Deafness can be partially or completely impaired. The patient shall need to see an ENT specialist in case they are suffering from partial or full deafness. In addition, other ear disorders such as an ear infection, hearing impairment, diseases tend to affect balance, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), or pain in the ear are too treated by Department of ENT at Asian.

We have expertise managing the Cochlear Implants (CI) and proven results with surgeries on patients who are profoundly deaf or hard of hearing. Cochlear Implants that are primarily designed to mimic natural hearing are often referred to as bionic ear and work though using special technologies that mimic the non-working
parts in the ear.

In its endeavor to deliver cutting-edge hearing solutions, Department of ENT brings Cochlear to gift sound to its patients.
