Ear, Nose, & Throat Surgery

  • Our ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgical teams specialize in the following procedures.

    Balloon Sinuplasty
    Memorial University Medical Center was the first in the region to offer an innovative new technique to relieve chronic sinusitis.

    Myringotomy (Ear Tubes)
    Myringotomy is an outpatient surgery to treat chronic ear infections. It involves placing a small tube in the center of the ear drum to drain fluid and ventilate the area. This procedure is often performed on young children.

    Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
    Endoscopic sinus surgery is a procedure to open sinus passages so they can drain properly. It can entail removing blockages or creating new openings within the sinuses. The surgery is performed with a small tube called an endoscope. At Memorial University Medical Center, we offer the InstaTrack image-guided system that uses CT technology to guide the surgeon. We also offer Balloon Sinuplasty, as described above.

    Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy
    Tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy is the surgical removal of the tonsils and adenoids. It is an outpatient procedure and is usually performed on children. The procedure can relieve chronic tonsillitis and adenoiditis.
