Oto-rhino-laryngology is the area of medicine that deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT) region. The specialty in Sambhram Hospital is often treated as a unit with surgery of the head and neck. Patients seek treatment from here for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, or base of the skull.

This department is also associated with Speech Therapy and Hearing Therapy. Our audiometric service will take care of measuring hearing acuity for variations in sound intensity and pitch and for tonal purity, involving thresholds and differing frequencies. This audiometric tests determine a patient’s hearing levels with the help of an audiometer, and also measure ability to discriminate between different sound intensities, recognize pitch, or distinguish speech from background noise. Acoustic reflex and otoacoustic emissions also measured here. Results of audiometric tests are used to diagnose hearing loss or diseases of the ear and often make use of an audiogram.
