ENT Services & Conditions We Treat

Under the expert care of Dr Gan Eng Cern, our ENT specialist clinic offers advanced diagnosis and treatment for a wide spectrum of ENT conditions. From common allergies to complex disorders affecting the ear, nose, throat, and related structures, our goal is to deliver personalised care that ensures the best possible outcomes for our patients.

  • Maintaining the health and functionality of your nose and sinuses is crucial. When your nasal passages and sinuses are compromised, it can lead to other complications, such as worsening of asthma, snoring and OSA.

  • Whether it manifests as a loud rattling or mild snorting sound, snoring can be a source of irritation for both snorers and their bed partners. According to international studies, up to 40% of adults snore, making it a widespread issue, including for many individuals in Singapore.

  • Unlike adults, children may struggle to communicate their symptoms accurately. Common ENT issues in children may manifest as fever and irritability, difficulty in learning or delayed speech development and recurring instances of colds or flu.

  • The human ear serves a dual purpose: it is not only crucial for hearing but also plays a vital role in maintaining balance. The ear has a complex system that sends signals to the brain, enabling us to maintain equilibrium and stability through different head positions and movements.

  • The throat, located at the back of your mouth, encompasses several key structures: the tonsils, upper part of the oesophagus (food pipe), trachea (windpipe) and larynx (voice box). It serves as a shared pathway for both the food we eat and the air we breathe.

  • The head and neck region is a complex area that houses important organs and structures, including the ear, nose and throat. Although there are overlaps with these structures, conditions affecting the head and neck typically originate from specific parts like the oral cavity, pharynx (throat), salivary glands, thyroid glands, as well as muscles, nerves, major blood vessels, and the skin and soft tissues in the neck.
