Care at NUH

Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery

The Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery was established in June 1987, upon the appointment of Prof Yeoh Kian Hian as Chief of Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) at the National University Hospital. Initially occupying a modest clinical space of1,600 square feet clinic with three consulting rooms, a treatment room and an area for basic audiological assessment, the department opened its doors to the public in January 1988.
