Ear, Nose, and Throat Center Your ears, nose, and throat are all connected. That’s why an ENT specialist, also called an otolaryngologist, is a one-stop place to treat earaches, nasal allergies, sore throats, and much more.

Conditions of the ears, nose, and throat come in all shapes and sizes, ranging in severity and differing in symptoms. So you may think that tonsillitis (a condition in which the tonsils become inflamed) has no relation to sinusitis (an illness associated with congestion and sinus pressure), it could well be different from your perception.

Ears, nose, and throat work together as an intimate trio. That’s why a problem in any one of these areas can take a toll on all of the — discomfort in your nose that may affect your throat. But their interconnectedness can also be beneficial — treatments and nutrients that heal or protect one part of the system may transfer over and help the others.

Many people who experience painful or uncomfortable symptoms in their ears, nose, and throat play down those symptoms as an inevitable part of cold and flu or allergy season. Although ENT problems are rarely serious or life-threatening, they can be quite debilitating. Whether it’s your ears that are bothering you (an ear infection or hearing loss, perhaps), your nose that’s the problem (nasal allergies or congestion), your throat that won’t get better (a chronic sore throat or strep), or sinus pain that you’ve been struggling with.

LARYNGOSTROBOSCOPY

Diagnostic evaluations in patients with hoarseness have traditionally relied on mirror examination of the larynx using a continuous light source and on an interpretation of the patient acoustic qualities. Examination of the vibratory behaviour of vocal folds during phonation is not available to all clinicians. Most clinicians rely on the traditional mirror examination or examination with a Fiberoptic laryngoscope.


However, the criteria for objective evaluation of vibratory performance have not been standardized and the motion and edges of the vocal cords cannot be evaluated. In order to diagnose these problems, it is essential to be able to slow down or still halt the motion of vocal cords. One of the methods for doing this is to use stroboscopic light to create an optical illusion resulting from the inertia of human eyesight.


Researchers have long ago discovered that humans perceive discrete real motions at 24 frames per second only. Hence a lesser rate produces the recognisable illusion of movement but a rate that is greater affords no improvement in detail and actual movements of the object.
Voice generation is an extremely complex phenomenon involving many organs of the human body. The vocal cords however play the most important part in generating sound. By contracting and dilating at their own given frequency they determine the fundamental frequency of the voice. Vocal cords can get affected by pathologies, trauma and malformations.
When stroboscopic light is presented at intervals shorter than 0.2 seconds, a series of images of a moving object appear as one continuous image.
If we illuminate any phase of an object’s periodic movement with short pulses of light at a frequency equal to that of the object’s vibration, we actually illuminate it always at the same position this creates the effect of seeing it perfectly still.
If the frequency of vibration and illumination are slightly out of synchronisation we have the illusion that the object is moving slowly.

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS

Voice is more than a mechanical or acoustic phenomenon. It is a mirror of personality, a carrier of moods and emotions. PERSONALITY encompasses those behaviours that distinguish each individual.
Videostroboscopy for clinical observation of vocal fold vibration offers many advantages over other available techniques.

Ophthalmology

Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a specialized area of ophthalmology that deals with the management of deformities and abnormalities of the eyelids, lacrimal (tear) system, the orbit (the bony cavity surrounding the eye), and the adjacent face. Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon is an ophthalmologist (medical doctor and eye surgeon) who has completed additional training in plastic surgery as it relates to the eyes and their surrounding structures.
Ophthalmic plastic surgery is the plastic surgery of the structures surrounding the eye and face. Since such surgery can affect one’s ability to see, ophthalmic plastic surgeons are best qualified to perform these delicate surgeries and also provide any care that the eye itself may need.

SERVICES OFFERED AT INAMDAR HOSPITAL

Automated Refraction: Computer assisted Refraction, Tabletop and Portable. This gives accurate, fast and reliable spectacle prescription. Portable machine is useful while doing refraction in children and bedridden patients.

Slitlamp Biomicroscopy: This is a basic eye examination, conducted in each and every patient. It is a microscope (as the name suggest), used to see all the structure of the eye in detail. Specialized procedures like Gonioscopy & LASER treatment are done with the aid of this machine.

Applanation Tonometry: Used to measure the Intraocular pressure, commonly said as the eye pressure. This is one of the most accurate ways to measure the eye pressure. A raised eye pressure is an indication of Glaucoma.
Gonioscopy: Used to study the angle between the Cornea and Iris, in patients suspected or having Glaucoma. This is the space through which Aqueous Humour (the watery liquid in a front part of the eye) is drained out of the eye. A specially designed lens, Gonio Lens is used to conduct this test (with the aid of Slit lamp)

Perimetry: A computerized instrument used to map the field of vision. This is a test to measure/calibrate working of the optic nerve. This test is used in managing glaucoma & diagnosis of various neurological conditions.

Indirect Ophthalmoscopy: An instrument used to study the Retina, in its full extent. A special lens +20 Diopter lens is used with the indirect. It is also used for delivering LASER treatment to the Retina.

Squint Examination: Specially designed instruments and pediatric visual charts are used to diagnose various types of squint (misalignments of eyes). Prism bars, Titmus test, Bagolini glasses, Log MAR vision charts are some of the instruments used to examine patients of squint.

Contact Lens dispensing: Various kinds of soft, semi-soft and hard contact lens are dispensed. Toric (Cylindrical power), multifocal soft lenses are also dispensed.

Ascan Biometry Immersion: A computerized machine used to measure the power of the lens to be implanted in the eye after removal of cataract. Immersion mode is one of the most accurate ways of conducting this test.

Nd: YAG LASER Treatment: A special LASER used for a) Posterior capsulotomy- creating an opening in the posterior capsule of the lens), b)Peripheral Iridectomy- making a hole in the iris for easy drainage of aqueous, in Angle closure type of Glaucoma.

Diode LASER Treatment: LASER used to treat various abnormalities of Retina, like Diabetes related retinal affection, treating breaks in the retina, etc.

Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery: A specially designed machine with which is used to remove cataract, through a very small incision (cut) in the eye. This incision closes without any sutures.

Small Incision, Manual/ Non-Phaco Cataract Surgery: Cataract surgery can also be done without using the Phacoemulsification machine. The only relative disadvantage is that the size of the incision is larger.

Trabeculectomy: Surgery for glaucoma. A one-way valve is made in the Sclera for drainage of aqueous humor, thereby reducing eye pressure.

Squint Surgery: By adjusting the length & site of muscle attachment many of the squints can be corrected. Sometimes more than one operation may be necessary to achieve the desired result.

Lacrimal Sac Surgery: A block in the Nasolacrimal duct (tube draining the tears from eye to nose) is surgically bypassed in this operation. This surgery is done either through Nose (Endonasal) or externally. A special LASER is used to make a hole in the nose and lacrimal sac. Using LASER makes the procedure virtually painless and bloodless. Also there practically no chance of re-block.

Occulopasty Surgery (Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery): Various disfigurements (Eg. Ptosis/droopy eyelids, Entropion/ Ectropion, etc) of external structures of the eye are corrected by these operations.

Retinal Surgeries: Retinal detachment, Vitreous hemorrhage (bleeding in vitreous) is managed by the variety of surgical procedures, like scleral buckling, vitrectomies, etc.
