  1. Head and Neck Oncology, Treatment and Surgery
    Head and neck oncology includes cancer of the mouth, nose, sinuses, salivary glands, larynx and lymph nodes in the neck.
    Treatment may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of therapies. Treatment can affect swallowing, speaking or even breathing, so patients may need rehabilitation.
  2. Laryngectomy Rehabilitation
    If you have been diagnosed with cancer of the larynx and must have a laryngectomy, you will be seen by a speech therapist for counseling before surgery. Family members are also encouraged to attend. The therapist will discuss the changes that will occur after your surgery and discuss options for communicating post surgically.
    Together, you, your doctor and your speech therapist will cooperate to obtain the best possible voice quality for you.
  3. Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
    The ENT department of AHEPA hospital is one of the first centres in Greece to provide an endoscopic approach to sinus surgery. This type of surgery, Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS), is a minimal invasion procedure, decreases the risks of conventional surgery, improves the results of surgery and avoids external face scars.
  4. Otosurgery
    In our department of AHEPA hospital we are focusing on surgery to treat and prevent complications of infections in the middle ear and to reconstructive surgery of the sound transmission system. 
    We perform surgery for chronic otitis media, stapedectomy for otosclerosis, middle ear reconstruction (ossiculoplasty), basic repairs of the ear drum (tympanoplasty) and middle ear surgery. In chronic ear surgery with a large eardrum defect (tympanic membrane perforation), damaged or absent ear bones (ossicles), cholesteatoma, and mastoid disease, a combined approach with both a tympanoplasty and mastoidectomy are performed.
  5. Hearing Implant Program
    The Hearing Implant Program at the AHEPA ENT department provides world-class treatment in helping patients who have significant hearing impairment, spoken language users, thus allowing them access to a full-range of educational, social and vocational life experiences.
    Our team works closely with patients and their families to guide them towards the best course of treatment. We look forward to answering your questions and to determine if you or your family member is a candidate for cochlear implantation.
    A range of services are performed leading up to implantation, including various diagnostic tests, consultation and evaluation. It all begins with an initial cochlear implant evaluation appointment and includes the following:
    Audiological Examination (pediatric and adult) in the Audiology Laboratory, focusing on clinical investigations of hearing loss, tinnitus and auditory electrophysiology.
    In addition to physically examining the ear, we use hearing tests to determine the type and extent of hearing loss. These hearing tests may include: pure tone hearing test, tympanogram, auditory brainstem response testing, otoacoustic emissions testing and electrocochleography.
    Comprehensive Audiologic Diagnostic Testing, Communication Evaluation, Assessment of auditory, speech and language skills and abilities is conducted.
    Once we determine the type and severity of hearing loss, we can begin treatment.
    Consultation includes the following services before and after receiving your cochlear implant: device orientation/selection, programming, troubleshooting and monitoring of progress.
    The surgeon will meet with you prior to surgery to discuss instructions, the procedure itself, and what to expect after surgery related to healing and possible hearing outcomes.
  6. Balance Problems and Treatments
    The ENT Department has invested in sophisticated equipment to investigate patients with vestibular disorders and support vestibular rehabilitation.
    Vestibular Testing with Nystagmography, for vestibular diagnosis of Ménière’s disease, acute vestibular failure and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
