Department of otolaryngology, facial, head, neck, and skull base surgery

The department of otolaryngology, facial, head, neck, and skull base surgery at Academic Hospital Koblenz-Montabaur offers a full range of accurate diagnostics and modern conservative and surgical treatment of diseases of the ear and throat, nose, and head and neck. In addition, high-quality services are provided in phoniatry, pedaudiology and speech therapy. Furthermore, the department houses a progressive Cochlear Implant Center, distinguished by outstanding success in treating hearing loss. According to Focus magazine, the department is one of the leaders in treating hearing impairment in Germany. In addition, the department is affiliated with the German Society for Hematology and Oncology and specialises in the treatment of head and neck tumours. The department regularly holds interdisciplinary oncological consultations to develop an optimal individual treatment therapy.

The critical focus is cochlear implantation, carried out in a specialised centre. The treatment process includes complex diagnostics, installation of a cochlear implant, and subsequent patient rehabilitation. Cochlear implantation is performed for both children and adults. Doctors prefer to use minimally invasive and microsurgical surgical procedures for all operations using endoscopes, microscopes, lasers, intraoperative nerve monitoring, intraoperative navigation and maxillofacial surgery. The department has all the options to remove the tumour gently. In the case of severe interventions due to medical necessity or on request, the treatment is carried out by an anesthesiologist under short-term outpatient anaesthesia.
