Service


The Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery is made up of board-certified physicians who specialize in the medical and surgical management of patients with ear, nose, and throat (ENT) diseases. The breadth of expertise of the ENT physicians encompasses commonly encountered diseases such as ear pain, hearing loss, dizziness, tonsillitis, laryngitis, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and even the common cold.


Over time, the field has further expanded into multiple subspecialties namely Otology, Rhinopharyngology, Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery, Pediatric ENT, and Sleep Medicine. The advent of these subspecialties has made it possible to address more complicated diseases including malignant head and neck tumors, facial fractures, swallowing and voice disorders, and aesthetic facial deformities.


By being a multispecialty field, the Department of ENT has been able to extend its services to its patients and provide them with a holistic approach to disease management in order to ensure improvement in their quality of life.


Training


Aside from its clinical endeavors, the Department of ENT–HNS accepts trainees yearly. It offers a private hospital-based four-year Residency Training Program, which has been accredited by the Philippine Board of Otolaryngology since 1996. Its goal is to train resident physicians to be competitive and world-class ENT doctors who are knowledgeable and armed with state-of-the-art and world class skills, and who are compassionate, conscientious, and service-oriented.


Research


Another advocacy of the Department is to provide academic and professional advancement in the field of ENT-HNS through research and Continuing Medical Education (CME). The involvement of consultants and residents in workshops and seminars has been highly encouraged in order to promote the utilization of data for the improvement of patient care and other aspects of the department.

The Ear, Nose, Throat – Head and Neck Surgery Center


The ENT–HNS Center, aside from offering specialized services, provides a venue for ENT consultants to assess patients and perform more specialized procedures outside of their clinics.
