Head and nreck surgery/ENT surgery
The ENT branch of Rambam is dedicated to the treatment of diseases of the ear, throat, and nose, as well as tumors in the head and neck area. The main focus of the department is the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from various diseases of the nose, sinuses, ears, mouth, throat, pharynx, head, neck, and the base of the skull. Patients of all ages are treated here.
The department performs all types of regular and plastic surgery for ENT. During surgical interventions, the most modern surgical techniques and minimally invasive methods are utilized to preserve organs and prevent the traumatization of surrounding tissue.
Functional endoscopic sinus surgery, or FESS, is a surgical procedure in which the sinuses are opened via the nostrils. This operation has evolved significantly over the past decade because of a better understanding of the disease, as well as improved instrumentation, imaging, intra-operative techniques and anesthetics.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, or UPP, is a surgical procedure that removes tissue from the throat to alleviate symptoms caused by obstructive sleep apnea. During the procedure, the surgeon removes a number of tissues including the pharynx, soft palate, tonsils, adenoids, and uvula. For those struggling with obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, undergoing this surgical procedure may be the best option to restore healthy sleeping patterns.
