Improvement of the quality of life, comes through Gachon University Gil Medical Center

The importance of the ear, nose and throat to convey each other's opinions and feelings in human life is an important part that no more need to emphasize. Otorhinolaryngological diseases not only make life uncomfortable, but in severe cases, can also isolate patients from daily lives. Our medical staffs will always keep this in mind and try to solve your difficulties.

Otitis media

Otitis media refers to all inflammatory diseases that occur in the middle ear cavity inside the eardrum. Most acute otitis media heals without a sequelae, but if the inflammation is not completely cured, it appears as a form of chronic otitis media with persistent perforation of the eardrum. The condition of the external auditory meatus, eardrum, and middle ear is examined through an endoscope, and treatment policies are determined through various hearing tests, including pure-tone audiometry and computed tomography of the temporal bone. Depending on the condition, medical treatment and surgical treatment are needed to eliminate inflammation, prevent recurrence, restore hearing and prevent complications.


Dizziness refers to the feeling of turning around, but medically, it is any symptom that you feel movement even though you or objects around you are stationary. As a test to diagnose dizziness, hearing tests, vestibular function tests, temporal bone CT or MRI, neurological tests, cardiac function tests, and blood tests should be performed. Treatment includes anti-hypertensive drugs, neurostabilizers, antiemetics, etc. for dizziness, vomiting, and nausea in the acute phase.

Hearing loss

Reasons that the ear that is hard to hear cannot be heard may be when the external auditory meatus is blocked, exudative otitis media, and sudden hearing loss or Meniere's disease. In addition, senile hearing loss is also increasing due to aging. Because hearing loss patterns vary from person to person and the degree of hearing loss varies by frequency, accurate examination and careful consultation from an otolaryngologist is essential. Treatments include hearing aids, middle ear implants, or cochlear implants.


Chronic sinusitis is a disease commonly referred to as "sinusitis", which causes symptoms such as runny nose and stuffy nose. In severe cases, it can cause complications such as eye infections as well as respiratory symptoms such as coughing and sputum. Gachon University Gil Hospital Otolaryngology carries out cutting-edge precision surgery using a navigation system to reduce complications and maximize the effectiveness of surgery.

External deformity of nose

"The value of beauty is eternal"

The nose is the most prominent part of the face and is important in determining a person's first impression. Outward deformity causes not only cosmetic problems, but also functional problems such as stuffy nose. Otorhinolaryngology is performing external surgery for cosmetic and functional purposes. In addition, in order to increase cosmetic satisfaction, we operate a one-stop surgical system that simultaneously performs all procedures for a beautiful face, such as nose surgery, forehead colostomy, maxillofacial surgery, botox injection, and filler injection.

Sleep apnea

Snoring/Sleep apnea is a symptom of narrowing of the pores (airways) during sleep, resulting in faster air flow and shaking or clogging around the uvula. As the oxygen supply decreases, you can't get a good night's sleep, which can lead to tired and sleepy symptoms during the day, and also to chronic fatigue and reduced concentration. If left untreated, complications such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and erectile dysfunction may occur, so accurate diagnosis and treatment are necessary.

Head and neck cancer

Malignant tumor from pharynx, larynx, oral cavity, nasal mucosa and salivary glands. Cervical lymph node metastases are often accompanied. The incidence is increasing to about 5% of all cancers, and biopsy, fine needle aspiration cytology, CT, MRI, PET, and endoscopy are required for accurate diagnosis and staging. Surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy may be performed depending on the diagnosis and stage, and after sufficient discussion among patients, caregivers, and medical staff.

Speech disease

Various types of speech disorders such as vocal cord oncology, sexual portal cancer, vocal cord paralysis, and functional vocal disorder occur. The vocal cord state and voice state are measured using advanced voice test equipment such as laryngeal strobe, computer voice analysis, and laryngeal electromyography. Depending on the patient's condition, a treatment method that can provide the optimal voice is selected, such as vocal therapy, laryngeal microsurgery, laryngeal skeletal surgery, vocal cord surgery using filler, and Botox injection.
