Minimally invasive surgery in ENT used to diagnose and treat the problems of Ear, Nose, Head and Neck disorders for all surgical treatments by using advanced minimally invasive approaches at our Prathima hospitals. Some ENT problems require surgical intervention that can be operated with advanced surgical techniques by using minimally invasive surgical options that can have significant benefits for patients, including a small surgery with a fast recovery, less post-operative pain, and few scars if incisions are done.
Generally, procedures are used to perform through natural openings in the ear, nasal and throat passages but in case of MIS, the surgical procedures are different as sophisticated, thin instruments used the result in very less amount of tissue damage, a faster recovery, less pain and small scars than surgeries performed through open incisions.

We also take special care of children and infants by providing services such as neonatal screening as it helps to detect the hearing loss in the new-born, by providing the surgical and therapeutic audiological procedures. We listed our services for some of the cases are:
- Diagnostic Video Naso-Pharyngo laryngoscopy
- Management of Deafness
- Management of Vertigo
- Neonatal screening
- ENT Sinusitis
- Nose infections and injuries
- Ear infections
- Various sleep disorders, including sleep apnea
- Head and neck pain
- Speech and swallowing disorders
The advancement of technology gives a surgical procedure a new scope of technique to operate easily with the use of minimally invasive procedures and image-guided surgical techniques, as it allows patients to spend less time in the operating room, require less postoperative care is needed and faster recovery is observed. The procedures used for treating disorders of the voice box (larynx), mouth, pharynx, sinuses, middle ear, front and side of the skull base and many more.
Here we listed some of the leading edge minimally-invasive ENT surgery procedures performed at Prathima hospitals includes
The rhino-septoplasty procedure uses for the correction of the deviated septum of the external nasal pyramid, as it results in a satisfactory aesthetic outcome for the patient. The surgery is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia, done through endoscopy and radiofrequency; here we observe a shorter hospital stay. After surgery, modern materials will be used, such as silicone intranasal splints, which are less painful and helps to cure easier and faster.
In this Radiofrequency Turbinoplasty procedure, we use endoscopic equipment which allows and controls the precise execution of radiofrequency treatment of the inferior nasal concha, as it results with minimal risk of bleeding and faster recovery depending on and patient’s susceptibility.
Septoplasty is done through an endoscopy procedure and consists of straightening the cartilage and bone of the nasal septum; in spite of the opening the respiratory passages of both nostrils. Only the most deviated parts will be removed and subsequently the nasal septum assumes its initial shape leaving the nasal mucosa intact and this procedure allows the patient for faster recovery.
Adenoids are lymphoid tissue located in the back of the nose with the help of endoscope it can be visualized as the repeated inflammation of adenoids can cause harm to the ear or results in breathing problems at night such as snoring and sleep apnea with significant impact on the development of the child.
The surgery is performed for a patient’s tonsils in cases for frequently become inflamed or infected, the best course of action is to remove them surgery is performed under general anesthesia supervision and done through endoscopy and radiofrequency, complete and partial resections of the palatine tonsil, opening the oropharynx and consequently providing an improved breathing for the child in the future.
Transtympanic Ventilation Tube
The Transtympanic Ventilation Tube surgery is performed under general anesthesia surgeon and done through endoscopy and radiofrequency, with complete excision of vegetation adenoid and placing a drainage tube in the eardrum with suction secretions from the middle ear to improve local ventilation and reduce the risk at a minimum.
Endoscopic skull base surgery
Tumors of the skull base that were previously treated through large incisions through the skull can now be removed endoscopically by inserting it through the nose. In this surgery Patient having a larger scope of faster recovery and shorter hospital stays with an endoscopic approach.
Endoscopic sinus surgery
Sinus surgery can treat chronic sinusitis such as inflammation and infection effects on the lining of the sinuses or it may result in frequent sinus headaches, as general surgery have a chance to leave scars and can disrupt the delicate sinus tissues. In this surgery, a small lighted tube endoscope is inserted; sinus problems are eliminated by doing small incisions. A video monitor system will be used to guiding and operating the instrument during surgery is performed.
In this surgery a computed tomography it connected with endoscopy to improve the visualization of the target area as it is very helpful during procedures for surgeon’s that are correcting more traditional methods of sinus surgeries or procedures addressing abnormal sinus anatomy.
Laryngeal surgery is used to improve the voice is mostly performed through the mouth without having any external scars, now the advancement of technology able to perform many laser surgeries of the voice box under sedation so that general anesthesia is not required.
