Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can all kinds of hearing loss can be treated?

Contrary to popular opinion, modern ENT practice ensures that you need not suffer from hearing loss and think it is "incurable"! With the latest cutting edge technology and safe surgical techniques, it is possible for every person to hear clearly. Surgery for discharging ears and diseases like otosclerosis has evolved to a state where over 95% of patients could have their hearing restored to near normalcy. Stapedotomy, earlier thought to be a "dangerous" operation is now a safe, daycare procedure, done with great precision with the Micro drill, much safer than laser, and you could leave hospital in two hours after surgery and be back to work!

In the rare event where disease has destroyed the middle ear, and surgery cannot restore hearing, we have new innovations like Bone anchored hearing aids (BAHA) and middle ear implants that are safe and very effective. Unlike earlier, these devices are now so sophisticated that they cannot be seen easily and can even be used to treat "nerve" deafness so that you need not be seen wearing a hearing aid!

Even if modern digital hearing aids can give almost natural hearing, there are a few who cannot benefit. Cochlear implants are a boon to such, and in our center, over 160 people have had this surgery, with outcomes far exceeding expectations. A dream team of surgeons, audiologists and therapists work hard to ensure that this comes true

Q. Is it important to test hearing early in young children even if they do not appear to be having hearing loss? How early can it be done?

With modern diagnostic equipments like OAE, BERA, ASSR and conditioned audiometry, exact diagnosis of hearing disorders of very young infants can be done accurately and quickly and intervention started very early. Research has showed that the earlier children with hearing loss are identified, the better are their chances to speak normally. With technology matching the best in the world, we are hear to ensure that deafness need not prevent children from speaking!

Q. Can allergy be easily managed and can one lead a normal life?

Using modern diagnostic methods, we manage all kinds of allergy and help people perform to their ability, unshackled by disease. Inhalers, unlike popular conception are safe and effective for long-term use, and even young children or pregnant women can use them without worry.

Q. Is there any treatment for dizziness? Do I have to take medications for life?

Latest development and research into balance disorders help us to treat a majority of patients with dizziness without medication but with rehabilitation exercises. Inner ear surgery for dizziness helps the unfortunate few who have very severe disease.

Q. Can all voice disorders be identified and treated? What about professional voice users who use their voice for livelihood?

Videostroboscopy, videonasopharyngostroboscopy, computerized voice analysis and video-endoscope assisted phonomicrosurgery aren't just fancy words, but technology we use to treat patients with voice disorders and professionals like singers, teachers or public performers to safeguard their voice which is, for them, their means of livelihood. Even patients with cancer of the voice box can be taught to speak again, even after surgery to remove the larynx.

Q. Is sinus surgery a major procedure requiring long bed rest?

Most people do not know that sinus endoscopes can be used not only to effectively treat sinus infections, but also some diseases of the eye and brain, without ugly external incisions or long periods of bed rest.

Q. Is snoring a disease? Can it be completely cured?

Computerized sleep lab and sleep analysis can find out if you or your spouse has a dangerous variety of snoring causing daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure and chance of strokes. Not only that, but you could be cured completely using CPAP machines or surgeries like UPPP, tongue base reduction by laser or mandibular advancement.

Otology Master Class
From the Organizing desk

Dear friends,

MESIARC CME is here again. We have always strived to bring you the best in Otology, over the past 10 years, Our live surgery workshops, have focused on cutting edge surgery, detailed teaching, scientific deliberations of the highest order and top class video coverage from one of the most advanced otological theatre suites in the world this time, we are focusing on the enigma of budding otologists - cholesteatoma and Otosclerosis. Two very diverse conditions, but requiring surgical expertise of the highest order to deliver good results. The two-day surgical workshops will feature both myself and a luminary in Otology, Dr. Ashesh Bhumker from Thane, Mumbai and we would be demonstrating in detail the finer aspects of surgical techniques that can be adapted by a keen otologist to sustain good results over time.

We have lined up an array of diverse cases- and the techniques that we intend to demonstrate include minimal access stapedotomy, Laser stapes surgery, stapes surgery with stapes head amputation for tendon preservation, bone obliteration technique for cholesteatoma, a variety of grafting techniques, intact canal wall tympanoplasty for limited cholesteatoma and a series of revision surgeries.

Do send in your registrations early as we have to limit attendance to 70 seats. A smaller crowd is ideal for active discussions which is something so characteristic of MESIARC CME programs and we do not want to deviate from that agenda.

Yours truly,

Manoj MP

Otology in Perspective Live Surgery 2015
From the Organizing desk

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

Otologic surgery is special for its intricate anatomy, extreme precision and attention to detail. Traditionally done with the operating microscope, and now in some centers across the world with the endoscope, the repetoire of the art is widening.

Confusion persists. Advocates of endoscopic work claim that the microscope is passe, and traditional surgeons laugh off the ability of the one handed

The truth lies somewhere in between; there are specific conditions that require either of both of the techniques. Dogmatism, they say, is the end of science.

Mesiarc brings you a unique live surgical workshop- a demonstration of both endoscopic and microscopic otologic skills.

MESIARC has always stood for dissipation of knowledge and the live surgical workshops are not pubilicity events, nor are they grandiose. We have just one agenda- to educate.

This workshop with a difference aims to demonstrate both endoscopic and microsopic skills in otologic surgery, while attempting to define which is more suitable for what. Do come and enjoy!

Yours truly,

Manoj MP  
Organizing chairman
