The weekly ENT clinic at our medical centre offers a full range of outpatient tests and services that will allow the most precise clinical diagnosis possible in one consultation.
These services range from a formal hearing test with the relevant recommendations, to the removal of wax or a foreign body from ear canals under direct vision and without the need for ear syringing.
Endoscopic examination of the upper nasal passages, the pharynx and the larynx during the consultation, allows for diagnosis of problems from the back of the nose, to the vocal cords. This technique gives the specialist a direct view of this part of our anatomy and hence a better diagnostic accuracy.
Our ENT specialist doctor has more than 20 years of clinical experience and is the head of the Marbella Quiron Hospital, ENT department. He specializes in conditions such as snoring and sleep apnoea. This latter can be diagnosed with a device that the patient takes home and records his own blood oxygen levels during the night.
As an ex-professor of the University of Seville in Spain for 10 years, he led the research and development of an app called Airway Gym for the treatment of sleep apnoea. This teaches patients a number of tongue and pharyngeal muscle exercises that improve air entry during sleep.
