Ear Nose and Throat Surgery

Background History

The Department of Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) at KEM Hospital holds a prestigious position as one of the longest-standing among all ENT departments within the Municipal Corporation Hospitals. Its origins trace back to the initiative of Dr. T.O. Shah, originally a general surgeon. This department has been instrumental in pioneering microsurgical procedures for ear-related conditions and similar fields.

Over the years, it has played a pivotal role in educating and training over 1000 ENT specialists, many of whom now practice both in India and abroad, imparting knowledge in various otolorhinolaryngological surgeries. A unique distinction of our department is its consistent two-decade-long record of organizing microsurgical ear and endoscopic sinus surgery workshops, contributing significantly to disseminating modern concepts of ear and sinus surgery to even the remotest corners of India.

Currently, the department is under the leadership of Dr. Hetal Marfatia. We provide a wide range of services across multiple ENT subspecialties and prioritize the comprehensive training of our students, equipping them with the skills required for the accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of various ENT diseases.
