ENT surgery of the larynx / Adam's apple in Vienna Most diseases of the larynx cause hoarseness and other voice changes.

Most diseases of the larynx cause hoarseness and other voice changes. Benign and malignant changes in the larynx can only be clarified under the microscope. It is important to make one’s voice as good as possible and to even improve it.

In the rare event of the complete loss of voice (only extensive malignant laryngeal tumours), there are several ways to restore it by modern ENT surgery thus again enabling an almost normal voice.

Nasal surgery in Vienna by your ENT specialist Surgery to improve breathing such as functional operations of the nasal septum or operations on the turbinates (nasal conchae) are carried out through the nostrils.

Nasal surgery to improve breathing such as functional operations of the nasal septum or the turbinates (nasal conchae) are performed through the nostrils. Various endoscopes are available for endoscopic surgery of the paranasal sinuses and allow the inspection and treatment of all angles of the paranasal sinus system.

Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is done either through the nostrils or, in certain cases, corrections to the nose tip are applied by a small cut in the area of the nasal bridge.

Use of laser – modern ENT surgery methods in Vienna The CO2 laser is used in the tumour surgery on the pharynx and larynx to avoid any external damages of the neck.

ENT surgery in Vienna in case of bad hearing problems In the middle ear and in the inner ear all technically feasible operations of hearing improvement and also the implantation of hearing aids can be performed.

In the middle ear all kinds of ENT surgeries with the goal to improve the hearing including an implantation of hearing aids can be performed. For the tympanic membrane closure a piece of muscle or cartilage skin is placed under the eardrum and stabilized with a silicone strip until it is fused to the adjacent tympanic membrane

In chronically suppurating ears destroyed ossicles are replaced by a titanium prosthesis. Hearing is restored or enhanced or at best normalized.

Cosmetic ENT surgery / facial surgery / ear correction / eyelid surgery in Vienna Cosmetic changes of the shape of the nose usually coincide with problems of the function of the nose. (Treatment of nasal obstruction can be combined with cosmetic changes).

Cosmetic nasal surgery is performed simultaneously with normalization of function of the nose. It is either done through the nostrils or through a small incision on the nose bridge (followed by an almost invisible small scar).

To take operational care of protruding ears, there are various techniques to be discussed with a patient depending on the individual findings. The operation is known as otoplasty (ear correction / ear repositioning), which is a surgical procedure that is usually performed to move the ears into a more natural looking position closer to the head. As a rule, one can find no traces of a successful ENT operation as no incision is needed any more. All changes of the cartilage can be achieved by small punctures only.    

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Droopy eyelids are a major reason to consider eyelid surgery to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin for a more alert, youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty tightens sagging skin around the eyes to achieve a younger looking appearance. Blepharoplasty should also improve your vision by providing a less obstructed field of view as droopy eyelids are tightened. In blepharoplasty excessed skin, muscle and sometimes fat from the upper or lower eyelids will be removed. If you need only skin removed but not muscle, or if you need the procedure performed  on both upper and lower eyelids, ENT surgery causes barely visible scars.

The basic principle of all ENT cosmetic surgery is that one should barely (or even never) recognize that a correction has taken place. You will see: The face must not look as if it underwent a surgical correction.

Resolve your snoring problem with an ENT surgery in Vienna Snoring sounds are caused by vibrations in the throat or gullet.

Snoring usually develops in nocturnal mouth breathing caused by vibrations in the throat or gullet. If weight loss and sleep hygiene have been unsuccessful, the nasal breathing is improved or normalized (nasal septum correction, reduction of the turbinates) by the ENT surgery. The normalization of nasal breathing also eliminates the annoying nocturnal dry mouth.

At the end of the ENT surgery a nasal packing (application of sterile tampons to the nasal chambers) is inserted for one or two days. The tampons that I use are smooth, soft and elastic, so their removal the very next day does not cause any pain or other inconveniences.

ENT operations on salivary glands in Vienna Tumours of the major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular or sublingual gland) can occasionally become malignant and should be surgically removed as soon as possible.

Tumours of the major salivary glands (parotid, submandibular gland, sublingual gland) can occasionally become malignant and should be surgically removed completely. Also chronic infections of a salivary gland may sometimes require ENT surgery.

In parotid surgery modern electro-physiological methods are applied to monitor the function of the facial nerve, which runs through the parotid gland. ENT surgeries at smaller salivary glands are required for salivary stones or tumours.

ENT surgery of the tear ducts in Vienna Tears running down the cheek may be caused by narrowed or scarred lacrimal ducts as a result of inflammation in the nose or tear ducts.

Narrowed or inflamed lacrimal duct can be the result of an inflammation in the nasal or lacrimal area. Endoscopic reconstructing the drainage of the tears is achieved by opening the nasolacrimal sac to the nasal cavity. The two tiny lacrimal ducts from the eye to the nasal opening (through the nostril from the inside), so the tears can flow into the nose again.

During surgery two silicone tubes are inserted into the tear ducts and left there for several weeks. The silicone tube is hardly noticed by the patients. After healing of the mucosa in the nose the silicone tube is removed through the nostril without any discomfort to the patient.
