ENT department (Ear, Nose, Throat)

At the Ear, Nose, Throat, Head and Neck Surgery Department, we provide you with the best treatment and follow up. We do have also one of the leading and pioneer Cochlear Implant centers in the region, established in 2008 with more than 12 years of experience in this field, the first BAHA (Bone anchored Hearing Aid) and the first Brainstam Implant in Lebanon.


 Cochlear Implants: These are small, complex electronic devices that can help individuals with severe hearing problems to regain their sense of sound. They consist of a small external device that sits directly behind the ear, with another portion surgically planted beneath the skin. Cochlear implants provide more effective assistance than traditional hearing aids, which simply increase sound volume without improving the quality of speech understanding. In contrast, they transmit a clarity of sound that is often critical for hearing impaired patients in order to understand speech and language. Cochlear implant surgery is followed by a rehabilitation program (speech session and feetings) and training period that provides the patient with optimal hearing assistance for the most positive results.

 Bone Anchored Hearing Aids Surgery (BAHA): It is a small hearing aid, implanted into the skull bone and tailored to match the needs of patients suffering from conductive hearing loss (outer or middle ear problems), mixed hearing losses (both middle and inner ear problems) and single-sided sensorineural hearing loss(total deafness in one ear).

 Tympanoplasty: The surgical reconstruction of the eardrum (the tympanic membrane) and/or the small bones of the middle ear (ossicles).

 Ossiculoplasty: The surgical reconstruction of the middle ear ossicular chain which has been disrupted or destroyed due to cholesteatoma or to the overuse of devices positioned inside the ear that has damaged the transfer of sound to the inner ears.

 Surgery of the Stapes:Otosclerosis is a condition where the third bone of hearing does not operate the way it should. This causes conductive hearing loss. If the condition is mild, treatment may not be necessary; but when the hearing loss becomes more advanced, hearing aids or surgery may be the most effective treatment options. Our ENT doctors offer a surgical procedure called stapedectomy to treat this condition. A single outpatient surgery can often permanently and completely reverse this type of hearing loss and provide many years of hearing improvement.
