OTORHINOLARYNGOLOGY (ENT)

OVERVIEW

Department of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) had a humble beginning in 1988-89 with basic infrastructure to treat ENT diseases and to train just 100 under graduate students. It progressed rapidly to excel in patient care and teaching and learning. The undergraduate students were performed well in university assessments. The department started postgraduate courses-Diploma in Otolaryngology (DLO) and MS Otorhinolaryngology in 1997 and has performed well by training  Diploma and  MS students with two gold medals in RGUHS and five gold medals in SDUAHER. The department steadily expanded its clinical frontiers and has excelled in performing major head and neck and reconstructive surgeries, delicate and precise micro surgeries and endoscopic surgeries in Ear, Nose and Throat and Endoscopic Skull base surgeries and treating airway emergencies in adults and children since January 1997. The department takes pride in being the first department in our state to have started Fellowship in Head and Neck Oncosurgery in November 2009 for ENT Surgeons and General Surgeons and has trained  Fellows who have excelled in the field. The department further went on to start Fellowship in Oral Oncosurgery for Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2017. The department has been providing expert quality care in advanced Otorhinolaryngology disorders and Head and Neck Cancers and malformations under Government insurance schemes and at concessional and easily affordable cost for poor patients who do not come under insurance schemes in this rural area and adjoining districts of neighboring states. The department is recognized all over the country as on one of the best Otolaryngology department in a medical college performing head and neck cancer surgeries.
