospital setting and usually requires a short stay of 1-2 days. Postoperatively, modern materials are used to aid in recovery, such as internally placed silicone nasal splints for easy cleaning and help reduce bleeding. This makes recovery quicker than traditional methods allowing patients to quickly return home from hospital.

Benefits of Rhinoseptoplasty

The benefits of rhinoseptoplasty can include improved breathing through free-flowing airways, a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, and better balance among facial features. Depending on the patient’s needs and wants, several procedures may be combined into one surgery such as correcting any structural issues with bone or cartilage, narrowing or augmenting certain parts of the nose, refining or reshaping nostrils, or reducing or increasing overall size or height.

Is Rhinoseptoplasty right for you?

Before surgery begins an experienced ENT surgeon will evaluate you and determine if rhinoseptoplasty is right for you. The doctor will take detailed measurements of your face including photographs which are then used to create a digital 3D model so they can plan out their strategy before entering the operating room. During surgery itself tissue manipulation techniques are used on both inside (septoplasty) and outside (rhinoseptoplastyy) while careful attention is paid to all details in order to achieve maximum results with minimal downtime afterwards.

Turbinate reduction (Radiofrequency or CO2)

Turbinate reduction, done with either Radiofrequency or a CO2 laser, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed under endoscopic control to reduce the size of the lower nasal turbinates. This type of surgery can be completed under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s sensitivity and comfort level. The advantage of opting for this procedure over traditional methods such as coblation or outfracture is that it carries minimal risk of bleeding due to its precision and accuracy. Additionally, the recovery time from turbinate reduction is much faster than more traditional methods since a nasal swab may not even be necessary following the procedure. Radiofrequency treatment has been proven in many studies to yield more consistent results than CO2 laser turbinoplasty, making it the preferred method when possible. When compared to other options available for those dealing with blocked airways due to nasal congestion caused by enlarged turbinates, this minimally invasive operation offers a better solution for both long-term relief and faster recovery times.

Endoscopic Septoplasty

Endoscopic Septoplasty is an extremely successful surgery to correct nasal obstruction, a common problem in adult patients. It helps to improve the patient’s breathing ability by opening the respiratory passages of both nostrils. During the operation, the deviated portions of the septum are removed, and it is re-shaped so that it regains its normal shape, with no damage to the surrounding tissue.

About the procedure:

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and typically takes about 1-2 hours for completion. The patient may stay in hospital for a maximum of 2 days following the procedure. Recovery from this type of surgery generally takes several weeks but may vary from person to person depending on their own individual healing process.

In some cases:

If Endoscopic Septoplasty alone isn't sufficient to correct nasal obstruction, then other methods such as turbinectomy or septal perforation repair may be recommended in conjunction with this procedure. This can help to further open the airways and improve breathing ability even more efficiently.

Furthermore:

Aftercare following Endoscopic Septoplasty is important in order to ensure that everything has healed effectively and that any infections have been eradicated completely. This includes regular follow up visits with your doctor, as well as monitoring your progress through self-management techniques such as keeping a diary of symptoms or using peak flow meters to measure lung function over time.
