American Hospital Dubai’s team of ENT specialists includes some of the best audiologists in Dubai. Their primary focus is the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss and balance disorders, and they also treat patients suffering from disorders in the auditory and vestibular system portion of the ear.

Audiologists make use of several testing strategies – such as hearing tests, otoacoustic emission measurements, videonystagmography and electrophysiologic tests – to assess a patient’s hearing, determine the seriousness of any damage, find out which portion of their hearing is impacted by the disorder, and the exact location of any lesion that may be causing their hearing loss. If a patient is diagnosed with hearing loss or any form of vestibular abnormality, such as vertigo, the audiologist will recommend a treatment plan to assist with the healing.Our ENT team treats patients of all ages and our audiologists assist in the rehabilitation of disorders such as tinnitus, auditory processing, cochlear implants and hearing aid implementation.

The team of specialists at the Ear, Nose and Throat Center of American Hospital Dubai features some of the finest ENT surgeons in the region who provide complete surgical options for ear infections and to help restore hearing loss.

The team also specializes in cochlear implants. These are small, complex electronic devices that can help individuals with severe hearing problems to regain their sense of sound. They consist of a small external device that sits directly behind the ear, with another portion surgically planted beneath the skin. Cochlear implants provide more effective assistance than traditional hearing aids, which simply increase sound volume without improving the quality of speech understanding. In contrast, cochlear implants transmit a clarity of sound that is often critical for hearing impaired patients in order to understand speech and language. Cochlear implant surgery at American Hospital Dubai is followed by a rehabilitation program and training period that provides the patient with optimal hearing assistance for the most positive results.

The human face consists largely of the oral cavity, the maxilla  and mandible (upper and lower jaws), as well as the nose and its adjoining sinuses. As our portals of nutrition and respiration, they all serve functions vital to our well-being. However, due to the close proximity of each of these organs, an infection or disease in one can easily contaminate others.

American Hospital Dubai’s ENT experts not only treat and remove cancers in the ENT areas. They are also masters of the endoscopic surgery and paranasal sinuses surgery that is performed to clear sinuses and remove growths and other polyps, restoring quality of life to patients.

Neoplastic disease is a form of cancer characterized by uncontrolled and chaotic proliferation of a group of cells. It can occur in any part of the body, however, as one of the most complex regions, the head is also one of the most sensitive. This is why the  development of tumors in that region must be treated with the greatest importance and handled with the utmost care.

The ENT Center of American Hospital Dubai has a team of highly-trained surgeons who  specialize in nasal cavity, larynx and hypopharynx neoplastic disease surgeries.

Head and neck surgeons, also known as otolaryngologists, are ENT physicians with specialized expertise in the treatment of tumors of the head and neck, as well as endocrine gland disorders of the neck. These include benign and severe tumors and disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands.
Some of the symptoms exhibited by patients suffering from such diseases include hoarseness, swallowing difficulties, acute pain in the throat area, weight loss, chronic ear pain without hearing loss, painless neck masses and noisy breathing.

American Hospital Dubai’s team of outstanding ENT surgeons administers treatments that include surgical procedures, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. As with every disorder, every individual treatment plan is meticulously developed following a thorough analysis of the patient’s medical record and history, as well as the exact location and stage of the disorder.

Surgeries of the thyroid gland and tumors of the head and neck sometimes require the collaboration of a group of medical experts, including the opinions and expertise of physicians, dieticians, physical therapists and speech language pathologists along with reconstructive surgeons, neurosurgeons and radiation and medical oncologists, among others.


In most cases, facial plastic surgery is elective. It is reconstructive surgery that alters and modifies the facial features of the patient, and includes standard procedures such as rhinoplasty and lip injections.
In addition, there are certain medical cases, such as those involving severe tumors or skin disorders, that can benefit from reconstructive surgery to help with the healing of treated areas.

Whatever the case, the expert team of facial plastic surgeons at the American Hospital Dubai pour the same care and dedication into every single one of their procedures, continuously providing patients with the highest level of service, skill and knowledge.

Located directly below the lower jaw, the submandibular gland is a salivary gland that ejects saliva through a tube towards the mouth. In some instances, the tubes that drain the saliva become blocked, usually due to stones formed by the saliva itself. This can cause an infection to occur in the salivary gland. The surgeons at American Hospital Dubai will then operate to remove the submandibular gland, a procedure that is performed under general anesthesia.

American Hospital Dubai’s experienced speech-language pathologists employ their expert knowledge with this form of therapy, effectively treating articulation, language, stuttering, voice, cognition and swallowing disorders in their patients.
