Rhinology is a subspeciality of ENT surgery. It deals with the evaluation and treatment of all types of conditions affecting the nose and sinus. Common diseases treated include chronic sinusitis, deviated nasal septum, nasal polyps, CSF leak skull base tumours, allergies and other disorders causing nasal congestion. Our novel treatment plans are aimed at a faster recovery and zero disease recurrence.

Acoustic Neuromas

Vestibular schwannomas, another name for acoustic neuromas, are benign tumours that grow on the vestibular nerve that connects the brain to the inner ear. These slow-growing tumours can cause hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance issues as they press against nearby structures. While the exact cause remains unclear, some cases are linked to a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis type 2. Treatment options vary based on factors such as tumour size and symptoms, ranging from careful monitoring to surgical removal or radiation therapy. Early detection and intervention are crucial in managing symptoms and preserving neurological function in individuals affected by acoustic neuromas.

Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, manifests as inflammation of the nasal passages due to allergens. Nasal congestion, sneezing, itching, and watery eyes are some of the symptoms. Seasonal allergic rhinitis occurs during specific times of the year, while perennial allergic rhinitis persists year-round. Causes range from pollen and pet dander to dust mites and mould. Diagnosis involves a medical history review, physical examination, and allergy testing. Treatment options encompass allergen avoidance, antihistamines, nasal corticosteroids, and immunotherapy. Effective management alleviates symptoms and enhances the quality of life for individuals suffering from allergic rhinitis.


Anosmia, the loss of smell, robs individuals of a fundamental sensory experience, leaving them disconnected from the world of scents. Whether caused by a head injury, viral infection, or neurological disorder, anosmia can profoundly impact one's quality of life. Without the ability to detect odours, everyday pleasures like savouring a delicious meal or enjoying the aroma of freshly cut flowers become distant memories. Moreover, anosmia poses practical challenges, such as detecting gas leaks or spoiled food. Despite its invisible nature, anosmia carries tangible consequences, emphasising the importance of olfaction in our perception of the world and our safety within it.

Deviated Nasal Septum

A deviated nasal septum occurs when the thin wall between the nasal passages is displaced to one side, leading to obstruction or difficulty in breathing through one or both nostrils. This deviation may result from injury, congenital factors, or even without apparent cause. Symptoms include nasal congestion, frequent nosebleeds, facial pain or pressure, and difficulty breathing, particularly during sleep. While some individuals may not experience significant issues, others may require medical intervention such as nasal corticosteroids, nasal dilators, or surgery to correct severe deviations. Addressing a deviated nasal septum can significantly improve breathing and quality of life for affected individuals.

Glue Ear

Glue ear, medically termed otitis media with effusion (OME), is a common condition characterised by the accumulation of thick, sticky fluid in the middle ear. Its symptoms include hearing loss, earache, a feeling of pressure in the ear, and sometimes, difficulty in balance. Causes range from allergies and respiratory infections to Eustachian tube dysfunction, where the tube connecting the middle ear to the back of the throat becomes blocked. Treatment varies, including watchful waiting for mild cases, antibiotics for infections, and surgical procedures like grommet insertion to drain fluid and restore hearing. Regular monitoring ensures effective management of this prevalent ailment.

Cochlear Implant

A cochlear implant is a revolutionary device designed to provide a sense of sound to individuals with severe hearing loss or profound deafness. Consisting of an external processor and internal electrode array surgically implanted into the cochlea, it bypasses damaged hair cells to directly stimulate the auditory nerve. This technology enables recipients to perceive sounds, including speech, music, and environmental noises, significantly enhancing their communication abilities and quality of life. While not a cure for deafness, cochlear implants offer remarkable benefits, allowing many to reconnect with the auditory world and participate more fully in social interactions and everyday activities.

Hearing Loss

Hearing loss manifests through various symptoms, including difficulty understanding speech, ringing in the ears, and withdrawal from social situations. Causes range from prolonged exposure to loud noises, ageing, infections, to genetic factors. Diagnosis involves thorough examinations by an audiologist, including hearing tests and medical history reviews. Treatment options depend on the severity and underlying cause, ranging from hearing aids, and cochlear implants, to surgeries in some cases. Prevention through ear protection in noisy environments and regular check-ups is crucial. Early detection and intervention significantly improve outcomes, enhancing communication, quality of life, and overall well-being for individuals affected by hearing loss.

Laryngeal Cancer

Laryngeal cancer, a malignancy affecting the voice box, presents with various symptoms including hoarseness, persistent cough, difficulty swallowing, and ear pain. Commonly attributed causes include smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and exposure to certain chemicals. Types of laryngeal cancer include squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, with the former being most prevalent. Diagnosis typically involves a combination of physical examination, imaging tests like CT scans, and biopsy. Treatment options range from surgery to remove the tumour, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these modalities. Early detection and prompt treatment significantly improve prognosis, emphasising the importance of regular screenings and lifestyle modifications.


Laryngitis, inflammation of the voice box (larynx), manifests through hoarseness, throat soreness, and difficulty speaking. Acute laryngitis typically stems from viral infections or vocal strain, while chronic cases often result from smoking, acid reflux, or prolonged voice misuse. Types include acute and chronic laryngitis, each with varying durations and underlying causes. Diagnosis involves a physical exam, and vocal assessment, and may include imaging or laryngoscopy. Treatment encompasses voice rest, hydration, and avoiding irritants for acute cases. Chronic laryngitis necessitates addressing underlying issues, such as lifestyle changes, medication, or speech therapy. Persistent symptoms warrant medical consultation for tailored management.

Mouth Ulcer

Canker sores, another name for mouth ulcers, are tiny, painful lesions that form on the sensitive tissues within the mouth. These ulcers can be caused by various factors, including stress, hormonal changes, injury from dental work, or certain foods. Although usually harmless and healing on their own within a week or two, they can be quite uncomfortable, making eating and speaking difficult. Over-the-counter topical treatments can provide relief by reducing pain and promoting healing. Maintaining good oral hygiene and avoiding irritating foods can help prevent their occurrence. However, persistent or unusually large ulcers should be evaluated by a healthcare professional to rule out any underlying health concerns.

Nasal Obstruction

Nasal obstruction, characterised by difficulty breathing through the nose, presents various symptoms including congestion, snoring, and decreased sense of smell. Causes range from structural issues like deviated septum and nasal polyps to inflammatory conditions such as allergies and sinusitis. Types of obstruction include unilateral or bilateral blockage, often affecting quality of life. Diagnosis involves a thorough medical history, physical examination, and possibly imaging studies like CT scans. Treatment modalities encompass nasal decongestants, antihistamines, corticosteroids, or surgical interventions like septoplasty or turbinate reduction. Effective management aims to alleviate symptoms and improve nasal airflow, enhancing overall respiratory function and quality of life.

Oesophagal Stricture Dilatation

Oesophageal stricture dilatation is a medical procedure aimed at widening narrowed areas in the oesophagus, which can occur due to various reasons such as scarring, inflammation, or tumours. During the procedure, a flexible tube with a balloon or dilator at its tip is passed through the mouth or nose and gently advanced to the narrowed segment. The balloon or dilator is then inflated to stretch the narrowed area, allowing for improved swallowing and passage of food. This minimally invasive procedure can significantly alleviate symptoms like difficulty swallowing and chest pain, restoring normal function to the oesophagus and improving the quality of life for patients.

Vocal Cord Paralysis

Vocal cord paralysis is a condition marked by the loss of movement in one or both vocal cords, disrupting speech and breathing. Typically caused by injury, surgery, or neurological disorders, it manifests as hoarseness, breathiness, or difficulty swallowing. Treatment options vary based on the severity and underlying cause, ranging from voice therapy to surgical intervention. Speech-language pathologists play a crucial role in rehabilitating patients, offering techniques to improve vocal quality and communication. While some cases resolve spontaneously, others require long-term management to mitigate symptoms and enhance quality of life. Early diagnosis and tailored interventions are essential for optimal recovery and function.


Tuberculosis, caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, primarily affects the lungs but can also target other parts of the body. Constant coughing, weight loss, fever, and night sweats are some of the symptoms. It spreads through airborne droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Factors like weakened immune systems increase susceptibility. Diagnosis involves chest X-rays, sputum tests, and tuberculin skin tests. Treatment typically entails a combination of antibiotics taken for several months to eradicate the bacteria, ensuring compliance to prevent drug resistance. Effective management involves isolation, contact tracing, and public health interventions. Early detection and treatment are crucial in controlling this infectious disease.
