When should I consult with an ENT doctor?

If you or a family member have been suffering from an ear, nose or throat problem that causes an unordinary level of discomfort or dysfunction, it may be time to see an ENT specialist.

Do I need surgery for a lump in the front of my neck?

Most lumps in the front of the neck are caused by an over-active thyroid gland. Our ENT doctors will work closely with an endocrinologist to determine the underlying cause before deciding upon medical or surgical intervention.

Do you offer a treatment for snoring?

SKH ENT Surgery provides patients with treatment options for snoring based on the cause, severity and other complications. Make an appointment with our ENT specialist to discuss more about your condition and the treatments available.

Why can't I just live with my sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a very serious multi-factorial disease that is known to increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, so it is a good idea to consult an ENT doctor. At SKH ENT Surgery, we specialise in both medical and surgical treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
