The Otolaryngology Unit treats all the pathologies of the nose, throat, ear, larynx, hypopharynx, salivary glands and other related structures of the head and neck. It is specialised, in particular, in the preservation and recovery of hearing in patients suffering from partial and total deafness.
Other fields of excellence are skull base surgery, otonurosurgery, vertigo surgery for ear diseases, microendoscopic surgery of the pituitary adenoma, minimally invasive oncological surgery of head, neck and salivary gland tumours
As a day hospital, it treats obstructive sleep apnea with laser and radiofrequency. It uses the laser also in laryngeal pathologies, in association with microsurgery and endoscopy, in order to make the surgery as little invasive as possible.
In the outpatient setting, it favours techniques of video-endoscopy, microscopy and the most modern audio-vestibular instrumentation for diagnosis and early therapies. After surgery, it assists the patient with speech therapy sessions, aimed at regaining the ability to modulate the voice or swallow. The phoniatric activity is also aimed at children with speech disorders.
