UH Ear, Nose & Throat Institute
University Hospitals Ear, Nose & Throat Institute Provides Superior, Convenient Care
University Hospitals Ear, Nose & Throat Institute at University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center provides comprehensive, personalized care for patients with a variety of ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions. The services we provide combine the expertise of northeast Ohio’s first hospital institute dedicated to otolaryngology care with the convenience of a community hospital.
UH Ahuja Medical Center is home to the Nasal Sinus Center, where our board-certified ENT specialists use the latest diagnostic and treatment options to help patients suffering from a wide array of sinus conditions, including headaches, chronic sinusitis, allergies and deviated septum.
Our multidisciplinary approach means that each patient will receive the most comprehensive care available, with a treatment plan individually tailored to his or her specific needs. Available treatments range from simple, non-surgical options to advanced surgical procedures.
Leading Procedures, Services and Technology
Our otolaryngology specialists offer a variety of treatments and technologies that deliver faster healing and result in less postsurgical pain. These include:
- Sinus surgery without packing the nose with gauze, as was required in the past; most of our sinus surgery patients return home the day after surgery
- Radiographic image guided endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery; this technology improves accuracy and results.
- Techniques for tonsil surgery that reduce tissue trauma and speed healing; patients ages 3 to 12 have reduced pain and are able to leave the hospital the same day of surgery.
- Cochlear implantation to restore hearing
- Endoscopic balloon sinus surgery; during this procedure, the physician uses an endoscope (a small, flexible tube with a light and a camera lens at the end) to view the inside of the nose and make tiny incisions.
- Implanting bone-anchored hearing aids, which can help individuals who have conductive hearing loss, unilateral hearing loss or who cannot wear in-the-ear or behind-the-ear hearing aids; bone-anchored hearing aids use a surgically implanted titanium post to transmit sound, bypassing the auditory canal and middle ear.
- Audiology services for the treatment of dizziness, noise in the ears and other issues
- Sleep medicine services for issues such as snoring
- Speech therapy
