Special ear surgery. This specialism in particular requires in-depth qualifications.
The highly skilled ENT surgeons who have already successfully completed the full ENT training undergo extra training before entering the specialised areas of ENT surgery. Specialist ear surgery is part of the training for the specialist ENT surgeon. In order to hone the focus of our practice in Kassel on specialist ear surgery, after medical studies, we prioritise ear surgery even during the training for otolaryngology and ENT surgery. As such, we pride ourselves on our experience and expertise gathered from many operations - from which you as patient benefit.
With the demanding operations on the ear and the side of the skullbase as part of our permanent range of services, in addition to the centre of excellence for nose surgery, we have also become a centre of excellence for special ear surgery.
The focus is on operations to improve hearing and treating serious ear disorders
There are many potential causes for bad hearing, or the continual loss of hearing, no matter whether the patient is experiencing inner ear hearing loss, sensorineural deafness, presbycusis or high-frequency hearing loss. The anatomy and function of the human hearing apparatus is extremely complex. The specialist services we offer are hearing-improvement surgery in the form of eardrum operations, middle ear surgery, and ear implants as part of the tympanoplasty procedure.
Of no less importance is our work in the area of the surgical correction of serious ear conditions such as cholesteatoma and otosclerosis.
