Centre for Paediatric Medicine and Adolescent Medicine

Clinic for Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders, Plastic Surgery

As one of the leading supraregional ENT clinics, we offer all modern treatment procedures to adults and children. As a result of the cooperation with all correlated specialties, even the most complex of clinical pictures can be adequately treated. 

Treatment of adults and children with narrowing of the upper airways is our nationally recognised emphasis. Middle ear surgery and insertion of cochlear implants and implantable hearing devices is one of our most important concerns. Paedaudiology of the Olgahospital takes care of early recognition in infant’s hearing disorders. Additionally, we focus on children with cystic fibrosis and paranasal sinuses diseases. State-of-the-art technical equipment, continuous qualification of our staff and a friendly atmosphere grant modern treatment and care of our patients.
