About the department

The department of otolaryngology, head and neck surgery at Kardiolita Hospital Vilnius provides services for treating ear, nose and throat diseases. The department's specialisation also includes the surgical treatment of pathologies on the head and neck. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art devices for audiometry, impedancometry, and tuning fork tests, as well as a laboratory for cytological examination of the ears, nasal swab and biopsy studies. The medical team also has many years of experience performing videonystagmography to determine the cause of vestibular disorders accurately. After evaluating the results of diagnostic studies, doctors develop a comprehensive, tailored treatment regimen using reliable classical and modern techniques. Many medical procedures, such as cleaning the ear canal, washing the sulfuric plug, opening an abscess, and removing a foreign body, are performed by specialists on an outpatient basis. If the patient needs inpatient treatment, the caring medical staff creates all conditions for a comfortable stay in the clinic.

The department specialists have many years of experience in the conservative and surgical treatment of acute and chronic ENT pathologies, including injuries, infections, bleeding and foreign bodies. The department's range of surgical services includes removal of adenoids, reduction of nasal bone fractures, rhinoplasty and tonsillectomy. Doctors prefer minimally invasive, gentle surgery with cosmetic and aesthetic results.
