Inpatient care for otolaryngologic, head and cervical surgeries
Many otolaryngologic diseases can be treated on an outpatient basis, but there are also many diseases when the patient needs hospital care and requires constant, specialist monitoring. You will be provided with highly trained, recognized doctors in the inpatient department of otolaryngologic, head and neck surgery of Medicover Hospital, who are familiar with many modern surgical techniques.

Paediatric otolaryngologic surgeries
In our hospital, we perform otolaryngologic surgeries on children over the age of 4.
For the child, the hospital is a completely new environment, therefore the first consultation comes with a lot of excitement and anxiety. During the personal consultations and the time spent in our hospital, we try to resolve this feeling in both the child and the parents. Before the operation and on the big day as well, the doctor will tell the child, in a way they could understand, what will happen in these few days.
Prior to surgery, our specialists and case managers will also provide parents with the most detailed information possible about the procedure, as well as be able to answer any questions that may arise during the consultations. During the recovery period, our hospital staff strives to make these few days even more comfortable for both the child and the parents.
We believe that parental presence is the greatest healing force for small patients and at the same time the most reassuring for parents, therefore we provide one parent with the opportunity to stay with the child.
The following otolaryngologic surgeries are currently available for children in our hospital:
- children’s tonsillectomy
- children’s adenoidectomy
We accommodate our clients in a modern, pleasant, air-conditioned single room. Each room has a private bathroom, fridge and TV, as well as free WIFI access. We also provide our clients with individual nurse supervision, who will help your continuous recovery during your stay.
