Department of otolaryngology
The department of otolaryngology at University Hospital Frankfurt am Main of Goethe-University has a long history that goes back to the Carolinum sanatorium, which was founded in 1890 in honour of the Jewish banker, patron, and benefactor Freiherr Mayer Carl von Rothschild and his wife Caroline. Nowadays, it is a modern medical facility working as a part of the University Center for Tumor Diseases (UCT) and is a Certified audiological centre and is certified according to ISO 9001:2008. The department offers CI fitness (hearing) training for patients wearing cochlear implants. A Hearing Center is set with an interdisciplinary team consisting of doctors, audiologists, engineers, and radiologists. The centre offers comprehensive medical care such as rehabilitation. An additional team of surgeons specializes in the skull base region, offering exceptional skills in the area.
Hearing problems, tumours of the Head and Neck, ENT infections, and pediatric otolaryngological conditions are treated at the department. Evidence-based treatment is offered by well-trained professionals, including conservative (medications), open and endoscopic surgical methods, and rehabilitation programs.
