Ear, Nose and Throat problems are common and can cause significant symptoms. Whilst most conditions can be managed in Primary Care, the failure of conservative treatment may require referral to a specialist ENT Clinic.
We accept referrals to our specialist ENT clinics throughout Greater Manchester. The clinics are run by experienced consultant ENT surgeons who also practice in well-established local hospitals. We deal with all adult ENT conditions and arrange further investigations if indicated. Any surgery that is required is carried out on the Trafford Hospital as a day case by one of the consultant team. However, it is likely that any patient will be seen, reviewed and operated upon by the same consultant ensuring continuity of care.
Our consultants provide a comprehensive initial consultation which includes minor procedures such as flexible laryngoscopy, nasendoscopy, microscopic ear suction and nasal cautery if indicated.
Although most day case procedures are carried out, the common day case surgical procedures include:
- Nasal Septoplasty (to relieve nasal obstruction)
- Nasal Polypectomy
- Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (to cure chronic sinusitis)
- Microlaryngoscopy (for biopsy of the larynx / pharynx)
- Grommets (for glue ear in adults)
- Excision of neck lumps
- Tympanoplasty (to repair ear drum perforations)
