Outpatient and Surgical Facility :
We are a Tertiary Referral Centre, with an annual work load of over 1200 new referrals, drawing patient load from all over India and surrounding countries. A quarter of those (300) are in the paediatric age group. Nearly 50% (600) of all new patients need surgical procedure – a rather high proportion, due to tertiary referral status. As a matter of deliberate policy decision, all our anesthetic colleagues have undergone specific training to provide expertise for our cases. This means that we can provide 24-hour high standard surgical cover for critical patients coming at all odd hours from our vast patient coverage all over India and surrounding countries. Operating suites are fully equipped with ultrapulse carbon dioxide laser, high frequency jet ventilation and diode laser. In common with the universal trend, early glottis cancers undergo surgical excision as primary modality. Dedicated histo-pathologist provides frozen section report and expert evaluation of accurately oriented excised specimen.
Post-graduate Education and Training :
We run a postgraduate training programme with an intake of four students per year. We also have two fully funded university-accredited annual fellowships in Advance Laryngology. Additionally, we have run short two week-courses for surgeons seconded by Iraqi Government. Apart from on-going teaching, we also run intensive three-day hand-on annual training courses, accredited by Maharashtra Medical Council on voice, airway and swallowing disorders. The hands on surgical training is provided in an advanced simulation and surgical training lab equipped with laser, microscope and simulation lab.As part of the Centre Accreditation awarded to DMH by the RCS, Eng., our Laryngology courses are also accredited, a testimony of high standard we strive to maintain. RCS Eng. has also approved the one-year Fellowship programme in Laryngology. This is the first overseas RCS Senior Clinical Fellowship to have been approved by the RCS outside UK.
