How do they treat in Consilium Medicum

Every patient undergoes exhaustive tests, and individual and most effective treatment methods are chosen for our patients. Modern technologies, materials and methods save time on tests and treatment, as well as reduce duration of the post-surgical period.
Before deciding in favour of surgical interference, the otorhinolaryngologist performs various tests that include examination of respective organs, laboratory diagnostics, computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and others. If needed, a patient is referred to other specialists for advice. With all that, the patient is supervised by the same doctor on both outpatient and inpatient stages of the treatment. The time spent in a hospital is minimized to 1-2 days. The post-surgical period is usually very short as well due to application of preserving methods and contemporary materials. Nevertheless, even after leaving the hospital you are still supervised by your doctor during several weeks.
Treatment of children
Adenoids is the most common ENT problem of children. When necessary, Consilium Medicum otorhinolaryngologist can remove the adenoids (indication) if conservative treatment course is ineffective.
Cryotherapy (applying cold) is used to treat for chronic tonsillitis. It is an absolutely painless procedure processed in outpatient setting without requiring a lot of time. Surgical intervention in a hospital under general anaesthesia is also possible. General anaesthesia reduces stress effects and excludes negative impressions of the surgery.
All surgeries may be held in a day stationary, which means the child can return home the same day the surgery took place. Parents can spend all pre and post-surgery time with their child.
